Each episode will either feature short focused tips and tricks that you can apply to your own project immediately, or longer tutorial pieces that help guide you in new subject areas.

Last week industry leaders came together to share their expertise at “Waza”---the Japanese word for art and technique. Heroku sponsors this event to celebrate the craftsmanship of app development and to create an environment that fosters collaboration, learning, and innovation through technical sessions and speaker events.

If you weren't in the sold out crowd, not to worry. Information should flow free and experiences should be shared; in line with those concepts you can watch Jacob Kaplan-Moss talk right here "Caring for Your Baby Ecosystem" at http://vimeo.com/61059530.

ABOUT KAPLAN-MOSS: Jacob Kaplan-Moss is one of the lead developers and co-creator of Django. Jacob's an experienced software developer with a focus on web application architecture. He's a consultant at Revolution Systems (revsys.com/), where he helps companies deploy and scale websites using Python and Django. Jacob is also the CTO of Grove.io,an enterprise chat service backed by IRC.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
