Hello Joseph,

I'm eager to learn how to generate add-ons for NVDA! I have experience programming computer software using several programming languages, but, no experience with Python. I have downloaded and installed Python version 2.7 and I am currently working my way through the tutorial included with that package. I see that code blocks are discriminated solely through the indentation of code lines.

Can you recommend a text editor that is Python-friendly and accessable with NVDA? BTW, I don't use Braille, if that makes a difference.

Another thing: When I went to

I was unable to figure out how to download NVDA source code (git clone -recursive)

Do you have any suggestions?

T I A,

Hi everyone,

Session 0 (overview) from Your First NVDA App Module course is now

Also, session 1 (app module introduction) will be held on June 25, 2016 at
11 AM Pacific (18:00 UTC) at NVDACon Korea TeamTalk Server (
You need TT5 (be sure to install TT5 Classic client) and enter the following
server information:

* URL:

* TCP: 10333

* UDP: 10333

* No username or password required.

* Channel will be root (nvdachat).

If you are interested in learning to write app modules, please think about
an app you feel an app module could be useful by session 1. For those who'd
like to use this opportunity as a stepping stone for contributing to NVDA
Core development, please checkout NVDA source code (git clone -recursive as we'll be using app modules in there as
examples. For people not interested in coding, don't worry - a backstage
tour will be provided to show you how app modules work behind the scenes.
For those who cannot make it, audio recordings of each session will be
provided shortly after the session ends.

P.S. If you know anyone in your language community who'd like to write app
modules, please feel free to invite them. Also, other app module experts are
more than welcome to chime in their expertise during course sessions.

See you on June 25th.
