Feedback on screencasts, pretty please!

    @scottnix – Will do, thanks again for your feedback – I think I’ll definitely do a show and tell of apps and workflow as a separate series as well to highlight some of the tools and sublime plugins I use.

    These screencasts are awesome, learnt a lot to increase workflow!

    @jshjohnson – Many thanks for your feedback, I’m going to keep cracking on with these. Is there anything in particular that you would like to learn more about or have something explained in more depth?

    @AndyHowells – I can not see the videos in work as they block the use of Vimeo on the network. So therefore I am unable to tell whether or not you have included anything about RWD in them. Apologies if you have…

    I noticed that Code Boxers is responsive and also your company website is so you obviously know what you’re doing :) it’d be great to maybe get a better insight into that part of web development.

    Keep up the good work, man!

    @Watson90 – Ah sorry about that! The RWD side of things will be getting covered probably in video 7-8, I’ll be unleashing a custom variation of one of @chriscoyier‘s awesome mixins below;


    @mixin breakpoint($point) {
    @if $point == papa-bear {
    @media (max-width: 1600px) { @content; }
    }
    @else if $point == mama-bear {
    @media (max-width: 1250px) { @content; }
    }
    @else if $point == baby-bear {
    @media (max-width: 650px) { @content; }
    }
    }

    I would like if you showed how to use Kirby, Mabey a beginners guide.

    # January 14, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    @frijolito56 – Well it would definitely be a beginners guide – I’ve had a cursory look around it so definitely not experienced, so it would be me learning it from the ground up too!

    I spent some time watching a single video of yours last night and was able to convert my blog comments into SCSS. So effing simple.

    I think what I like the most about Sass is that you can make it as complex or as simple as you want.

    Variables will cover most scenarios, extends for repeating styles and mixins for calculations or if statements.

    Compass is really the icing on top so you don’t have to repeat and maintain loads of vendor prefixes.

    Sweet! I’d like to see you do some SASS/Codekit specific videos

    As for the time issue you mentioned, I’d stick with longer videos for project tuts and shorter ones that get straight to the point for specific tasks

    # January 17, 2013 at 4:32 am

    @karlpcrowley – Thanks for your feedback mate, will definitely put together some application specific videos next.

    # February 15, 2013 at 5:26 am

    Hooray, 2 new videos up as we ramp up and get ready for WordPress.

    Thanks to @chrisburton I decided to do a double video this time, so it’s around 15-20 mins each, or 40 if you watch them one after another!

    With regards to length I suppose its balancing who gets more annoyed. People who like longer screencasts probably find it less annoying to click Next Video than people who don’t like long screencasts. So, while I prefer 20-30min screencasts, I won’t get annoyed at clicking next when it ends at 10 mins (as long as there isn’t a massive intro as @chrisburton said).

    One thing I’d suggest is explaining and maybe giving a link to any addons/plugins you use in your programs, as it can be quite confusing when screencast authors forget to do this.

    I’ve only watched the first half of part 1 but I’m definitely going to go through the series, cheers for making them!

    @patrickzdb – Absolutely, that’s what I’ve done with Part 8 (1&2) it’s a double length one but cut into 15-20 min chunks.

    Regarding plugins and stuff, absolutely, the only real one that I’m using that others may not have is Emmet and the package manager on Sublime but I covered those in an earlier video.

    That being said, I’ll be using Git Tower in the next one so will provide links and info on it.
