About a month ago, my most recent course on Lynda.com published covering OpenCV and python!
- Installing on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux (compiling from source)
- Basic image operations
- Object detection
- Face and Feature Detection
One notable aspect of this course is the use of OpenCV3 and Python3. While both have been around for a few years, few resources teach version 3 of both simultaneously. Future-proof yourself by learning the latest and greatest!
For more examples of what you can do with openCV, check out these pages. While built on C++, these examples use the same library calls available in python.
