I have a question

what is meaning of empty string. ex) ' ', " " Thank you.

2 Answers

An empty string "" essentially means that the variable is null. It has zero content, but it is still a string.

You can test this by running this:

empty = ""

if empty:
    print("String exists")

if not empty:
   print("String does not exist")

Hope that helps.

Thank you Max Ungless. How do you practice Python? How to get used to it?

Chang Hyeon Lee, I have been coding in Python for nearly 3 years now. Initially, I just needed a programmatic language to join my HTML, CSS and JS skills together. Now I develop websites in Django and love it.

To practice I can recommend some resources:

All good websites that I use to practice Python. Of course, building your own projects will always be so much better than these, but when you're out of ideas, do some challenges from these websites.

Hope that helps,
