I wanted to thank everyone for their participating in the Introduction to Programming with Python and the follow-up session on Django during THATCamps’s BootCamp!
As mentioned during the session I am linking a few resources that can be helpful for aspiring Python Programmers as well as a few other resources referenced. I hope everyone finds them useful.
Great Python Resources
- The Zen of Python – What is the sound of One loop Iterating?
- Python For Non-Programmers – A great meta-list of tutorials and lessons on Python for the non-programmer.
- Google’s Python Classes – Some good screen-casts teaching python from the beginning.
- Official Python Documentation – Great documentation is a core value in the python community and few better examples than the official documentation.
- Django Documentation - The framework use in the second session is also well documented.
- Cool URI’s Don’t Change – Stable and persistent URIs are a vital part of creating durable scholarly works and the foundation of linked data. Every digital scholar can benefit from reading this article.
- O’Reilly on The Importance of Unit Testing – Always important to create a sustainable and extensible application, unit tests can be particularly vital in scholarly projects because of their long lifecycle.
Code From Sessions
Here are the hacky pages of code I was displaying during our session discussion. I don’t see an ability to upload files here so I’m linking them as Google docs.
