So, which topics do our visitors find most interesting? I have analysed our logs and compiled some stats, ranked roughly by most-recent-first.
For the latest ShowMeDos the total number of downloads are:
- RUR-PLE – 181
- PyDev (2 videos) – 1591
- nosey Python testing – 230
- pyWinAuto – 559
- Java/Eclipse (4 videos) – 159
- Intro to Python Objects (3 videos) – 1436
The Java/Eclipse videos aren’t receiving much attention as I don’t know where to publicise them! Can you help?
For our older ShowMeDos:
- IPython (4 videos) – 8782
- SPE (2 videos) – 3692
- wxPython (5 videos) – 5171
- Starting with Python (3 videos) – 1453
- CamStudio (2 videos) – 650
As a general trend, videos covering ‘how to get started’ with a tool are particularly popular – watching a ShowMeDo beats reading a manual when you are impatient to get started!
Jerol’s Introduction to Python Objects also shows that people are interested in learning about harder topics – again watching a video is easier than reading a book, and learning directly from somebody else’s hard-won experience is a great way to learn.
What would we like to see more of? Simple – ShowMeDos that show us how to quickly get started using a tool (IDEs like PyDev, APIs like pyWinAuto with Win32) and ShowMeDos distilled from an experienced person’s knowledge (like Jerol’s Introduction to Objects).
If you are interested in sharing a quick-start guide to a tool or helping those who could benefit from your hard-won experience then please get in contact and we’ll tell you just how easy it is!If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed!
