Kudos and Thanks for Jerol
Thank you for this video.
Thanks, I found you explanation of what an object *is* very helpful, particularly having read the effbot.com link before watching the video. I'm the sort of person who reads "everything is an object" and will stop reading until I've reached a temporary conception of what that means. So I really appreciate your clear reiteration that names (ie labels) are not objects but point to objects and that uniqueness of an object can be checked by using the id() function. You even thought ahead to show that the actual object (e.g. "a literal string") takes the method, not the name; a query I had when I read my first python web intro. Oh, and sneaking iPython in was clever too. Probably better than just making an iPython video.
Very useful for new ipython user.Thank you
Makes me appreciate python even more.
Very informative! I've been looking for general basic information about Ipython and this video delivered.
objx.py is just a script that contains objects such as classes. I use it with the IPython "run" command to load the script in order to demonstrate different qualities of Python's classes. I use IPython all the time with tiny code fragments to test ideas or to clarify points of confusion.
If you are learning the language, I suggest running a Python-aware editor, IPython, and the script in the same directory. Then you can just toggle between IPython and the editor. This is what I do in the tutorial, and what I do for most of my personal programming.
Thank you for your comments.
Noticed the videos were made back in 2006. I just started with Py coming out of Java and was confused but the videos helped 99%. Rating = Excellent. The 1% was the loading of "run objx.py". Is objx.py a class with inner classes in it or just a holder?
Very good and easy to understand, but you need to go a bit faster.
A very good explanation!!
I learned you can call a method from the class rather than an instance, thanks.
I have not looked at IPython for quite a while, I will now have to try it out again.
Best discussion of objects I've ever seen!!!!!
thank you, it was very helpful
great way to illustrate inheritance in python
