The Python 101 Screencast Kickstarter is Now Live!

My latest project is turning my book, Python 101, into a Screencast. I have started a Kickstarter to raise funds to help in this endeavor. You can check it out here:

The basic idea is to take each chapter of the book and turn it into a screencast. There are 44 chapters currently that will be turned into mini-videos. I’ve already realized I can add a lot of other items in a screencast that are easier to show than to write about, so there will definitely be additional content. I hope you will join me in this project.

Thanks,
Mike

The Python 101 Screencast Kickstarter is Launching Soon

I am currently working on another Kickstarter campaign to turn my book, Python 101 into a video series. I am planning on launching this project on Wednesday, March 25th. There are 44 chapters in my book, so I’ll be creating a minimum of 44 screencast videos. Here is what is currently covered in the book and what will also be covered in the video series:

Machine vision with Python Kickstarter

Yesterday I posted about PyImageSearch Gurus computer vision Kickstarter and then I came across another semi-related Kickstarter. This one is for Machine vision with Python using an OpenMV Cam. It uses MicroPython (Python for microcontrollers) to control a camera on a circuit board. This project can be used with an Arduino, mbed or other microcontroller over I2C, Serial, or SPI protocols. I believe the Raspberry Pi falls into one or more of the latter categories.

They haven’t reached their goal yet, but they have almost a month left to raise the funds. You can check our their project here.

The PyImageSearch Gurus Kickstarter for Computer Vision

I’ve actually never heard of this guy, but the fellow behind the pyimagesearch blog has created a Kickstarter for a computer vision subscription course. His name is Adrian Rosebrock and his Kickstarter was funded in 25 minutes! His course covers a lot of different topics in computer vision and sounds really interesting. You should definitely check it out, especially if you’re in this field.
