Writing NetBeans Modules and Flash Tutorials
By Roman Strobl on VI 09, 2005
I've mentioned Geertjan is preparing a tutorial for writing modules:
Sergiu Funieru opened on the nbusers mailing list the idea that next to written tutorials it would be nice to have flash tutorials for NetBeans. I've actually discussed recently this topic with my colleagues and we believe this is the best way how to teach somebody how to use IDE's features. I'll try to come up with instructions how to prepare good flash demos and tutorials. I've discussed it with John from the documentation team as well and they want to create a page with list of all these flash screencasts.
The bottom line is - we invite you for participation. You don't have to use the speech (although it's better) and the flash doesn't have to be long, but let's share your knowledge and experiences with others. You'll have a good feeling about it, I guarantee, I always have it. Otherwise I would not be preparing these demos in my spare time, would I?... ;-)
For the beginning, why don't you try to play with Wink? We'll need to figure out the publishing process, but I guess just placing the flash into a blog and then linking it from netbeans.org is good for now. Maybe we could prepare some competition for best tutorial as well... another hint for the marketing people (actually this is Vincent Brabant's idea, I've just remembered who came with it).
