Exercism Python Track

                          Discourse topics   Exercism_II   Exercism_III   Build Status

Hi.  👋🏽  👋  We are happy you are here.  🎉 🌟

exercism/Python is one of many programming language tracks on exercism(dot)org. This repo holds all the instructions, tests, code, & support files for Python exercises currently under development or implemented & available for students.

🌟   Track exercises support Python 3.7 - 3.11.2. Exceptions to this support are noted where they occur.
🌟   Track tooling (test-runner, representer, analyzer, and Continuous Integration) runs on Python 3.11.2.

Exercises are grouped into concept exercises which teach the Python syllabus, and practice exercises, which are unlocked by progressing in the syllabus tree  🌴 . Concept exercises are constrained to a small set of language or syntax features. Practice exercises are open-ended, and can be used to practice concepts learned, try out new techniques, and play. These two exercise groupings can be found in the track config.json, and under the python/exercises directory.
