How to make data reports using the free and open source SOFA Statistics package <>. The GUI interface makes it easy to analyse your data and share the results.

One example looks at car brand by nation (using made-up data) and shows how a table can reveal patterns e.g. BMW is more popular in Germany than in Japan. Another table explores relationships between age, gender, and weight. Results can be pasted into spreadsheets or displayed in a web browser.

Hi Stella,

Glad to hear you liked it. What sort of class was that? And what part was difficult before the video?

All the best, Grant

Very interesting and helpful especially when it has been worked on in class and I couldn't understand it, so this was very helpful. Thank you

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.
