Introducing the Email Slicer Project: A Python Beginner's Guide

Welcome to my blog! In this first post, I'm excited to introduce you to a fun and educational Python project called the Email Slicer. Whether you're new to programming or looking to sharpen your skills, this project is a great way to dive into Python and learn how to manipulate strings and handle errors.

What is the Email Slicer Project?
The Email Slicer project is a simple Python script that extracts the username and domain name from an email address. It's a great exercise for beginners to practice string manipulation and error handling.

In this example, the user inputs the email address "". The email_slicer() function then splits the email address at the '@' symbol and extracts the username "john.doe" and the domain "". Finally, the program prints the extracted username and domain as output.

How Does it Work?
The script takes an email address as input, splits it into the username and domain using the split('@') method, and handles any errors that may occur if the email address is invalid.
