video tutorial by Kenny X, added 01/10

(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

In this tutorial you will learn how to blit an image, fill a surface, and move an image. The game will be a ball bouncing across the screen and hitting the walls.

Features include Rects, Surfaces, and frames per second managed time. This will be used to make the game.

Again, a good lesson with excellent substance, very informative. Same criticism as the last video, you just need to work on the presentation a bit, plan out the lesson a bit better with perhaps notes would make a world of difference. I learned quite a bit, thanks for the lesson

Wow! Hope you'll do the follow game you mentioned in the course of the tutorial.

Cool! Nicely chosen demo - at the right pace for beginners I think. I would be inclined with these long screencasts to break them down into smaller chunks - makes it much easier to find that little bit of code demonstration. I might also have got the basic room and ball (maybe moving through the walls to infinity) up on the screen earlier. Anyway, a really nice screencast. I'll blog and twitter it and try and get some deserved viewers.

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 Kenny
