Deploying code to production can be filled with uncertainty. Reduce the risks, and deploy earlier and more often. Download this free guide to learn more. Brought to you in partnership with Rollbar.

Never forget, Python uses duck typing and has typed objects but untyped variable names.

lfc = "Liverpool" # this is a string
manc = "Manchester City"
l_score = 3 # this is a integer
m_score = 0
print "Result",lfc,l_score,"-",m_score,manc
Result Liverpool 1 - 0 Manchester City

How to know the type of variables:

type(lfc)
<type 'str'="">
type(l_score)
<type 'int'="">
