Python built-ins worth learning
"There are dozens of built-in functions and classes, hundreds of tools bundled in Python’s standard library, and thousands of third-party libraries on PyPI. There’s no way anyone could ever memorize all of these things.

I recommend triaging your knowledge:

1: Things I should memorize such that I know them well
2: Things I should know about so I can look them up more effectively later
3: Things I shouldn’t bother with at all until/unless I need them one day"
