Using Python Dictionaries
Dictionaries are one of the fundamental data types that we use in Python to solve real problems. These are handy when we don't need a sequential list of items, and it is more useful to have unique identifiers for looking up values. In this hands-on lab, we'll be working through some exercises demonstrating that we understand how to add, remove, modify, and read items from dictionaries in Python.
To feel comfortable completing this lab you'll want to know how to do the following:
- Working with dictionary literals. Watch the "Dictionaries" video from the Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer Certification course.
- Using Dictionary functions and methods. Watch the "Dictionary Methods" video from the Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer Certification course.
