What is the lambda function for?

Hi everyone. I recently learned in Python classes at a university what a lambda function is. But I don’t realise what it is used for? Where do I need it?

You can use it to shorten code if you need a function only once and you will never use it again. Function should be simple enough, otherwise it’s still better to define it separately.

It is convenient to pass a lambda function as an argument to another function, for example map or filter.
