Thank you. It was comforting and helpful to hear you.

More commentary about the choosing of custom building over the standard choice would be helpful, otherwise I learn nothing new. I have no idea why I would chose to custom build and what the context of that choice is and what my options are and why I might want them! This video was helpful at a surface level to just get started 'somehow, anyhow', but then I think we barely understand what the product can do for us and how creative we can be with it at the stage when we need to make these start-up decisions.

In another series would it be possible to front load what you are saying with more education, and weave it in as you go, as well?

thanks for keeping it short and sweet (breaking the process down into segments or blocks ) segmented learners are pleased.

as you describe the action and reason behind the action before<<< starting the process on the video this will allow us to hear before we see and comprehend before we create.

not critical of your fine efforts here just suggestions for better learning. c);{

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
