Draft ‘Starting with Python’ guide in ShowMeDo

For a while I’ve been mulling adding text-only tutorials to ShowMeDo – basically a regular video page sans the video-box. By adding Guides we can write short tutorials which help to connect our video series together and also link to external tutorials.

The first Guide is Starting with Python:

Each of these entries are rather short – just several paragraphs linking to local screencasts and external tutorials. I’ll expand them as I receive feedback.

What’s interesting having written this first is just how obvious it is that many of our videos show you how to use specific tools…and so few teach you how to program.

Kyran and I had already decided to focus on teaching Python beginner programming in Club ShowMeDo, I’m about to start preparing my first absolute-beginner series next week. Hopefully we can quickly address this gaping hole in our collection!
