Evaluate my tutorial !
The title says it all. I began writing this tutorial some time ago, and now I'm wondering if it really that useful. Or maybe I'm not on the right track.
So before I really get into writing it, I'd like you guys to check it out and tell me your impressions, good or bad (especially bad). I'm far from being finished, and I just wanna make sure I'm not mistaken on what I should be writing.
Thanks for your time !

Yeah, it looks worthwhile. It's easy to read, and informative. Maybe you could try to give it an edge by making the whole tutorial aim towards writing a particular application that uses all or most of the techniques you cover, and that people might actually want to write.
What I mean by that last bit is that often these tutorials tell you how to write some scientific tool that not many people would find interesting.
Oh, and one correction: on page 4, in the second example where you quickly demonstrate a function, line 4 of the example looks like it should be "foo(b)" where you wrote "print b".

Right you are. Just proves you were paying attention, that's cool Thanks a lot.
But your idea of centering it around some small application is a quite good idea. I'll be thinking about that ... if any of you has some idea about a small-sized app I could add, feel free to send in your ideas !

Sounds good to me, the intro rocks very class. You might wana go over your examples and double check everything.
Page 10: in your first example you missed out a comma by ', age' and in your type casting you have string() instead of str(). Two things which will cause some nice errors
I didnt check your other examples after this so you'll have to do that. Post a link when you're finished
