Update(May 2007) Update: I am not updating my Vuze page anymore. Instead the videos at ShowMeDo contain the latest comments and any future updates.
Update: VLC player on the Mac works fine with the .MOV files. I don’t know about other platforms
Clarification: Approximately 1 minute 58 seconds into the second movie, I talk about the “part where you encounter them first”. I’m not sure that’s accurate. If you just remember to let the interpreter know about instance variables by initializing them in the constructor(def init), you should be fine. Just define your class variables before def init
I created these late at night, so let me know of inaccuracies. These should work fine with QuickTime player(I don’t think VLC player supports the encoding for these particular files and I don’t recommend using VLC for these videos, as it crashed).
The first part deals with basic Ruby for people already familiar with Object Oriented Programming. The second part discusses the bioinformatics code I dabbled with.
Unfortunately, downloading the movie automatically installs Azureus. You can uninstall Azureus if you want, after you are finished downloading.
You may also notice that I proceed slowly in these screencasts. I’ll write down detailed scripts to proceed more quickly in the future :p
