Introduction to Pylint

Watch this short screencast to get an introduction to the python code analysis tool pylint.

As part of my training as an instructor with Software Carpentry one task is to produce a 3 minute screencast on something related to the aims of that organisation. Since python features heavily in their courses I thought something about software engineering for python would be suitable.

The video can be downloaded here.

The test file used is here and a re-implementation which pylint finds acceptable is here.
