Old Plone man is always hesitating between Django and Repose.BFG for simple sites.

Too fast. Too brief. Inappropriate background track.

Thanks. Apart from Django Reinhart, I had no clue what Django

might be!

Great intro video. I was able to find this on the Django site itself, but still good intro.

not bad for 56 seconds, but could still use a few more features. Explain -why- I'd use django.

Answered the question "what is Django" in under a minute. Great overview, well done.

background music alone makes this video great

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 Ian
