Keeping in Touch Python Series [ID:117]

a series of video-tutorials by Jeff Rush

The Python community is a busy community, with people activities and coding developments everywhere. This series surveys techniques and resources to help you stay current and find what you need to make the best use of Python.

Video Tutorials

1. Watching the RSS Feeds

Come along as we take a look at the variety of Python-related RSS feeds available to help you stay up to date, and how you can easily click-to-add them to your browser as live bookmarks by visiting www.python.org.

2. Searching the Python World

A 7-minute screencast introducing the available search filters, based on the OpenSearch standard, on the Python website, and how you can simply click to add them to your browser, either Firefox or Internet Explorer 7. We then examine briefly the seven filters and what kind of information each is useful for.

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 Jeff
