The Python Standard Library

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

Python exposes a lot of built-in functionality through its standard library.

The standard library is a huge collection of all sort of utilities, ranging from math utilities to debugging to creating graphical user interfaces.

You can find the full list of standard library modules here:

Some of the important modules are:

Let’s introduce how to use a module of the standard library. You already know how to use modules you create, importing from other files in the program folder.

Well that’s the same with modules provided by the standard library:

import math

math.sqrt(4) # 2.0


from math import sqrt

sqrt(4) # 2.0

We’ll soon explore the most important modules individually to understand what we can do with them.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
