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.
(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To
report any problems viewing the videos please

As organization for the next PyCon2008 US ramps up, we decided to move off of PMWiki (a PHP based system) and go 100% Django, or 100% python at least. We still wanted a way to edit content online, including the site navigation, but found the existing Django flatpages to be lacking. We also wanted to use ReStructuredText. The end result is a new Wiki system in Django based on flatpages and ReStructuredText.
This is a shallow dive into this new system, it's features, and how to customize it.
The source code is licensed under the Python 2.5 License and owned by the PSF (same as the python core library).
There is a new PyCon-Tech website for management of the project. Stop by and file a bug!
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.
