Thanks! I'd would love having some subtitles, to ease understanding in a noisy environment.

Good introduction, can use more details on SCM

Good start. Show me more!

This video is well described and easy to follow.

The sound could be improved.


Useful, but I was expecting more on the basics of version control rather than a reveiw of who offers it.

It's a good introduction video.

Thanks a lot for the video. Strongly agree with the comment about the importance for version control for amateurs and professionals.

Pretty good so far

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 Chris
