My new series on how to Understand SQL, using Lego.
…and I think you’ll be interested in it because…
It’s a different way to express SQL. When I’ve told people, they said it’s a novel approach that they hadn’t seen before.
However, I’m not here to just tell you about these videos.
I’m also here to explain how easy it has been for me to make these videos.
If you aren’t used to the Shorts format on YouTube, they are videos up to 60 seconds long, recorded in portrait format. You can record and upload them directly from the YouTube app on your phone.
I edit them on my computer first, and use extra resources to add subtitles, make thumbnails, and so forth.
In 20 minutes, I have gone from recording the video, to getting it edited and uploaded.
The ever supportive @simon_tomes reached out, and suggested letting you all know how easy it is to make these videos, to encourage you to make your own shorts.
60 seconds goes really fast, but also means if you feel you wouldn’t be able to even fill a 99 second talk at TestBash, give yourself only a minute.
For those of you who did Racket, I get the same energy from it, and whilst I can’t go into the same detail I would as I did with that, it’s fast. It’s also good experience if you want to dip your toe into recording videos, which may be in addition to blogging or any other media you make, or even your first go.
Is there something on your mind you want to put out there?
Make a short!
Is there something you want others to put out there?
Say here, and maybe someone will be inspired to make it.
Let me know what you think below.
