Agile Development Tools in Python [ID:291]

a series of video-tutorials by percious

Python has a number of very useful tools to help with agile development. Here are just a few screencasts that show how to use them.

Video Tutorials

1. Using Virtualenv and PasteScript

Here I go through how to create a virtual environment, and create a package for development.

2. Using Nosetests and Coverage to create robust software

Here I take a sample application and show how you can test it using nosetests. I also go into detail about code coverage, and show a working example.

3. Using Sphinx and Doctests to provide robust documentation

Sphinx is a fairly new package that people have been using to document their packages. Even the newest Python 2.6 documentation has been converted to sphinx. This demo shows how you can use sphinx to document your own program.

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 percious
