Lesson 29.3 Generators Revisited

In the previous video, we said that generators are a type of coroutine. In this video, we explore this idea. We use yield statements to write generators that are a little more sophisticated than…

Lesson 20.1 Class Definitions

In this video we show you the basic format of a class definition. However, classes can contain a lot of features, so our classes will be very simple for this demonstration.

Lesson 13.6 Assert Helpers

Sometimes we absolutely need to enforce all of our preconditions, and we cannot live with the compromises of the previous video. In this video we show how to use top-down design to give us more…

Lesson 10.6 Top-Down Design

Top-down design is a widely–used design technique. Your instructor used it to design the first assignment, and you will use it yourself in later assignments. In this video we take a closer look…

Lesson 10.2 Function Stubs

Once we have an algorithm, it is time to get started writing code. In this video we talk about function stubs, which are how we get started. We like function stubs because they act as placeholders…

Lesson 9.8 Conditionals & Test Cases

Ideally, test cases should be designed from the specification and without reading the code. But once the code is written, we want to have proper code coverage, testing every single command in the…

Lesson 3.1 Built-In Functions

The easiest functions to use in Python are those that are built into it. They are listed on the Python Documentation page. In this video we examine some of these and show the syntax for how to use…

Lesson 2.4 Dynamic Typing

If you have programmed before (and it is okay if you have not), you may be used to variables having the restriction that they can only contain specific types. This is not the case in Python, and that…

Lesson 0.4 Shortcuts & Tricks

Python scripts are files containing pre-written Python code. You can run a Python script even if you do not understand the code inside of it. In this video we show you how to do exactly that.
