Showmedo is financed by a subscription club, membership of which grants access to all of our 160+ specially produced videos. These include our 50 video introduction to Python programming, and our recently completed Open-office migration collection.

This video covers the very basics of assembly language, just enough to write a simple loop that fills an image with colour.
It is quite lengthy because a lot of information is needed to get started and understand what's going on. The basic data types and the parts of a line of code are shown. Then the instructions mov, add, and briefly cmp and jne are explained. Addressing is covered, and then the coding begins.
Are you learning Python? To keep the site running clean and ad-free we've started Club ShowMeDo. The club will allow you access to some special videos we're making to pass on programming skills we consider important to the development and enjoyment of Free Open Source Software (FOSS).
The focus at the moment is on developing with the Python programming language, one of the backbones of the FOSS movement with a huge number of included and third-party libraries.
We welcome feedback and we want to hear your ideas.
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.
