Great screencast!

Very niely done (content and presentaion wise).

One thing though: it would be great if you wouldn't have such a long promt in your terminal a it is a bit arkward to read all those commands with the wrapped lines.

Sorry it was not a good experience for you. I look forward to the useful screencasts you'll be posting soon.

This illustrates how useless creencasts can be. It takes 40 minutes to watch this thing and figure out what could have been summarized in a searchable blog post that could be read and scanned in five minutes. Unfortunately, no such blog post exists and this is the only tutorial available at this time.

Video published, thanks for contributing to ShowMeDo

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.
