An Introduction to C++ on Linux with Hello World [ID:890] (1/2)

in series: An Introduction to C++ on Linux with Hello World

video tutorial by pedro_orange, added 10/08

(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

A simple C++ Hello World application showing you how to write and compile c++ on Ubuntu linux. No sound accompanies this video. A tester video to see if the demand is there. Intention would be to redo this with sound, along with adding additional instructional videos showing more complex operations.

I would be interested in more tutorials in C++ on Linux

19. anonymous Tue, 15 Sep 2009 04:11

just stumbled onto this site. i program pic microcontrollers in assembly and am now learning c/c++. this has already been added to favourites. i currently dual boot with xp/ubuntu 7.04

and it's the quickest and easiest hello world i've seen yet

thank you

Very helpful video for showing how to compile using Ubuntu. Explanations of various commands using sound could greatly enhance usefulness.

17. anonymous Mon, 31 Aug 2009 02:11

send me the info on linux as much as you can

16. anonymous Mon, 03 Aug 2009 17:47

Nice video, very short and to the point. I think it will help a beginner starting on Ubuntu. :)

Great, simply and direct.

Thank you.

I am glad you did this video, I am a Linux user and it looks like 99% of the videos on this site are using windows.

Please make more of these with audio.

Start the series pedro_orange, before we send for Spanish inquisition : )

12. anonymous Sun, 31 May 2009 16:05

Video ok, but with speaking would be better.

11. anonymous Sat, 30 May 2009 23:37

good job

10. anonymous Sun, 26 Apr 2009 17:48

Thanks a lot! This was very useful

Nice done. My source c++ apps ends with .cpp instead of .c, but this is personal i guess. keep up the good work!

8. anonymous Thu, 26 Mar 2009 22:30

I appreciate your work very much. Great pacing! I am older and had some difficulty reading the text though.

Again, Thank you and I will cheack out more works

I tried to get the audio volume to increase, but no go. The only audio that is audible is the final author tag,

some volume would be nice. just to narrate.

Exactly the right way to start - though I second Ian's remarks viz larger fonts. And a voice-over does add a lot to the experience. Personally i've used C++ for over ten years and would love to see a whole heap of screencasts - it's a huge language in every sense and behind much of the FOSS achievements. IMO every programmer should have a basic acquaintance. Big thumbs up for more!

Thanks for the encouraging comments guys.

I am having some problems recording audio at present (It sounds distant and there is a loud hiss - possibly from the mic boost) however when I manage to sort that out I will republish this video with some addition notes on STL strings which fit nicely in with this sort of demo.

Watch this space!

Cool to see other authors use GCC .

Hopefully, as Ian already pointed out, the next screencast is created with audio.

Nice first video. I have some suggestions - first, you ought to change your resolution when recording, it looks too small here. Recordings made at 800x600 work really well.

Secondly - voice really adds a lot to the demonstration! I really suggest a re-recording (you can upload a replacement over this one) using voice, it'll bring so much more life to the video.

That said, this is our first C compilation video on Ubuntu so thanks for the contribution. I hope others feel similarly.



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.
