Learning Python Design Patterns Through Video Lectures In my previous post about learning Python programming through video lectures I stopped at three lectures on Design Patterns. This time I continue from there. If you don't know what a Design Pattern is, think of it as a simple solution to a specific problem that occurs very frequently in software design. For example, suppose you use a bunch of unrelated pieces of code. It is a nice idea to bring the unrelated pieces of code together in a unified interface. This design pattern is called Facade. The three lectures are given by Alex Martelli who works as "Über Tech Lead" for Google. Python Design Patterns, Part I Alex briefly covers the history and main principles of Design Patterns and quickly moves to discussing Structural and Behavioral DPs in Python. Interesting ideas from the lecture: Python Design Patterns, Part II In this lecture Alex discusses behavioral patterns. Python Design Patterns, A Recap This video lecture was presented at Google Developers day.

BeginnersGuide/NonProgrammers Python for Non-Programmers If you've never programmed before, the tutorials on this page are recommended for you; they don't assume that you have previous experience.
