1 00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:09,245 [MUSIC] 2 00:00:09,245 --> 00:00:11,309 Welcome to Python Sequences. 3 00:00:11,309 --> 00:00:14,520 My name is Ashley Boucher and I'll be your instructor for this course. 4 00:00:14,520 --> 00:00:17,890 This course does have some prerequisites, so go ahead and check the teacher's notes 5 00:00:17,890 --> 00:00:21,350 before continuing to make sure that you're as prepared as possible. 6 00:00:21,350 --> 00:00:25,150 As you might already know, a Python sequence is an ordered group of things. 7 00:00:25,150 --> 00:00:28,050 In Python, there are several different types of sequences. 8 00:00:28,050 --> 00:00:32,620 And you're probably already familiar with a few of them, lists, tuples, and strings. 9 00:00:32,620 --> 00:00:35,350 There are also ranges which will be covered in this course. 10 00:00:35,350 --> 00:00:37,060 And there are also sequences tailored for 11 00:00:37,060 --> 00:00:39,870 working with binary data, which won't be covered in this course. 12 00:00:41,160 --> 00:00:43,810 We're going to focus less on what these sequences are and 13 00:00:43,810 --> 00:00:45,360 more on what you can do with them. 14 00:00:45,360 --> 00:00:47,730 Like iterating over them, creating ranges and 15 00:00:47,730 --> 00:00:52,000 slices, easily getting information about elements in a sequence, like the min and 16 00:00:52,000 --> 00:00:57,060 the max, and even comparing, concatenating, and multiplying sequences. 17 00:00:57,060 --> 00:01:00,590 As usual, feel free to slow me down and speed me up as needed. 18 00:01:00,590 --> 00:01:01,420 If you have questions, 19 00:01:01,420 --> 00:01:04,400 the Treehouse community is an excellent place to reach out, 20 00:01:04,400 --> 00:01:08,330 get to know your peers, and contribute to both your learning and others. 21 00:01:08,330 --> 00:01:08,870 When you're ready, 22 00:01:08,870 --> 00:01:11,570 come join me in the next video to start learning about iteration.
