I think java (not javascript) is very complicated!

I really liked having the debugging portion in there. It probably would have been easy to cut it out, but that adds to the learning experience.

Review of Building a JavaScript GUI from SWT Code

thank you so much for this tutorial about J2S. Even though this tutorial was a little bit too advanced for me I enjoyed it. It would have been more helpfull for newbies like me, to have introductory videos for javascript the language, javabeans and eclipse. When those prerequisite tutorials are available on showmedo, they would add a lot of value to your tutorials for newbies like me. So get to work, good job and keep them coming!!! :)

Thanks, Really Nice

Thank you very much!

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.

Kudos and Thanks for Steven
