Python variables

The Python ‘is’ Operator

The Python is operator determines whether two references (variables or literals) point to the same object in memory, i.e. whether they are the same object. The is operator is different from the equality operator ==, which checks whether the values of potentially two objects are equal.

Python Variables

Variables are a fundamental part of any programming language. They provide a way to store, access, and remember data for later use. You can think of variables as containers that store basic information of various types, such as numbers and text, or complex data structures that are composed of combinations of those.
