Language overview [ID:691] (2/6)

in series: Starting with Python

video tutorial by Ian Ozsvald, added 05/08

Series ID: 253 Video ID: 691

Python is an agile, very high-level language. Perl and Ruby programmers will feel at home with Python, programmers with experience in languages like C and Java will need a little time to adjust.

Wikipedia has more about Python. The language was created by Guido van Rossum in 1991, it is strongly supported by a very large community and is continuously being improved. It is an ideal programming language for beginners.

From May ShowMeDo will carry absolute-beginner Python tutorials in Club ShowMeDo, these are in addition to our regular intermediate-level Python screencasts. We also have a lot of free beginner-focused Python screencasts.

Python.org has the official Python Tutorial and a good Beginners Guide.

I would like to see a video concerning the use of Python with OpenOffice.

For instance, how to create and add a simple macro written in Python in OpenOffice Calc or Writer.

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 Ian
