I explain list mutability, what being ordered means, the membership operator, slicing and striding and some fairly complex examples of creating lists using list comprehension.

Helped me to understand lists better, and what I could do with them. Basic. And it was what I was looking for.

Thanks for the video, very informative about lists and how to manipulate them in the beginning.

Great tutorial, very simple but yet informative. Thank you.

Not bad for beginners, but it would be improved for the slicing and striding demo if the list had not been [0, 1, 2, ..., 19] but rather [50, 51, . . . , 69]


More like this please!

interest and good info on lists

excellent tutorial. i gain a lot because these simple examples are so easy to add on to.

thanks gasto. i realized my mistake after filming. it was my first video, so i was a bit nervous.

Good tutorial for beginners. Only mistake I found is when explaining:

[x**2 for x in l if x%2]

It had to be:

"... all even numbers divided by 2 will have a remainder of 0"

very nice little demonstration! And sorry for the publishing delay. A clear, well conceived screencast that gives a real hint of Python's power. I think I'm right in pointing out that all the demonstrated manipulations are applicable to Python 2.5. Probably worth pointing out in the text-intro. I'll add this to our blog rollcall soon as the new site is up.

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.
