Everyone. Let me know if this is too long. Would you prefer fewer demos? Would you prefer this was broken out into multiple episodes? If so, should they be posted one a week or more frequently? Or is this length fine from time to time?
@rogreen: I like having single long videos. I really dislike shorter videos spaced out over time. I often want to absorb and apply as much as I can when I'm looking at something new. The number of demos was fine, it showed a cross section of major features in an approachable way. I found the brief coverage of the generated code differences to be very useful. The only thing I can think of that would add a lot of convenience would be to list the times of the demos/subject coverage to the description so we can skip to what we're interested in. I was most interested in the two demos on CF but had to watch the other two in the middle. I had no idea that the last demo was even going to happen. A table of contents with times would resolve that wonder, especially in longer videos.
I think this is a fantastic idea! I was completely uninterested in programming when I first started using a WYSIWYG web editor. I was just making neat looking stuff I could show other people over good old Prodigy dialup interenet on my angelfire website.
It didn't take terribly long to realize there were things that could be done that I couldn't do in my WYSIWYG editor and I started looking up tutorials on neat stuff to do. At about the same time I was playing this game called RPG Maker or something similar.
No coding but there was a lot of figuring out logic and such, much of what I learned there I still use today. Here I am 10 years later and working on with a health information system company as developer. I had seen programming before all that, but never
been interested. I think it's important to give people as many methods as practically possible so that they can find an interest. -Max
