Learning-paths are a work in progress. Most things seem to work, but certain browsers, Internet Explorer in particular, may see a few blips, particularly with the Flash-players. Any problems and please send some feedback here.

Python for Strong Pythonistas

start

Aimed at Python Programmers who have strong experience, you probably want to know more about what's under the hood

goals

This series is tiny right now (only decorators) - please help us expand it

Background Material

You've already viewed the Python Programming for Intermediates series, haven't you?

Intermediate Python Programming

You will understand how to structure larger programs and you'll have some full examples to work through

We only have 1 series at the moment aimed at experienced Pythonistas - we'd love to have more!

We need more Python videos for Experienced Pythonistas

Experienced Pythonistas have little new meat in ShowMeDo, it would be great to have videos showing topics like the garbage collector, more on decorators, meta-programming, how the internals of Python's files are arranged, how the VM works, writing Python bytecode, optimising code, using Psyco/ShedSkin/PyPy.

Florian shows you decorators, a powerful technique for adding new functionality to existing method with a little sprinkling of magic.

Advanced Python

Advanced Python shows advanced Python techniques like decorators.

And Now...

To continue your education, take a look here:

Python 3.0 Introduction

You will have seen Python 3.0 in action and you'll know some of the key differences between 2.x and 3.0.

Scientific Python Programming

You'll know how to use Python for math and physics and you'll have tools that are similar to Matlab/Maple.

Python GUI Building

You'll know how to use wxPython, easyGui and PythonCard to build Graphical User Interfaces

Python IDEs and Tools

You will have an overview of the main Python IDEs and tools

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
