Hello, I came across your videos when I was searching the internet for help on scripts for a thing called "rpg maker xp" and I heard ruby can be used in it. I was wondering if you knew anything about it or if you could do some videos showing how to use ruby script with it if it does infact use ruby.

Nicely done series (or at least intro series). A couple of them have the volume too low, but the overall series is pretty good. Thanks.

Review of Variables in Practice

please add the .dup method to this video. I see it on the comments section.

14. anonymous Mon, 09 Jun 2008 05:36

I watched through the series on Ruby, it's good stuff, gives a nice introduction, I would have personally enjoyed more episodes, had there been some available :)

The sound volume varies with each video, this is something you should pay attention to, imho.

Very good intro to the ruby language, just what I needed. Thanks!!!

The "bang" suffix actually hails back to the lisp era(!) and was introduced exactly for the same reason.

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 Lucas
