Python any(): Powered Up Boolean Function

Python

As a Python programmer, you’ll frequently deal with Booleans and conditional statements—sometimes very complex ones. In those situations, you may need to rely on tools that can simplify logic and consolidate information. Fortunately, any() in Python is such a tool. It looks through the elements in an iterable and returns a single value indicating whether any element is true in a Boolean context, or truthy.

In this course, you’ll learn how to:

Use any() and not any()
Elimate long or chains
Use any() with list comprehensions
Evalute values that aren’t explicitly True or False
Distinguish between any() and or
Use short-circuiting
