Very good tutorial!


Now it is REALLY getting interesting. I had to watch this one several times. One note: At 5:39 you skipped over "Field Assignments". I hope it will come up in the next lesson.


Welcome back Dai - good work as ever. Gentle, nicely paced and comprehensive. I'll work on a really cool badge for when you reach a 100 ;)

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 Dai
