    Anybody know where a person can get his notes? Those would be great for a cheat sheet.

    Between single quotes and double quotes there is a difference. The different is of style. For example, type single quotes when using a single 'word' while double quotes for a sentence "Phrase"

    Using spaces instead of tabs? Blasphemy.

  12. Emily Wong September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    Can you use the google docs code editor with python?

    Saul Perlmutter says that students should be working on real problems instead of toys like hello world.

  19. Cristi Neagu September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    I've never programmed anything in Python, but half an hour into this video, after trying to find the solution on my own, and coming up with a Google Maps image showing me all the northbound 22 busses… i'm very impressed.

    EMACS?!?! LOL I'VE HEARD A BETTER JOKE.

  22. Allen Montenegro September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    am I crazy? Every time I create the rt22.xml file, it shows me the last snapshot of that bus in real time. How do I get that historical snapshot the lecturer is referring to? I'm so confused 🙁

  23. somedude somewhere September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    They should be doing a similar tutorial for python 3. Still the best I've seen on youtube so far.

  24. Cao Yi September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    the 2 hours video can be edited into 1 hour or 30 mintus

  25. joel2k13 September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    damn i dont get it, how do you get the xml file and the data from cta ?

  26. novicetech1 September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    What are you doing with the bash commands at minute 38:16?

  27. Online Will September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    nice video

  28. guyfoxmulder September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    The sound is kinda painful… needs filter

  29. suleem meelus September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    -In windows there in NO fucking RUN
    -in 3.6 fucking print is not working because some moron decided to add fucking parenthesis, so how it is possible to learn something if everything is changing faster than you could learn…..

  30. Psychopath McRapeface September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    4 spaces over tab?
    Fuck that shit.

  31. bladwin321 September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    This is so cool. I have spent 2 days looking at videos on Python im a total noob. But im starting to understand how it works so soon i will try and mess around my self. I find it very interesting just to listen on what can be done

    This guy sounds exactly like Adam pally from happy endings

    В России так можно?

  34. inquisitive35 September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    I like that old hand at 0:30 …. Never old to learn a new language ❤️

  35. Sach S September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    Thanks much for putting this informative seminar on the web. One night, I randomly came across this video, followed along & it excited me so much, I'm now studying as a web developer. These type of resources are valuable to beginners.

  36. incaroads September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    This looks great but is there any chance of an updated version for python 3.2.5? Have you published one already?

  37. Mike Martin September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    Are the files available for download?

    Is it just me or is he talking too fast?

  39. Harold Disney September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    Very fun exercise.

  40. Arthur Howland September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    Hmm I ran it in Python 2.7.3 plus an alternate version in 3.2.3 and it didn't do anything. Where's the data? Using a raspberry pi to run the program. ** update oh it saved the xml as a file. Got it.

  41. Malick Cisse September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    Hi, is the url code supposed to open the xml file as shown in the tutorial? I wrote my code exactly but it is not reading any files from the cta website. Thanks in advanc

  42. havoc010101 September 28, 2017 at 2:13 am

    This was a fun tutorial. Finally, something beyond the de facto standard 'Hello,World' program. I would like to know how to finish the first solution? When the bus is .5 miles away from the office, how can you get the application to show the location of the bus a map? Thanks!!

    for those who use python3: the urllib library now doesn't support url lib.urlopen(), see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3969726/attributeerror-module-object-has-no-attribute-urlopen

    It would be great if you would upload the examples converted to Python 3.5
