Python After Hours

After Hours Programming

There are lots of sites that will tell you that they will help you get started with learning the python programming language.
Many of them will take you a few steps and then ask for you to pay them for access to the rest of the course.
The site on this link is a little different. You can work through all of the stages for free. It seems that they can do this by displaying ads for related books on Amazon. Each book has strong recommendations that you purchase, but with sufficient determination you can work through all stages without purchasing the book.
However, the learning that you do will be quite basic, and you will most likely need to look elsewhere to fill any gaps or topics that were not covered comprehensively.
Have a go, and share your experience.

Age: Apple Deal for Teachers is Rotten –… #education2.0 #sigh
MOST professionals would be scandalised if they were told they had to fork out for their own work computer. But not only are Victorian teachers forced to lease their laptops from the Education Department, they have also been twitter Inspirationtold if they want a Mac they have to choose a model that was killed off by Apple last month.

It seems that things don’t change in a slow moving system like an Education Department. Teachers had to buy their own computers for use in their work back a few years ago. I thought things had changed because when I was filling in for absent teachers in the past 2 years, I often could not use the Interactive Whiteboards installed  in the classrooms because the teacher had taken the laptop home or into the staffroom. I assumed that the teacher had been supplied with the computer. Perhaps not!

Demystifying Links and Blogrolls

Setting Up Links In A Blog.

LinksLinks to other bogs and sites are often shown on a blog, typically in a sidebar, just like this blog. I have 2 different link locations in the sidebar of this blog, one for links to other blogs at dotrim, and the other for links to other domains and locations.

This blog came with a set of default links in a link category called blogroll. I have chosen not to display those links, but rather to set up my own Link Categories and set these to be shown in the sidebar.
