This series of training videos explains basic programming concepts by relating them to real-life objects, actions, and scenarios. Each video will focus on a different analogy, mixing live action with segments that demonstrate the concepts in code. For example, Barron Stone connects functions to recipes, lists to parking spaces, and loops to that perpetual chore: dishwashing. He illustrates most of the examples using Python, but you can follow along in any language you choose. Start watching and learn about... Reusing functions Local vs. global variables Creating and naming custom objects Class inheritance Modules and packages Multidimensional lists and tuples Queues and stacks Creating and combining sets Storing data in dictionaries If/else and switch statements For vs. while loops Error handling Polling and event-driven programming
