I strongly agree on great pacing, eloquence and voicing.

The search box at bottom is a minor distraction. Adding to python-advocacy feedback, I think a nice "cover slide" would be a nice replacement for the blank screen.

One thing that looks weird is that you are logged at the beginning of the video, so you get an "Editing" view, that just goes away and "mailbox" appears in the search field.

Also, I think you could show the list of values for fields you described in the issue view.

I think describing an issue life-cycle could be a great screencast, but simply mentioning what status and resolution mean would be fine too.

Thanks a lot for the screencast!

Wow, this is probably the most eloquent/fine-voiced screencast I've ever heard of. The only feedback is the low volume.

Great job AMK!

One query though: in the date fields, your display looked like your field separator was an equals sign (=), but I assume it was actually delimited by hyphens (-), is that so? And, I assume the dates must all be Japanese style (YYYY-MM-DD), right? Perhaps demoing the "cal" popup would make this clearer to people.

Anyway, great first screen cast and keep 'em coming!

The TimeHorse

Well done. Clear, comprehensive, good pace ... the only minor nitpick is that I found I had to put the volume on maximum on my computer to hear it at what I thought was an appropriate level - and this was in a fairly quiet room.

Please make some more videos on issues relevant to people who want to contribute to Python development.

welcome to showmedo Andrew!

- a good screencast, nicely paced, clear and authoritative. Cool to see the mechanism behind Python's inexorable progress.

The ShowMeDo Robot says - this video is now published, thanks for adding to ShowMeDo.

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.

Learning Paths
