Blast Mojo Tutorial (Episode 2): How to build a Hello World application
I've been playing around with ScreenFlow.app for a while now and I recently started becoming more and more passionate about creating tutorials for aspiring web programmers. Even though this is just my first tutorial video (doing random episodes before I do episode one, as episode one will be quite heavy on the theory portion of Blast Mojo), I've learned a few things:
- Use a higher zoom on TextMate so that the viewers can see the code more clearly
- Use better transitions in between cuts, it seemed very jagged playing it through
- Be consistent--you'll see that iTunes appears in the 2nd take
- Increase microphone volume, the music started to overtake my narratives
Episode 3 will go over using the Service Locator, invoking a web service, and displaying data. Stay tuned for it next week!
