Python Terminology - introduction - [ID:695]

a series of video-tutorials by gasto

Python Terminology (bite-sized chunks). Is a series of videos that show specific terminology in bite-sized chunks.

Being a beginner, you might find yourself hindered to learn from articles and screencasts that already expect you to understand Python programming terminology. The tutor might use a word that might confuse you if you haven't heard it before. This video series helps in acquiring that programming terminology applicable to Python but also to other interpreted languages.

Video Tutorials

1. Python Terminology - introduction -

In this narration, I explain what to expect from the video series, and hopefully convince you of the importance of terminology when studying Python.

2. Python variables and values.

In this tutorial, I aim to teach absolute beginners the meaning of variables and values, how an expression can output a value in immediate mode of the interpreter without even using the print built-in function. The print built-in function ignores any quotation marks from a string argument.

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.
