Aside from the Rails demo, are there any ruby videos online?

Thanks

I use Snapz Pro X, on Mac OS X.

vnc2swf seems to produce much smaller files.

I’ve used Microsoft’s Media Encoder. Free, good results, easy to use.

Some Nitro/Og videos now, but I’m not aware of any generic Ruby videos.

I’ve started playing with screencasts, and have put a short video up
at http://www.red-bean.com/~pate/rwb/simple_rwb.html (the server seems
to be down at the moment, but check back in a bit)

While it shows a bit about RWB, it’s more a rehearsal for some test
first
screencasts I’m planning on doing.

I would like to see these too. They would make a nice addition to
the language home page.

Here is a bunch of screencast packages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screencast

This might be of use with the robot simulation. If you change the
timer TkTimer interval from 20 to say 100 you can study the simulation
in greater details:

def init_simulation
#you can slow down the simulation 5x by chaning 20 to 100ms
@robots, @bullets, @explosions = {}, {}, {}
TkTimer.new(100, -1, Proc.new{
  begin
    draw_frame
  rescue => err
    puts err.class, err, err.backtrace
    raise
  end
}).start

end

Capturing the window will allow you to play it back and study whats
going on.

I think this is great stuff, though we probably want content with
less pauses, in general. If we all made a movie or two for our
little interests, this could get significant in a hurry…

I have a feeling I don’t fully understand your question
based on other responses, but Ezra has my lame RubyConf05
vids online at:

http://brainspl.at/articles/2005/12/01/rubyconf-files-resurrected

There are also some Euroko vids online, e.g.,

http://futurometer.com/320x240x15fps/

P.S. I am still working on re-resurrecting the video
of Ryan D.’ talk from RubyConf05 – long story.

Agreed; things are fragmented: Ezra has the audio and videos[1],
ZenSpider[2] has the presentations, and RubyConf[3] has the synopses.

I personally thought the RubyZilla
[http://ruby-gnome2.sourceforge.jp/hiki.cgi?RubyZilla] video was cool.

I’m not sure. I was thinking more of the Ruby on Rails tutorial or of
the Sussman class
http://swiss.csail.mit.edu/classes/6.001/abelson-sussman-lectures/.

A suggestion I would make about the RubyConf05 page is that it would be
better with some soret of description of each session.
