  • Yes. We also need:
    • Perl on Rails (Show Jifty, Catalyst, or CGI::App)
    • Hello World CGI
    • How do I install modules from CPAN? (I prefer this syntax to the "What is CPAN", above, that is, if the answers are the same)

    Recommend you test the visibility of the text on different services. Consider http://revver.com/ [revver.com] - we might be able to donate proceeds to TPF. If not, http://video.google.com/ [google.com] might have better clarity over http://youtube.com/ [youtube.com]

  • Is a great idea.
  • Okay. I got my own login so I can now post my crazy ideas myself.

    For the record, the above is just a list I braindumped into Schwern's IM window last night past my bedtime. It's a good starting point, by no means complete, and I fully expect parts of the list to be deleted/merged/focus-changed.

    The idea is to have these available on YouTube/GoogleVideo/perl.org/BitTorrent/etc. as standalones, as part of a FAQ, Wiki, or (best case) as part of an "open source" Perl course syllabus.

    Next steps (high level):

    • They're called oysters ;)
    • The actual movie making skills aren't that hard to learn.

      I learnt the basics in a few hours/days when making up the movies for my YAPC talk.

      I think what you need to deal with first is style, content and storyboarding.

      Are we going to make them funny? Use real people? Cartoons? Just screen captures?

      All these parts of production can be done with the actual video editing skills.
  • Hi

    I think this is a great idea too.
    Anyone who wonders why Ruby on Rails, is so popular need go no further than their screencast page to see how easy it is http://www.rubyonrails.org/screencasts/ [rubyonrails.org].
    Of course we know its probably easier and more fun in Perl.

    My recommendation for creating such screencasts is wink. http://www.debugmode.com/wink/ [debugmode.com].
    (Its opensource, Windows/Linux and creates a Small flash swf file from your demo)
    It comes with 2 screen cast tutorials.
    After looking at those, that you be up and running
