Very helpful and encouraging - thank you. I found it easy to copy the steps as I watched.


how to go around the lack of libraries for animation for windows users?


Good introduction for a total newbe like myself !

Would love to get more overview about what the code is doing e.g. what kind of objects need to be created, how to set axis range etc.

thanks !

very helpful, the video just broke the ice between matplotlib and me, which I had tried to do previously without much success. many thanks.


OK


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

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 unpingco
