## Python: Tips of the Day

Python: Convert byte to a string?

You need to decode the bytes object to produce a string:

```>>> b"abcde"
b'abcde'

# utf-8 is used here because it is a very common encoding, but you
# need to use the encoding your data is actually in.
>>> b"abcde".decode("utf-8")
'abcde'
```
