This Python One-Liner is part of my Python One-Liners book with NoStarch Press.
Here’s the code from the video:
letters_amazon = ''' We spent several years building our own database engine, Amazon Aurora, a fully-managed MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible service with the same or better durability and availability as the commercial engines, but at one-tenth of the cost. We were not surprised when this worked. ''' find = lambda x, q: x[x.find(q)-18:x.find(q)+18] if q in x else -1 print(find(letters_amazon, 'SQL'))
