1. Learn Django: Create a Wiki in 20 minutes

In this tutorial, I introduce the basics of Django by walking you through the development of a simple wiki application. We'll see how you can design your URLs, interact with the database and use the Django template library. As an added bonus, we'll also include support for editing pages using Markdown syntax [ http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/ ]. By the end, you'll see how little time [...]

2. Learn Django: Extending the wiki with wikiwords and search

This is the second part of the Learn Django series. In this part, we'll extend the Wiki app from part 1 [View part 1 here if you haven't already]. We are going to add support for a menu and auto linking of wikiwords.In the process we will look at template inheritance, filters and custom filter libraries. Finally, we'll see how to implement a search feature in under 20 lines of code using Django's [...]

3. Learn Django: Adding tags to the wiki

Following on from the previous two screencasts, we add the ability to create and edit tags for wiki pages. In the process, we'll see how to create relations between Django model objects using the ManyToManyField. With a few lines of code, and thirty minutes of time, we'll have a wiki with tags.

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 Siddhi
