Writing your first program [ID:695] (3/6)

in series: Starting with Python

video tutorial by Ian Ozsvald, added 05/08

Series ID: 253 Video ID: 695

ShowMeDo has many example videos which will show you how to write Python code. Our beginner Python section lists many screencasts which will help you.

Erik has an excellent long series which walks you through writing a 3D molecule viewer from first-principles. The series is called developing emol!.

Lucas and Marius have two German series which teach basic Python programming and show many of the underlying concepts:

Horst has several screencasts on Beginning Python (Russian) and writing simple Turtle programs with xturtle.

Jeff Rush has an excellent pair of source-code walk-through videos. By watching these you'll get insights into how an experienced programmer writes Python code.

In our Club we have two series which are aimed at new Python programmers, both series take you through writing a first Python program:

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
