“”” my multi line comment “”” 3.Print: print(“%.2f”, total) -> will print total rounded to 2 decimal places. 4.Escape char: 'There\'s a snake in my boot!' Not required when using double quotes for string. 5.String: fifth_letter = "MONTY"[4] print fifth_letter => prints Y parrot = "Norwegian Blue" print len(parrot) print parrot.lower() print parrot.upper() pi = 3.14 print str(pi) => str() converts non-strings to string Methods that use dot notation only work with strings. On the other hand,len()andstr()can work on other data types. print "Spam " + "and " + "eggs" print "The value of pi is around " + str(3.14) string_1 = "Camelot" string_2 = "place"

WebLogic Administration: WLS Scripting Tool (WLST) Tutorial

Book Review: Pro Git

Very nicely explained and author has a sound understanding of the fundamentals of the Git version control system is evident from his writing. I did not need to buy the dead tree version of the book since the ebook for my kindle was available for free. It delves into the basic topics first so that if you have read the first 4 chapters, then that knowledge will be sufficient to get you to start using git on a day 2 day basis. The remaining chapters can be browsed over and read on an as needed basis. Since the book is available in several formats it is very easy to access it at work on a PC and at home on my kindle. Scott Chacon has done an excellent job explaining Git concepts very clearly and the illustrations in the book are also very well done and aid in the understanding of the text and the subject matter. Highly recommended.

Book Review: The Complete Tales of Winnie The Pooh by A.A.Milne

The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read it to my about-to-be 7 years old son, who generally likes science fiction chapter books to be read to him, but for a change, one day picked up this book and to my surprise we read chapter after chapter for a few days in succession during bed time. He was particularly delighted by the humor in the book and it was a great fun reading him this classic by A.A.Milne. Christopher Robin in the stories is author's son and author is narrating the stories as if he is reading it to his son and then at times he will come out of the hundred acre woods to the real world and respond to his son's questions. Most children who have watched disney's rendition of Pooh's world already will be familiar with the characters in the stories - from Pooh, to piglet, to owl, eeyore, rabbit, kanga, roo and tigger. The book and its prose may be more suited to a child 5yrs and above as then they will be able to…
