22 August 2010 - 0:20Weekly python tips (WeeklyPyTips) mailing list

Update – the weekly Python tips list is suspended for now. I’ve ended up way to busy on other projects, I don’t have the 5+ hours to write and publish each tip at present. The list is on hold, it may be reactivated later.

I’ve just written the first few weeks worth of Python Tips for my new list: weeklypytips AT aweber.com or use the form below.

The list is aimed at beginner and intermediate Pythonistas, if you join then each week you’ll receive a Python tip (probably 3-6 paragraphs with source code). I originally announced it in the Python Tutor list.

The first batch of tips cover:

  • Downloading files from the Internet in just 2 lines
  • Scraping web sites
  • IPython introduction
  • Iteration
  • Controlling hardware (including serial ports, cameras and robots)

I have a long list of topics to cover, if the feedback is positive then I’ll keep adding the tips. To join the list just mail the email address above (the email can be empty), you’ll be asked to confirm your subscription, after that you’ll get one tip per week.

To make it really easy just use the form below: REMOVED
