Welcome back to our Python for DevOps series! In today's installment, we'll explore the power of conditional statements—
else. Understanding these statements is crucial for incorporating decision-making logic into your DevOps scripts.
🔶Conditional Statements in Python
🔶 What are Conditional Statements?
Conditional statements allow your script to make decisions based on specified conditions. They enable the execution of different code blocks depending on whether certain conditions are true or false.
🔶 Syntax of Conditional Statements
if the statement checks a specified condition. If the condition is true, the indented code block underneath it is executed.
if condition: # Code block to execute if the condition is true
elif (else if) statement allows you to check multiple conditions if the initial
if the statement is false.
if condition: # Code block to execute if the condition is true elif another_condition: # Code block to execute if the "elif" condition is true
else statement is used to define a block of code that will be executed if none of the conditions specified in the
elif statements are true.
if condition: # Code block to execute if the condition is true elif another_condition: # Code block to execute if the "elif" condition is true else: # Code block to execute if none of the conditions are true
🔶 Practice Exercises and Examples
Example: Conditional Handling in a DevOps Script
import sys type = sys.argv if type == "Chandresh": print("Welcome back to Python for devops , Mr. Chandresh Patle") elif type == "Harish": print("Hello Harish, how are you?") elif type == "Anshika": print("Hello Anshika, how are you?") else: print("Please provide a valid name")
Conditional statements are fundamental for creating dynamic and responsive DevOps scripts. They empower your scripts to adapt and respond intelligently to different scenarios. Stay tuned for Day 8, where we'll delve into Lists in Python for DevOps.
