As a relatively conventional book, the KDE manual was probably a little easier to write (but also probably less fun) than the more high-level approaches taken by some other teams that were trying to demonstrate to potential customers that their projects were worth adopting.

New Tutorials from George Jardine

By Gene McCullagh
October 24, 2010

Well George Jardine is back with a new set of video tutorials on the Develop module in Lightroom 3! George was kind enough to let me review the series.

He crafts his presentations to make sure that the viewer is both entertained and informed. Don't take my word for it. Go and see for yourself. Click here to view one of the tutorials in its entirety. George covers the features that are new in Lightroom 3 in great detail including sharpening and noise reduction, lens profiles, new raw processing and more.

Training Lessons Learned: Interactivity (Selena Marie Deckelmann) -- again I see parallels between how the best school teachers work and the best trainers. I was working with a group of people with diverse IT backgrounds, and often, I asked individuals to try to explain in their own words various terms (like “transaction”). This helped engage the students in a...

Do You Speak Flex? Part Two: Recruiting the Right Experience

0 September 9, 2009

It’s imperative to identify what your requirements are and the number of resources that you’ll need to address them.

The computer field is still in the kindergarten stage of exploring serious questions of how people learn, questions at the center of psychology and pedagogy for many decades. Even those disciplines don't quite get it, because they're fumbling with the instant messaging culture that gives us so many more tools today for learning together.

December 13, 2008

Creative Commons is more dependent than ever before on the funds of individuals. More and more people these days are grabbing pictures, text, and other random goods they find online and using them in their own presentations or creative efforts; some of us even build businesses on open contributions. All of us should be promoting the Creative Commons, which has provided licenses to support such sharing in 50 countries and is working with people in many more.

By David Tucker
July 14, 2008

My recent Lynda.com series, AIR for Flash Developers, was recently released in the Lynda.com Online Training Library. In this series, I cover most all of the AIR API and how to integrate it with your Flash files. As I stated on my blog, this series is not for everyone. It does require a working knowledge of ActionScript 3 and Flash CS3. However, if you need to brush up on these skills, Lynda.com provides additional series that cover most every aspect of Flash and ActionScript training.
