Recently, a university professor contacted us about using Komodo as a teaching tool for his course on web design. He wanted to know if we could refer him to any educational resources demonstrating web editing with Komodo.
Since I suspect this is a common topic of interest for educators and newbies such as myself, I thought I would share my recommendations on this blog. Hopefully at least one of these videos inspires you to make a kick-ass web application, or at least give your WYSIWYG the boot.
You can download Komodo Edit (free) here, or create an account on the ActiveState Platform to try Komodo IDE for free!

Here’s another take on starting a project, with the addition of creating your own HTML5 template from a regular HTML template. This was posted as part of a Florida State University program.
By now you probably get the idea. These are good introductions, but the rest is up to you. The next step is simply to start a project with Komodo, get a feel for it, and use it in conjunction with your web editing course (or self-education).
Good luck and happy editing!
CareyH recently did a blog post on walking through the Udacity.com Python course with Komodo. Udacity.com offers free online courses, including one on web development.
