Any idea what *truthy* means?


#1

Seems like a dumb question, but it is important that we focus upon this concept when exploring the next question, which will come when this one is sorted out.


#2

Context?


#3

Opposite of falsy? :slight_smile:

If the context is programming then a truthy value is the value that will be treated as True (boolean) when used in the logical context.


#4

Precisely.

Anybody who is fairly well versed knows this, but new learners do not, and many have difficulty wrapping their heads around it. Hence, this discussion. I wanted to let others air their ideas on the subject.
