The Show-Me-Do website video tutorial are excellent and the information communicated in these productions is invaluable.

Thanks so much for the tutorials - your work is great! I would love to see some Server management and software development screencasts, especially on using x-windows for remote software development using Eclipse IDE. Haven't found any screencasts around on these topics.

Hey Lucas and Mario!

There is so much for the beginner to read about using free systems and it's nice to be able to listen and get some history for a change for a change.

Many thanks!! :)

Anon - I think it is ok, it is just that the video runs on at the end for a while after Marius finishes speaking. Nothing to worry about, as far as I can see.


it seems to just stop at the end. no sound or new slides....

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.

Kudos and Thanks for Lucas
