Here are the Pythonic learnings we spotted in Pull Requests made during the last week:
Learned about difflib SequenceMatcher and collections Counter. - PR
I finally worked with an API in python, I found little more information about working of unittests, got to know little more about CSV module. - PR
learned about the IP address lookup API - PR
I learn how to make http request to remote database (in this project used RIPE DB) and how to parse JSON output from DB - PR
Learned how to use PRAW module to interact with Reddit API. Managed to get the top topic submissions per valid subreddit topic. - PR
I learned how to use PyQt5, python GUI framework. I managed to get familiar on views events, especially on click. Also, managed to play with PyQt5.QtWebEngineWidgets to load a webpage of a given URL - PR
Gained more experience representing datetime objects as strings in the format I want them, used error handling to make my code more concise, and found the useful string method splitlines() which gives a list of all strings separated by newlines. I can easily insert an element into the list and then reform the list into file contents. This is much easier than parsing through a string of all the file contents to find a certain location. - PR
Nice one to get back into Pandas, this helped: https://pybit.es/guest-marvel-data-analysis.html - still some work to be done like merging countries and more plotting, but moving on for now. - PR
Definitely. Learned that I still have a lot to learn about Pandas :) - PR
The Git was the most challenging part - but good practice! I got a little distracted trying to solve new problems. - PR
