the tutorial is clear, but the volume of the sound is a bit to low.

Awesome, very good for beginners!!

Good tutorial.

I didn't know it was that easy in ubuntu.

On your next video could you bump up the audio level a bit?

low audio level is my only complaint.

Thanks for the tutorial.

Please do more.

That was GREAT! I am still a bit confused but this has certainly filled in a bunch of the missing puzzle pieces for me


Good to see you are using GCC (obvious choice in Ubuntu).

Your voice resembles in pitch and accent as Kyran Dale's!

really very nice! The sound is a bit low but the video is fine. As a c++er of many years it's great to see such a demonstration. You fitted a lot of important but basic stuff in and I liked the little diversions - for pedagogic purposes avoiding the std namespace is very sensible. Nice and gentle - perfect newbie fodder.

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.
