List comprehensions are pretty normal for some pure-functional languages, like Haskell, but they're rare (and thus feel "advanced") for coders more familiar with, say, C++ or Java.
(The snark definitely wasn't called for.)
Agreed! But, there's more to my example than just a list comprehension.
Oh, definitely. I think that one would actually make a few of my Python colleagues cringe, with the walrus operator being in it like that...but then, the walrus is controversial to begin with!
For sure! I was wondering why they would include the feature because I feel like it goes against Python's design a little bit. For one, it's an expression and a statement which makes it a little ambiguous. Of course, I'm glad that they used a different operator for it.
That said, I just found a really nice example (source):
while chunk := file.read(8192):
Now, that's clean!
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
