REALlybasic is a series of podcasts about REALbasic and other things. On the subject of REALbasic the emphasis will be to answer common questions asked by beginners, especially regarding what to look out for when coding cross-platform. However from time to time I want to include other subjects too which have nothing to do with programming. Let’s see where we get to ;-)

You might notice the “Donate” button - making a video tutorial is a lot of fun, but it is also a LOT of work. Just to give you an idea in what is involved in making a video tutorial (and after taking some suggestions on board):

  • reading up on the subject to get to know more about it (basically you end up with knowing more than you need or want to know)
  • make a very detailed and logically structured story-line
  • make diagrams to illustrate complex points
  • find suitable graphics
  • search for and buy a cheap noise-canceling microphone
  • set up all folders and files and programs as needed
  • record the screencast (you might need more than one try)
  • cut the screencast (remove blunders etc)
  • find, buy, install, and get to grips with software which lets you do more than just record the screen
  • write out the complete spoken text to make subtitles for the hearing impaired
  • translate it into german (not everyone is fluent in English) and record a german voice-over
  • write out the complete german spoken text to make subtitles for the german hearing impaired
  • etc etc

You should see the difference after I remade Episode 1 ;-)
