Advanced Python [ID:337]

a series of video-tutorials by Florian Mayer

Advanced Python shows advanced Python techniques like decorators.

Video Tutorials

1. Decorators: The Basics

This video is going to show you the basics of decorators. A decorator is used to alter the docstring of a function.

2. Decorators: Real World Example

This second video about decorators is going to show you a real-world example on how they can be used. A decorator is marking functions as deprecated. Sorry for the abrupt end, though I went on just trying to find out how to enable line-numbers. And yes, the line-number is right.

3. Decorators: Introducing functools.wraps

functools.wraps is a function that allows you to take over the docstring and the name of another function when you make a decorator return another function than the one it takes.

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.

Kudos and Thanks for Florian
