Welcome1:46 with Craig Dennis
Welcome to Introducing Lists. Let's list a couple of things.
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi, I'm Craig and I'm a developer. 0:08 In this course, we're going to discuss a built-in Python data type known as a list. 0:11 Now, lists are a powerful data structure that allow you to group multiple values 0:16 together in a single container. 0:20 But before we get started, let me list a couple of things 0:22 just to make sure that you're comfortable with your learning ability. 0:26 Now first, on our things to talk about list, 0:29 I'd like to make sure that you've taken the prerequisites for this course. 0:31 I want to make sure that we're on the same page and 0:34 that you know what I'm talking about. 0:35 Our next item that I'd like to remind you about is that there are speed 0:38 controls on the video. 0:41 Feel free to slow me down or speed me up. 0:42 And also, don't forget that you can pause and rewind me whenever you need to. 0:46 You're in complete control. 0:49 Next item. 0:52 There are teacher notes attached to most videos. 0:52 Make sure to check them out. 0:55 Lots of great information is tucked away in there. 0:56 Our final item on our things to talk about list is, 0:59 there is a wonderful and uber friendly community here on Treehouse. 1:02 Ask questions and answer questions. 1:06 I promise that you'll learn a ton just hanging out there. 1:08 Nothing helps solidify your knowledge like answering a question. 1:11 So we just ran through a handy list of things that I wanted to talk to you about. 1:14 We use lists all the times. 1:18 There's grocery lists, to-do lists, even lists of products on web pages. 1:19 Python provides a very clear and easy way to create lists. 1:23 In this course, we'll learn how to create, combine, manipulate, and 1:27 use lists to our advantage. 1:30 By the end of this course, we'll build an interactive console application 1:33 that will prompt the user to build a grocery list. 1:37 You can take this concept and build any short of other list that you can think of. 1:40 Sound fun? 1:43 Let's get started. 1:44
