To increase your chance of getting a high quality answer, you want to focus on asking a high quality question. Before we dive into the tips, let’s think of a hypothetical situation so that we can create an example question.
When you ran the following code:
print(sum([1, 2, 3]))
You received the following error:
TypeErrorTraceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-1-96fd51102535> in <module>() ----> 1 print(sum([1, 2, 3])) TypeError: 'int' object is not callable
The magnifying glass in the upper-right corner is the perfect place to start. If you find things that are related to your question but don’t fully answer it, it will be helpful to link to those questions to give as much context as possible to other community members.
If you are unable to find a solution from the search result, then it’s time to create a post.
Pro Tip: Google-Fu is an incredible skill to learn for a future data scientist like you.
What details need to be included for you to sum up your issue in one sentence?
TypeError: 'int' object is not callable - Can't identify the redefined function name
Example: I am getting
TypeError: 'int' object is not callable. Based on this article, we can fix it by running
del followed by the function name. However, when I attempted to do it with my code, I am getting the same error. I don’t know how to fix it.
Here is the code that I have used:
print(sum([1, 2, 3]))
And here is my attempt at doing what is mentioned in this article:
del print print(sum([1, 2, 3]))
This is incredibly important and helps bring context to the issue or question.
Markdown is a very handy syntax to learn. It’s catching up a lot of traction and more and more forums are implementing this. Therefore, it would help you not only in this community but also with other forums on the internet. If you are unfamiliar with Markdown, I would recommend you this cool interactive markdown tutorial. Or if you just need a refresher, check out this article.
Please always copy and paste these into the question, and then use Markdown to style!
Note: Those are not single quotes
''', they are backticks
```. (You can find it on the left side of Number Key 1 in most English keyboard layouts)
Don’t run as soon as you’ve posted, in case there are clarifications needed.
Stack Overflow has a great, comprehensive article on asking a good question, complete with examples.
To conclude, this is how our hypothetical question will look like:
