Day 9: Programming

Our first screencast showing a bit of Python programming is now up for comments. [Link no longer active, more recent link to screencast on dictionaries.] It's deliberately low-tech: we used Emacs as an editor, and simply showed the program's textual output instead of stepping through it with a debugger. (Our next programming lectures will be IDE-based for comparison.) Please tell us what you think about the pace, watchability, etc.
