@fredrikaverpil @mottosso: I used free and open source alternatives :)
If you want to capture a video,
SimpleScreenRecorder is by far the best screen recorder I've ever used (including camtasia in Windows and ffmpeg), I don't know how it works internally but there's almost no drop in framerate while capturing.
For the animated gif though, I used
gifsycle, a set of command line programs for creating and editing animated gif from the terminal (as vim is terminal based).
Both alternatives are *nix-only afaik.
@/all Does anyone know of a good online service for making polls?
I thought it might be interesting for us to get a glimpse of who we all are, a little about our goals for learning C, our experiences along with technicalities such as what platforms we are on etc. to make future projects and screencasts as relevant and to the point as possible, and of course, to get to know each other a little!
All voluntary of course.
For slides and presentations, for example, there is this https://slides.com/
Is there a similarly slick service for making polls?
Here's yesterday's screencast, re-recorded so as to be archived on YouTube, as will all future screencasts.
Getting them from streaming live all the way to YouTube can take a number of hours, so you can also find them immediately after a stream here:
In a nutshell, me and @Byron were having a conversation that went a little like this.
Byron: How often should we make screencasts? Mottosso: How about once a week? Byron: Noo, we should make one every day!
So I figured we'd ask you what suits you better. :) If you can, take a moment to tick the box you like the best.
In addition to screencast, we're also getting ready to kick off the sequel to our first "Hello, World!" project. If nothing fits, feel free to get creative and provide your own idea!
I'll leave these polls open for a few days before we tally it all up and determine what to do next!
Go team, go!
@mottosso started a Glassary page: https://github.com/learnclang/about/wiki/Glossary
Feel free to change it's location if you feel it's in the wrong place. I just thought it would be handy to have a place with some definitions that we can refer to when reading about C or watching screencasts.
