Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String concatenation

How do I perform this string concatenation?



2 Answers

name = "nick" (you need to have the spaces)

name = "foo"
>>> foo
print(name + " bar")
>>> foo bar
name += " bar"
>>>foo bar

So to concatenation of string you use the operator "+" but the variable will not keep the last concatenated string if you want the variable to keep the string from concatenation you should use : variable += string
