New Video Published: Using the IPython Library

Showmedo is proud to publish:[1406] Using the IPython Library, a video-tutorial by unpingco This video is part of the series Visual Parallel Computing Using Python-based VISION/HPC

This segment discusses the MEC and MECXLocal nodes in the IPython library to quickly prototype a parallel computation without having a prior connection to a backend cluster.

Visual Parallel Computing Using Python-based VISION/HPC

We may not know much about the future of computer programming, but one thing we do know is that it is parallel and the biggest challenge facing software programmers and hardware designers is how to exploit all those multiple cores out there.

So Unpingco’s new Python series is both fascinating and prescient. Oh and useful [...]

Photo-editing with GIMP

Rede’s wondeful series shows how to repair old photographs with the GIMP graphic-editor. Check it out even if you haven’t got any old photographs to repair – you’ll learn a whole lot of GIMP anyway. And the photos are lovely too

`[1399] Enhance A Framed Photo With GIMP Part 1‘, a video-tutorial by Rede, [...]

More C++ video-tutorials

Yiroel’s huge C++ beginners set continues to grow. This is a fantastic resource for starting programmers in what is a notoriously tricky language. Compared to a scripting language like Python, C++ makes much greater demands on the programmer, with a much more complex syntax and work-flow. So if you could do with a bit of [...]

Python Beginners – Club Collection Takes Shape

Have finally got round to giving the Club videos a bit of presentational structure following Ian’s last file I/O series in his huge Beginner Programming With Python.

Ian’s final series in Beginners brings the club total to 118 videos, 15 video-series and over 10 hours of Pythonic video demonstration <phew>.

Ian’s beginner-sets were conceived as a [...]

Scientific and Parallel Computing Using IPython

Wearing my research-scientist’s hat I can honestly assert that Python’s strength in scientific programming is one of its glories, and maybe less appreciated than it should be. That makes series like unpingo’s
Scientific and parallel computing using IPython pure gold for its target audience. Combining the power and flexibility of the enhanced IPython interpreter with some [...]

Incoming C++ Videos

We have a huge C++ series coming in, courtesy of antiRTFM – C++ Tutorials – Absolute noob Spoonfeed. As a C++ programmer from way back, it’s great to see these videos at Showmedo. Yisroel has really created something rather special, 30 videos which aim to gently lead you through the initial steps of what is [...]

Boa-Constructor (WxPython GUI-builder) Video Series

There are precious few open-source (OS) GUI builders of any repute but the lack is sorely felt in the WxPython world. WxGlade is a fine tool  if you like, as I do, it’s minimalist approach, but it is best for fairly small projects. When programming in the C++ WxWidgets I was impressed by the DialogBlocks [...]

Python 3 Videos

In a trickle sure to become a flood, we are starting to receive some videos demonstrating Python 3 and its differences from the 2.3–2.6 family. Exciting time for all Pythonistas, but it will take a while before Py3k is the first Python of choice. But watch these and the others to come if you want [...]

A Special Mention

Erik Thompson continues his huge series ‘Developing Emol’ which follows his creation of a 3D molecule viewer using Python and WxPython, the Python GUI-building library. Erik has really created something special here, and it’s my own personal favourite Showmedo series. He covers quite comprehansively the creation of a useful and very cool piece of software. [...]

New Videorama

Things are starting to settle with the new site and new-server teething problems, so some new video announcements are long overdue. I’ll deal here with the non-python contributions:

First up we have atlef’s videos, showing how to perform a minimal Ubuntu install.
Neil Dickenson continues his justifiably popular and really rather wonderful Introduction to Assembley Language.
Steve’s extends [...]

Python Beginners – Functions series finished for Club ShowMeDo

Python Beginners – Functions teaches you how to write and call your own functions in Python. We cover how to write functions, argument passing, scoping, gotchas and nested functions.

“I like the beginner videos, because you are confident on what the student must prepare to accept initially as dogma, and suggest to trust you for later [...]
