I would like to learn writing of Java applets/scripts. Something that explains each line of code and statement with examples. Where do I start?

I have a Fairchild Semiconductor application note with embedded Java applets and if I sent it to you, can you show me how to understand what is going on and how to modify the code for my own use?

The audio on your "Hello World" demo is too low at max volume.

Tutorial was good, but they are all basic.

Your voice was pretty quiet in this one, and the noise of your PC cooling itself was pretty overwhelming.

However, the video was very helpful. Thank you.

i'm trying Java for first time after using c c++ for a long time, every tutorial i have seen so far i just felt the tutors were making things harder than necessary. Thanks for simplifying it in one brief and concise video.

Hey dude,

Really enjoyed the first one I'm a c++ winforms dev and i'm having a go at applets in eclipse. the first vid was very good (i.e. quick and easy to understand)

Very informative, I will be sure to watch the entire series. Have you ever dabbled in making java applet games? I would love to watch those tutorials as well

Good Screencast. Thanks

Hi, just I had a look at your video, first thanks a lot for doing this at all. I just bumped into this website after looking for info how to use 7 zip and was directly very quickly helped by a video how to do this. Since I just started a Java course and I am just about to do my first applet I thought I check what other videos that are available. Since I am a complete beginner to programming, I just made some minimal C programming as part of a mandatory IT intro course. For me your video was a bit to fast. That's my only comment. Best Regards Eva

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 John
