Python Tip

Use * to send lists and dictionaries as positional and keyword arguments when calling a function

total = sum(*list_of_small_nums, *list_of_large_nums)
# total == 66

Python 3.5+ allows passing multiple sets of keyword arguments (kwargs) to a function in a single call

def sum(*args):
    total = 0
    for arg in args:
        total += arg
    return total

list_of_small_nums = [1, 2, 3]
total = sum(*list_of_small_nums)
# total == 6

list_of_large_nums = [10, 11, 12, 13, 14]
total = sum(*list_of_large_nums)
# total == 60
