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.

Scientific Python Programming

start

You know basic Python and have an interest in scientific coding.

goals

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

Background

Beginner Python Programming

How to read and write simply Python programs and running them

Python GUI Building

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

Math in Python

First, Kirby introduces a series that shows you various interesting math tools in Python.

Python for Math Teachers

These videos take a math through programming approach, meaning we're using Python to develop a stronger grasp of mathematical concepts.

Second, Erik shows you all the steps in a very thorough series to build a molecular visualisation tool using wxPython and opengl.

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 [...]

Scientific Packages

Erik's series on VPython introduces you to the world of visual physics simulation, interactively, with Python.

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.

Next unpingco shows you how to use the SAGE scientific computing environment and gives you a taster to the visual computing system VISION.

Scientific Computing Using SAGE

SAGE is an open-source project to integrate the best open-source scientific packages under an interactive environment. SAGE aims to provide an open-source alternative to commercial packages such as MATLAB and Mathematica. This tutorial series covers how to use SAGE for a variety of problems.

Python Visual Computing Using VISION

VISION is a freely available tool from the Scripps Research Institute written entirely in Python that makes it easy to build operations by drawing flowcharts instead of writing code.

This work is good i like it and so do others,actually we are also under the same business that is 3D Animation Services

url:http://cattechnologies.com/3DDevelopment.aspx

please do have a look.

Thank you, Ian! My area is GIS, this is going to be worth every penny of my club membership. I am happy to support this effort.

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.
