Convert First Character of String into Uppercase in Python

You can convert the first character into uppercase through capitalize() method. To use the capitalize() method you need to create a variable for storing string value and then access through dot notation.

Look at the example below in which we have a string containing lowercase values. Let’s convert the first character of the below string into uppercase.

favouriteLanguage = "python is my favorite programming language."
convertedString = favouriteLanguage.capitalize()
# Output: Python is my favorite programming language.

In this example, we have a string stored into variable favouriteLanguage. Here python attaches built-in function with favouriteLanguage variable and capitalize() method is one of them. So we can access the capitalize() method through a dot that converts the first character into uppercase. That’s why we got Capital P in the output along with the string.
