Thank you for your demos - I am a longtime java developer who is just now taking the python plunge. Thanks again


Thanks, that was most informative.

Very useful videos to get working fast with Python.

I just looked at the first video to be sure it was working and will now look at the other ones to try my hand at using it.


Good install demo

Concise and clear!, nothing better can be say about this video

Hi. I tried installing the wxpython 2.6 module using pyhton 3.1.2 but it says the module is not found in the directory, since there was no python 2.6 found on c:/. Can someone out there please help me, pretty please. Thank you.

thanks, it was great!

Really helpful, but video takes a wee bit more time than it needs to.

excellent presentation.

there seems to be two versions of Python to be involved in your downloads (v4 and v6)?

I retired as a researcher in mechanics of GPS orbits two

years ago. And I am beginning to use your series as

a way to learn wxPython in allowing for a user to inject

'common sense' into semi-automated translation.

Reasonably informitive.

An excellent tutorial, thank you very much. Would be nice if somebody did one on Python Threads (personal interest :) )

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 Kyran
