Welcome to Pylenin Weekly #8, a newsletter dedicated to improving the lives of my fellow peers through knowledge sharing. This week, I have focused on finishing some of the important articles related to loops in Python.
Learn to perform iterations until a condition holds True in Python using while loops with examples.

Learn to use break, continue and pass statements inside loops in Python with examples.
"The whole process wasn't very clear to me after reading AWS doc. The video demonstrated that in a very simple way. It helped me a lot- Thank you!"
The above comment was given by one of my followers in the AWS Lambda deployment package video. Arguably, one of the most popular videos I have created on Youtube!. You can check out the video here.
"Thank you, your explanation was clear. I like how you structured this!"
The above comment was posted on Python Class and Class Attributes video. Even though I never use Object Oriented Programming language, it was fun to learn the concept and talk about it. You can check out the video here.
Top git commands for developers
A lot of you must be already working with Git. So I decided to share some git commands that I use regularly. Let me know which ones you don't use by throwing me a tweet!
Configures a directory with the name and email address that will be used with your commits.
# Name git config --global user.name "<Your-Full-Name>" # email git config --global user.email "<your-email-address>"
Use this command to create a new git repository. It handles the initial setup necessary to deal with git.
To start working on any project that is available on Github or Gitlab, you need to clone it first to your local environment. Use the above command and pass the repository URL as the argument.
git clone https://github.com/<repo-url>
Which files to add to staging, which files are untracked and which files are ready to commit, you can get information for all the above states through the git status command. I use this very frequently.
To add files to staging and get them ready for commit, use this command.
To add all the files, use
git add ..
To add a single file, use
git add <filename>
When you are sure of your changes, you will commit your changes with a log message.
git commit -m "<log message>"
To push your content from local to a remote repository, use this command. This will create a Pull Request.
To switch to a different working branch or create a new working branch, I use this command.
To create and switch to a new branch -
git checkout -b <branch-name>.
To only switch to an existing branch -
git checkout <branch-name>.
If multiple people are working on a project, you would want to update your local repository with the changes introduced by your colleagues. To fetch and integrate those changes to your local repository, use this command.
