How to create methods in Python• 1 min
Python will allow you to create your own methods.
What I mean by methods are pieces of code that you can re-use multiple times.
You will define it once within your main script and will be able run it multiple times, with different parameters.

A real life situation
So imagine you are working on a project that requires you to list the csv files contained in a specific folder. (e.g. sales of your e-commerce that has been splitted in files per month) see below.
current_dir/ ├── my_script.py └── data ├── january.csv └── february.csv
Here you are !
You can now reuse this method in other projects without running into problems.
