I’m delighted to announce that I’ve completed a screencast for every single one of the 50 exercises in my ebook, “Practice Makes Python.” This is more than 300 minutes (5 hours!) of Python instruction, helping you to become a more expert Python programmer.
Each screencast consists of me solving one of the exercises in real-time, describing what I’m doing and what I’m doing it. They range in length from 4 to 10 minutes. The idea is that you’ll do the exercise, and then watch my video to compare your answer (and approach) with mine.
If you enjoy my Webinars or in-person courses, then I think you’ll also enjoy these videos.
The screencasts, available with the two higher-tier “Practice Makes Python” packages, can be streamed in HD video quality, or can be downloaded (DRM-free) to your computer for more convenient viewing.
To celebrate finally finishing these videos, I’m offering the two higher-end packages at 20% off for the coming week, until February 18th. Just use the offer code “videodone” with either the “consultant” or “developer” package, and enjoy a huge amount of Python video.
You can explore these packages at the “Practice Makes Python” Web site.
Not interested in my book, but still want to improve your Python skills? You can always take one of my two free e-mail courses, on Python variable scoping and working with files. Those are and will remain free forever. And of course, there’s my free Webinar on Python and data science next week.
It’s time for another free hour-long Webinar! This time, I’ll be talking about the increasingly popular tools for data science in Python, namely Pandas and Matplotlib. How can you read data into Pandas, manipulate it, and then plot it? I’ll show you a large number of examples and use cases, and we’ll also have lots of time for Q&A. Previous Webinars have been lots of fun, and I expect that this one will be, too!
Register (for free) to participate here:
If you aren’t sure whether you’ll be able to make it, you can still sign up; I’ll be sending information, and a URL with the recording afterwards, soon after the Webinar concludes.
My interview with Matt Inglot, on the Freelance Transformation podcast, about how technical training is a great business for many consultants, is live! If you’ve ever wanted to know about technical training, how that business works, how you can get started, or some of my strategies for working with clients, then this is your chance:
If you’re at all interested in technical training, then you should take my free, five-part e-mail course on the subject, which will help you to teach better.
