In this chapter, we've explored the built-in data types of Python. We've seen how many there are and how much can be achieved by just using them in different combinations.

We've presented simple examples, but there's much more that you can learn about this subject, so stick your nose into the official documentation and explore.

Most of all, I encourage you to try out all the exercises by yourself, get your fingers using that code, build some muscle memory, and experiment, experiment, experiment. Learn what happens when you divide by zero, when you combine different number types into a single expression, when you manage strings. Play with all data types. Exercise them, break them, discover...
