Is there any significant difference between the two python keywords continue and pass like in the examples

for element in some_list: 

if not element:

pass

and

for element in some_list:

if not element:

continue

I should be aware of?

Yes, there is a difference. continue forces the loop to start at the next iteration while pass means "there is no code to execute here" and will continue through the remainder or the loop body.

You can run the below-mentioned code and see the difference:-

for element in some_list:

if not element:

pass

print 1

for element in some_list:

if not element:

continue

print 1
