Python Card First Run... My machine IBM t41 512 RAM My experience in programming: nominal

I chose PythonCard as my starter application because a)python is very powerful and very portible b)it's easy to read c)lots of support d)produces GUI interfaces

I needed something that would give me a taste of how easy/difficult it would be to create my own stand alone application and PythonCard rose to the top of all of my criteria.

Nice, but a bit too basic for me :-)

Anyway, if everything is explained so well, I think I will learn a lot.

Thx for the tutorial!

Dennis - just to let you know I have linked to your videos from within the wiki:

Hi, do you know the differences of slash and backslash? :-p

Hi Dennis. I have added a link to your series to the wxPython wiki's PythonCard page:

and I have also mailed one of the developers (Kevin) to see if we can get it linked to the PythonCard homepage.

Thanks man, keep up the good work!

Thanks Ian for your help and your patience!

Hi Dennis. Just a quick comment to say Thanks for producing this series. I've been planning to learn PythonCard for ages - now I have the material I need to get started.

I'll comment more when I've had time to take a look and try out your videos with some running code.



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.
