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.

Full Projects in Python

start

You know how to write some Python and you want to work through some full programs.

goals

You will have learned how to write several complete applications including an image viewer (wxPython), a molecule viewer (wxPython, opengl) and a CGI-based wiki webapp.

Background

The assumption is that you've worked through the beginner and intermediate Python learning paths so you already know how to write your own programs

Beginner Python Programming

How to read and write simply Python programs and running them

Intermediate Python Programming

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

GUI-based full programs

Writing an application that uses a graphical interface is a common task, it is also non-trivial. Here two authors show you the wxPython GUI toolkit and use it to create full applications.

Erik's series is very long and completely free - it is an excellent guide to building up a program from first principles.

Developing emol!

This video series will document the development of a moderately complex program from start to finish. Everything from planning, creating class diagrams, going over the code, and creating a .deb file for Ubuntu/Debian distribution will be covered. Key libraries used will be wxPython, OpenGL, and sqlite. Most software projects fail. Will this one fail too?! Watch this series as it is published to [...]

Build a wxPython Image Viewer

Want to learn wxPython? Want a fully-worked example which leads you through to a working program? Want some exercises (with solutions!) which test your growing knowledge? Here we build a wxPython-based Image Viewer and at the end of the series you'll be able to build your own wxPython applications. This series is aimed at Python programmers who have a little Python experience and no wxPython e [...]

Erik has a second great tutorial on using VPython, a graphical physics toolkit, and he builds up some fun physics lessons.

VPython - Physics and 3D in Python

Interested in 3D programming, physics and Python? Erik Thomspon introduces 3D programming using the VPython toolkit covering a number of subjects including gravity, friction, and tension demonstrating falling balls, weights, wind and satellites.

Web-app full programs

John's series shows you how to construct a simple Python-based wiki that is accessible over the Internet. This introduces the basics of web-app programming (which will help if you're going to learn Django/Pylons/TurboGears) and shows you a third author's approach to constructing a useful program.

Introduction to Python web-programming: CGI

CGI (Common Gateway Interface) is one of the simplest ways to start writing dynamic web applications. It is viewed as quite an old way to write web applications, but it does not require the understanding of too many different technologies. It's therefore perfect for writing small one-shot web scripts that are essentially web front-ends to shell scripts. Despite being an old technology CGI is st [...]

Siddhi has a very-well received series in which he builds a full wiki using Django over the course of an hour. If you want to learn Django, definitely watch this.

Learn Django: Create a Wiki in 20 minutes

Learn Django shows how easily and quickly you can get a web application up and running with Django. In the process we'll introduce the basics of Django so that you can get started out with your own application.

dear sir,

I would appreciate if a python tutorial for solving sudoku puzzles are provided. First the representation of the puzzle in ---(i) list form or matrix form (ii) dictionary form (iii) set form or any other. then the algorithm as to how to scan each cell and fill it with the possible values and then recursively reduce to a single value.

I have been trying it but am unable to solve it.

thanks

sincerely

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.
