Awesome Python Video Tutorials Keep You Motivated
Programming languages is one of those topics that we geeks hold very strong and often rather polarized views on. As new computing concepts are imagined, older languages can develop new features, if they are viable, or get left behind when newcomers come along and shake things up a bit. This scribe remembers his early days in embedded systems programming, and the arguments that followed when someone came up with a project that required embedded C ++ or worse, Java, when we were mostly pure C programmers and hard. Fast forward a decade or two, and things are much more complicated. So much choice, so many opinions.
So it’s really nice to come across some really unique and beautifully done Python tutorial videos that are engaging and fun to watch. Led by Canadian actress [Ulka Simone Mohanty] which some may recognize from titles as noble as the game “Magic: The Gathering Arena” and various movies and TV shows, it offers an avatar-style presentation of the most important areas of Python. We were particularly amused by the comment “Loopus Interruptus” as an iterating exception condition at the end of a list.
If you’ve put off your efforts to really get a good overview of Python and gain some programming experience, we think this would be a great place to start. Even if you’re already using Python, you’ll probably get a good look at these videos. We don’t know how you spend your next few hours, but we’ll learn more about Python.

“We are now going to learn how to create and use lists, and we will do it in a linear and orderly fashion”
