this is great material!

Very useful. One problem with the video is the background noise, which is a distraction

Excellent information. Well organized.

pretty good, i did not know it was a bad thing to import *, but now i understand that its better to use objects with their full namespace.

lots of typing but clean...

Very good introduction. Nice microphone work ;-)


great video...

thank you!

Couldn't you move your mic less and don't drop it during tutorial?

I look forward to the rest of your series; however I'm surprised that you didn't remake the introduction to make a video without the several very startling episodes of mic noise.

Thanks for your positive feedback, gasto, I really appreciate it!

I am glad you are making Club ShowMeDo screencasts. This will help give learners more reasons to join ShowMeDo and keep it self-maintainable.

This series seems to be very promising.

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
