(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

Angela shows how to program very simple graphics using the python module xturtle.

Using a for loop looping through a list created with the range function, Angela let the xturtle move forward


and turn left


If you have troubles installing the xturtle module, you can use the turtle module instead. In this case, use turtle.forward(distance) and turtle.left(angle) instead of the xturtle commands.

The whole python script can be found in the showmedo wiki

Angela is a student of the evangelische Hauptschule Karlsplatz in Vienna (Austria)

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.



Showmedo's development is fairly rapid and bugs will inevitably creep in. If you have any problems please drop us a line using the contact address below. Likewise, any suggestions for improvements to the site are gratefully received.
