Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll utilize Python dictionaries to efficiently combine a file of product info and a file of sales entries. You’ll take on the role of a data engineer in a company that has been modernizing its sales systems, and tackle a common data merging task to help generate useful reports. Solve the challenges of this project, and you’ll understand the real power and flexibility of dictionaries and how they are used literally everywhere in Python.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
