In this short screencast I show the use of the set() built-in function to create sets. Sets contain just one element of its properties, that is how it concentrates on the concept side and not on the quantity.

Could you start at level -2? I'm not up to level 0 yet. ie where does one place the program and how do to access the programs. etc.

ASSUME nothing for beginners.

I am just starting to learn Python and your videos are giving me a great feel for basic data structure. So far I am pretty clear on what a list is and what a set is. Thank you for your valued contribution. I can't wait to learn more!

Hi gasto,

i see your tutorial the first time. I'm looking the first time for python and i found your film very helpful. thanks !

I am actually leaving the comment done on 15 Octuber. It is hilarious! It is so sad though, that that person will probably never learn programming. Good luck to him selling burgers.

thank you for your time. It sparked my curiosity to know more about what can be done with sets.

Hi Sergio, welcome aboard.

This is not a ShowMeDo Club video series. Every Club series has 'Club' icon around the video.

Neither it is a sample of anything, it should be a complete series... over time. Offered to you for free.

Although if you are really interested in watching these free videos, consider joining the Club, as economy dictates that something that does not receive some kid of income is doomed to dissappear.

You might come from a myriad of sites which give you a 'taste' of what is to come if you subscribe. ShowMeDo does not follow that phylosophy. Free videos will remain free forever. You could make your own video tutorial about your area of expertise, and upload it here.


Ok now I've seen both first and second video, the primer one was, as you said, just a contact with things the language Python do.

But the second one, is also another contact !

I understood thar you are giving a taste proof, to get our attention and want to by your courses on video !

Ok ! Thats fine. But it would be more atractive for me, if you explicittly have said :

- We are offering you just a sample to make your mind to pay to see our curses on video !

too many mistakes while typing.. volume too low.

Appreciate your effort for making the video

Hey, thanks. I have recently taken up python with interest of making simple AIs and experimenting with genetic algorithms, just for personal pleasure as of now.

My only prior experience have been programing on my Casio calculator. Recently I have been imitaging codes others have done in order to get a feeling for the language, but since these examples did't have any explanations for the commands I used I was fubleing in the dark. Thank you very much, your tutorial really helped me to conect some dots.

Video published, thanks for contributing to ShowMeDo

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 gasto

The basics of Javascript.

Thank you very much for the video
