This is the biggest Python cheat sheet

Welcome back! After scrolling through Reddit for endless hours I stumbled across a post mentioning a huge cheat sheet for Python, as a Python coder myself I was intrigued so I clicked on it and without a doubt, this is a very robust cheat sheet, let’s get into it!

The Sheet

Without boring you for another few minutes let me just link to the actual cheat sheet here:

Now this is a Github “project”, but you don’t really have to download anything, all of the information on the page is listed as a document of the page:

Now im not going to regurgitate what’s on this page, I will tell you though that there is a lot of value in this specific page. This guide essentially breaks down Collections Types, Syntax, System commands, Data Types, Advanced commands and different Libraries for Python as well.

I will tell you that if you plan on learning Python straight from this sheet it’s probably not a good idea. This is not a tutorial, you will not learn Python from scratch from any cheat sheets, it’s more so just a check list, but these are still extremely important tools to use before interviewing, which reminds me:

Story Time

This is just a quick story that i’m sure no one cares about but: a few years ago I got my first full time job, this position required experience with R, at that time I had used R for a summer class in college, other than that never really used it again. When I was waiting for the actual interview in the waiting area I looked over the job requirements and read it required experience with R, at that moment I didn’t really remember much with that language, I quickly searched for a cheat sheet for R and read that through several times until my interviewers were ready. Once in the interview I pretty much just stated everything that was in the cheat sheet, luckily for me the interviewers weren’t extremely technical and I landed my first job as a Data Analyst. This specific situation is definitely not something I would recommend anyone to go through but a cheat sheet can definitely help you prepare for the most important concepts of an interview.

I would pretty much recommend everyone to take a look at this cheat sheet, it goes through a lot of the basics that are pretty much a requirement to know. Whether you plan on going into software engineering, data science or anything else, learning these concepts will be the fundamental building blocks for your programs.
