I have a series of Kivy video tutorials, walking through building a simple app from scratch in ~10 minute increments, including cool Kivy stuff like compiling for Android. I posted them here once before shortly after I started, but I've made a lot more since then!

There haven't been any for a little while, partly because I ran out of ideas that really grabbed me, so...to any Kivy users out there, what do you want to hear about!?

(For anyone that doesn't know, Kivy is a graphical framework for Python that amongst other things is highly cross platform, working on Linux, OS X, Windows plus Android, iOS and devices like the Raspberry Pi)

In my 14th crash course video, I talk about how to use the ScreenManager widget to add different screens to your Kivy program. I also mention the second Kivy programming contest, which you should all enter at http://kivy.org/#contest

In Kivy crash course 13 I show how to use Kivy's settings widgets, useful for storing persistent settings in a file along with a nice user interface for changing them.

In this video, I examine layout in Kivy by ignoring the Layout classes and setting position/size from scratch...only to reinvent Layouts because they're so useful.
