    Comments about oreilly Mastering Python - Networking and Security:

    I'd like to balance out the ratings for this training since it is very useful. The code samples are provided and if you have a base knowledge of python already then it is not hard to follow along with the videos. The examples/samples are very helpful in my opinion.

      Comments about oreilly Mastering Python - Networking and Security:

      intresting topics, but it seems like it's done for a live audience not for video course, what we are looking at is just a code snipet and voice. when he is of demostrating his code examples you dont see any thing.. and it is quite irritating and fustrating to hear "yea here you can see, that you get 200.." but on the screen is the same code snipet as before. would also to help have a "magic marker" to show which part of the code he is talking about, can be quite hard to follow when the code gets more complex.

      this is probobly one of the worse infinitiskills video i have encounterd. until the author have fixed the videos, where we can actually follow all the examples of how it shoud look when running, i would probobly wait to buy the course. until the videos are fixed i give the grade of two stars.
