  • How can you ask about a person birth position in her or his family? Like the answer would be (I’m middle child or I’m first born)?

  • don’t use ‘if not emp_list:’ that would also be true if you passed an empty list, meaning it would ignore an empty list you passed in, and always create a new one itself which might be surprising

  • Hello, I am a native Spanish speaker and if you are reading this and you are a native English speaker (either British or American) I would like to invite you to contact me to practice and learn together.

  • I just realized that help actually prints the help messages and doesn’t return them as a string because it printed None on 25:50. Good to know.
    Also, you could have used to “from os import *” and show how reading a file fails because of the clash with Good video anyways.

  • Just use markers on the tabs and keep them. The language itself is flawed because of this reliance on formatting. Most languages use beginning and end keywords for code blocks

  • Thank you for your videos Corey! Perfect pace/depth combination. One question on naming variables. Many times I want to create a class or a function, and then assign a variable with the same concept. Example: I create a class dog: and then I would like to create a variable called dog=dog(). Which I cannot obviously do. Is there any good naming convention in such cases? Define the class something like class class_dog:?

  • I’ve been stretching for 1+ hour every day and I’m as stiff as I’ve ever been. I’m so #%%^ frustrated.

    I can get a bit looser after stretching but overnight I just revert back to my inflexible self, if not even more tight than before.

  • Process ” program 1″ is running.
    Program 1 is not allowed to run in parallel. Would you like to stop the running the running one?
    Every time when i try to run a code this problem occurs, how can i solve this problem? Please someone help

  • Okay, mate, first one is not a mistake. Word “remember” was used as “remind” some time ago. As in Shakespeare’s “Tempest”:

    Is there more toil? Since thou dost give me pains,

    Let me remember thee what thou hast promised,

    Which is not yet perform’d me.

  • Hi I am so new to python, I am using “Python Crash course” 2nd edition by Eric Matthes. So I am learning step by step, I followed all instructions to install Python and Sublime text editor. So yes it does start off with Hell World, now when I did this for my very first time everything worked, and it worked a couple more times, then I took the next step of adding the variable and that is where I messed things up. I went back traced my steps but I could not get it to work. I took the final step of completely uninstalling Python and Sublime and reinstalling it. Problem is when the reinstall is complete and I open Sublime it still shows the old code, I was hoping that wiping everything out would clear the history as well but it did not.

    Now I am using windows 10 home edition, with a system type of 64-bits OS and X^$-base processor, and it is all running on a HP laptop. Now asking where I went wrong would be just silly, but I would like to know how to fix this or find out where things took a wrong turn.
    Reason I am learning python just because…

  • I would like to know some channel teaches Java as neat as Corey does here in Python.. ����
    People can suggest your options pls.. ����

  • Wow! I actually have a developer job since 5-6 months and the thing with the default list screwed me up ��
    Great video, you’re really helping people out!

  • thank to goodness I found your channel, learning English was never so fun and easy. I really appreciate what are you doing. I’m going to tell all my friends and english classmate to subscribe. I just fell in love with your donuts phrase. I’m one of those who think all you need is love & donuts.

  • One of the problems I faced early on was that I was installing packages using PIP, and then when I would try to import those packages with VS Code it’d tell me that these packages were not installed. After doing some digging I ended up finding that I was installing those packages for an older version of Python (3.6), and trying to compile my code with a 3.7 interrupter. Maybe you should mention this in one of your future videos. I feel like this could be an issue that some people will struggle with for a while.

  • Learned a bunch! Thanks!

    A question about default arguments. Overuse of NoneType causes a lot of bugs in my team’s code. We’ve insisted in many places to initialize optional args to avoid type switching. I was not aware of the buggy behavior you outlined, but the `if val is None` pattern adds a lot of boilerplate for more complex functions. Do you have any more advanced notes on how to keep my mid-level pythonistas from getting burned?

  • One of your best videos. Discussing the simple ways to change the angles up is brilliant. Feeling things in my hips, hamstrings and calves I haven’t felt in years. Much appreciated:)

  • @Corey Schafer i followed your sublime 3 steup video and setup as it mention but whenver i run code without any import statement i get error like this
    /usr/local/bin/python3: can’t find ‘_main_’ module in ”
    please help me to fix

  • I’d like to suggest you to do one video showing the highlighted features for each new python release.

    It would cost you like 10videos per year or so… it would be really better than the notepatch text

  • Wow, this was amazingly helpful!
    I had no idea about that default args problem…
    And the iterator exhaustion issue seems super helpful for future hair ripping sessions!

  • Dont use the language that is designed to make you be the least productive version of yourself in the first place, and then you dont need to learn about 5 of its most annoying details!

  • Sorry, I feel dumb to say that but I didn’t get the difference between shade and shadow. Shadows always occur when sunlight hits. It only shines in one direction (away from the object) because we only have one sun. How is it possible to have two shadows falling in different directions. Can anybody help tp explain more?

  • I am TREMENDOUSLY grateful for this video! I was aching (pun intended aha) for different angles for my hamstrings and you showed me exactly what I needed to see! Thank you so much!

  • Thank you for your videos.

    I am about 1 1/2 months new to Python. I saw this video and went back to look at some of the self-learning I’ve been doing. I found a way, actually, I am sure I copied some code and modified it today to see if it would work. I can’t tell you why it works but it works. I guess I better figure out why it works so I can feel confident in coding.

    I am using Pycharm latest version. I am using Python 3.7 on a Windows 10 machine.

    import time

    from datetime import datetime

    def display_time():

    t = time.strftime(‘%Y-%m-%d (%I:%M:%S %p)’)








    My result was the result you got after you fixed it.
    Please, some smart person explain why it works, I don’t have the knowledge to do it.

  • The body has a number of kinetic chains, so if the hamstrings are tight, then probably the ligaments and muscles in the feet, calves, hamstrings, butt area, lower back, and perhaps in the middle back, are tight as well. Thus instead of just stretching the hamstrings separately, I think it is better to stretch the entire kinetic chain all at once. Thus I would say it is ok to also bend your back in order to stretch your lower and middler back at the same time as stretching your hamstrings, but the key is to feel the tension from stretching throughout the ENTIRE kinetic chain, and not on one particular area, such as the hamstrings or the lower back.

  • Dude your channel is fantastic. I’ve taken two college courses so far where we used python and I always wished the professors would teach us the fundamental tricks of the trade. They didn’t. They only taught about the big concepts like Encapsulation, Inheritance, Polymorphism, Algorithms, Data Structures etc.. which is obviously important to learn but I feel like the basics are so critical yet overlooked in the curriculum. Thankfully your channel is available for us to learn. Thanks!

  • Hai papa, would you mind to tell or share more specific about characteristics of all tenses? I need this so much to help me do my task of translation from Bahasa to English.

  • Thanks a lot for that setting! I thought tabs were already translated to spaces (at least when writing html and js). Now I don’t have to worry about tabs in python neither

  • I stretch my hamstrings after I have a hot shower. I let the hot water on my back for a while and then bend over while my muscles are nice and loose and stretch them out 2-3 times for about 30 seconds. It works.

  • The mutable default argument this is just a horrible mess and a bug imo. How is this supposed to be helpful in any way? Oh yeah, my default works only THE FIRST TIME AND NEVER RESETS. Thankfully I never had to work with defaults.

  • Hi Matt, does stretching hamstrings by keeping the leg straight stretch the sciatic nerve too? In which case do we need to bend the knee and continue the stretch? Would love to know your thoughts

  • hey guys, please help me on this issue “(530, b’5.5.1 Authentication Required. Learn more at.

  • haha i ran into that second one, was playing around with the random library, and saved the file as random, thought i broke something was about to uninstall the whole thing until i found this answer.

  • you are super amazing teacher…i leand alot from you…your way of teaching is just awesome…please make more videos..God bless you

  • Aaaargh, you bastard. I paused the video at the first example and was staring at the code, wondering where the hell the problem was supposed to be! xD

  • I did notice your voice is different than normal. I was thinking it was my computer’s issue. Well, great video again!! Hope you get better soon!!

  • Thanks Corey, your videos have helped me to build clear python foundations. I always get to your channel for clarification and learning! Excellent work

  • Superb video. You are a natural teacher. Your sincerity to help people avoid mistakes and do things properly is palpable. Thank you!

  • Pitfall No. 2 was literally me a couple of weeks ago!:) I tried out a package and of course I named my testing script file after the package itself!

    Thanks for making this video, I really appreciate your effort. And it shows: this video feels concise but still in-depth; I can easily follow your thoughts and arguments. This is one of the best tutorials videos I have seen so far. This very video is what makes youtube such an amazing place!

  • Regarding the emp_list=[], it’s run once. But why its value is kept for the next run? This is a variable that is local to the function and should disappear at end of each run of the function.

  • Learning Python is THE mistake. lol
    I prefer C++, it makes more sense to me in terms of logic, and on top of that it is more documented and documented more concisely.

  • Excuse me, Aly, Thank you for your lesson. However, after all, I have one question left. If you happened to have any free time to answer, would you mind shedding more light on (shade/shadow), please? Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

  • Awww! Thank you so much Aly! Your lessons are always so very helpful!
    And I just adore your sence of humour!
    I am so happy that I’ve found your channel!
    I wish you the best of your luck with your channel and your job!

  • If my voice sounds a bit off then it’s because I’m getting over a cold. I hope everyone finds this overview of these common mistakes useful. To save you time, I put a list of the common mistakes and the timestamps for each in the description of the video. And again, this video was sponsored by Skillshare.

  • I love this one cause everybody says “borrow” instead of “lend” I don’t know why. Well, at least people I know (and it’s not a native English speaker like me or they’re just kids) and sometimes they make me doubt, specially kids i knew cause all of them were native English speakers. And thanks a lot! Shade and shadow was also a big problem for me.

  • Very helpful, thanks for sharing! I’ve been using Python for years, mostly v2 and this helps push me to switch 100% to Python v3 so I can curb my old bad habits.

  • You’re so FUNNY ��
    I’m happy I’ve found your channel. You are amazing! Maybe soon I will stop making so many grammar mistakes. Thank You!��

  • 14:52 Wow, that is REALLY annoying. Coming from PHP, this would have driven me mad, and probably still will! Thanks for sharing.

  • A:Hi Owen. How you doing ? B:I’m doing very well. But I afraid I don’t remember your name? A:Oh dear ,I borrowed a few money from you yesterday. B: oh you remind me ,Indeed I lended to you yesterday. And You are Papa?

  • I thought I liked Python, but now I doubt it. Who comes up with these variable ideas? “Default arguments are only executed once when the function is declared “

  • Woow I didn’t know about the default argument one. That’s bizarre behavior you don’t see in other languages…I need to go back and check some things now lol

  • I still don’t understand the mistake with default arguments…
    emp_list is supposed to be a local variable of that function, how can it survive multiple function calls?

  • thanx for such good advise but i wanna ask that if somebody do wrong stretch and hurt the hip bone whlie doing 1st step of stretching. how to treat that torture?

  • Hey Corey, I like your videos. #awesome_teacher #awesome_person
    Can u create WhatsApp group, where we all share our issue and help full tips and trick for python lovers

  • Stumbled aboud the second one a while ago, took waay too long to figure out what happened there..
    asterisk-import: another example that can happen is if you import sys and os, both have a ‘path’ member, these two might be found a little more often than glob and html
    Thanks for the video!:D

  • I keep injuring my lower back and the area just under the shoulder blade. What stretches can I do to help with this pain. Sometimes the pain prevents me from rolling or even doing drills on techniques (only been doing bjj 10 weeks)

  • WHY range is the wrong keyword for that prog and below prog not working.

    N = int(input(“Enter your No. “))
    if (N % 2 = 0):
    if ( range(2,5)):
    print(‘Not Weird’)
    elif(N > 20):
    print(‘Not Weird’)

  • Are you then explaining each exercise how to do that as a beginner? Because I can’t basically do any of those stretch moves, cause I can’t really touch my foot no matter what

  • Thank you! Great tips, all of them. I understood so much more of the good things with yoga, other types of sports and my body in general when I understood I shouldn´t stop breathing through the poses. Without thinking about it, I had automatically held my breath, which makes everything much more difficult. It´s crazy how much easier things became when I learned that.

  • I tend to do very light stretching before class when I’m cold and try to focus on doing static longer stretches post class when I’m already warm. I had heard you can injure yourself by doing static stretching pre-class, and that it was best to warm up doing techniques and drilling then stretch after sparring. Is this school of thought just a myth; should I be spending a minute per stretch before class?
