I'm hoping to do some screecasts on various technical subjects. As I do them, they will appear here.

d-i code swarm

I generated a code swarm animation of commits to the d-i project with help from Frans Pop. I had planned to set it to music, but never got the chance. Instead, Christian Perrier used it during a lightning talk at DebConf9, and provided great commentary on the events shown in it.

I combined video of Christian's talk with higher-quality excerpts of my original code swarm video to produce this.

ikiwiki cgi and git

This 15 minute screencast builds on the first, showing how to use a setup file to make ikiwiki support web edits via CGI, and how to use git with ikiwiki.

This is a bit out of date now; ikiwiki's tutorial explains a more automated way to set up a wiki or blog.
