I am writing up some notes for some students (several who have never done computer programming before) to do basic plotting. The issue is that the documentation for PyPlot is targeted at people who are able to read the matplotlib documentation and is focused on helping people to translate matpoltlib.pyplot calls into Julila. New users are not going to be able to do that (though it is perfect for them later).
My thinking was that these things are best taught by example, if the main concern is to help people get started on basic plots (i.e. for problem sets, not for publication). The best source I have found is: https://gist.github.com/gizmaa/7214002
Is this mostly up to date and accurate? Are there any other sources worth giving to users to help them learn plotting basics?
