Another good intro video tutorial showing basic functions of the Wing IDE which I'm considering purchasing.

Useful. It seems more simplier than Eclipse. Where can I learn techniques of debugging?

Thank You for telling

Very short, quick and good introduction. Go straight to the main points. Thanks.

This is excellent man! Great work, Thanks so much! I'm new to Python and new to programming. This IDE out shines the rest.

If you any helpful hints to the beginner I'd appreciate any input.

Have a good New Year!

Great and well explained in short time!

Well done!

Its great.I was unaware of you website. I just bookmarked it ; I intend to return and learn more.

Excellent video, very clear and instructive. I've been using Wing for a few weeks now, and this video showed me some aspects that I hadn't come across, so very useful. Thanks !!

Excellent demo. I am a closer to purchasing a license for this software however I am not convinced yet. This presentation should be a few minutes longer. Show us how to import modules and how Wing IDE saves python based projects.

Watched the Wing IDE Pro video, and was pleased with the potential for mastering Python at last. I'm a long time programmer, and systems engineer who has been very frustrated while trying to learn Python. All of the literature, and development software seems to be created by a clique of individuals who are reluctant to reveal any of their secrets -- or so has been my experience. There is an attitude that the "Hello World" program is a perfunctory waste of time, which has thus far incapacitated my learning efforts. Active State/Komodo has received my money on two occasions without my being to set it up for use. Now they want me to upgrade again. I understand the Python language, and both object and procedural oriented software design, but haven't had the experience with Python's implementation to properly install it, along with the Python modules, and achieve intercommunication between them. Perhaps I will learn what I need from your practical videos. The timing of this evaluation is awkward however, occurring before any experience with the other videos has occurred. This video was very well done. Thanks!

u do a gr8 job!


I use Wingware 101 and I will add Pydev+Eclipse for a while. Why I do this is That I2m waiting for Netbeans to full support Python. Alley and the team are busy coding for the support. Now IDE Supports a little of Py in Ver 6.1 and 6.5 Beta but I think in End of this year or so They will have achieved great!

NB is great IDE for Java, PHP, Ruby, Ruby on Rails C/C++, ..... and Now it will support Python. I would like to encourage Experienced programmers to join them in bringing the support earlier. Since IDE Support is coming, IMO ShowMeDo need to get ready for videos for this great IDE!

Wingware is great tool but If Netbeans be like it then for free, that will be greater!

Just my 2 cents

Jshack - good point! Stephan (of Wing) announced this recently. It is aimed at beginner coders, the IDE is free and it is a cut-down version of the Professional IDE.

You can see it as the third item in Wing's product list:

There is a screenshot here:

and a feature list:


Wing is offering a free beginner version of their ide. Wing-101 is a beta version and is available for download on all platforms. It is meant to help beginning python coders understand their code and the ide.

Note that Wing IDE also provides a tutorial in the Help menu, although that is aimed more at teaching the IDE's features than teaching about Python.

Hi Jovan. For introductory code you should see the introductions at the <a href="">Python Documentation</a> pages. They should set you on the right path!

hello.. thanks for the free download.. would you please send me some simple application on the phyton language.. thanks a lot hoping for your reply...

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 Ian
