Animated gif screencasts with LICEcap

Yesterday, we learned how to create a pool a servers behind a load balancer, on Google Compute Engine.

I used a tool called LICEcap to capture the output of the console to an animated gif. It’s nice seeing that everything is fully automated!

Setup load balancing

This tool is not suited for every screencast. For example, I found it hard to add annotations. Still, it’s a very simple way of creating small tutorials.
