Double-buffering is a technique used to minimise flicker on the screen, by drawing to an offscreen buffer and copying the buffer to the screen in one operation. John demonstrates this technique to create a double buffered Java Applet.

Just watched the first 4 videos in this set and just wanted to say 'thank you' for showing me just what i needed... an interesting introduction to Java.

Any possibility of a code download? It would make following the video much easier

On to the next video, I wanted to thank you for making it easy for us beginners in Eclipse and Java (coming from .Net/C# world). I paused many times to keep up with you, but learned a lot. Still don't know the difference between double buffering and it's alternative, but I've never done anything involving dynamically updating a screen before!

Great stuff, easy to follow,

(bad that this problem is not handled in Java from the beginning.)

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
