Havn't looked at it well enough but the first one seems too fast but then it is only an introduction of what is to be covered. Yet to look at the real videos in the series.

I've always liked showmedo videos...

Hello John,

You get my vote. Amazingly easy to setup. Question though. Any thoughts as to why the webpage fails to load in Google Chrome? It will load in IE/Mozilla.

I had to play it twice to follow the speech. My first time with showmedo and it is hard to follow the navigation sytem. Where do I go from here.? Rod B

Looking forward to the rest of the series. Cheers!

Very interesting. I'm eager to start the series. Thanks for a good tutorial.

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 John
