New ShowMeDo

We are pleased to say that a new version of the site is on-line with improved navigation and a better look and feel.

New Java and Eclipse ShowMeDos

John Montgomery has contributed a set of 3 videos introducing Java programming with the Eclipse IDE.

John covers writing a first Java program, code completion and the rename refactoring tool.

New updates coming

Sometime around the weekend we will get a new version of the site on-line. Kyran has been working double-time on the new look, the navigational features are nicely improved.

We’ll also have a new video set of at least three videos on Using Eclipse and Java by John Montgomery.

Forum on-line

Our latest site addition is the forum. I’m collecting notes from our contributors on how to go about making new ShowMeDos. Feel free to post a question or share some knowledge!

Lots of new requests available for voting

We’ve got 13 requests listed, all of which you can vote on. They range from Kyran’s suggestion of a Great Tea video, through Python IDEs and tools and back out to (of all things) Knitting.

Let your voice be heard…

Getting Into Screencasting (Jerol Harrington)

The following was kindly written by Jerol Harrington to help anyone who is interested in making a ShowMeDo.

I made my first ShowMeDo because I had started to use wxPython and realized how important it was to understand objects. Since Ian had produced ShowMeDo’s on Python, and Ipython, and Kyran had done the same for wxPython, [...]
