This is gonna sound funny coming from a guy who sells video training, but I hate watching videos.
I have no idea if they’re gonna be any good, or what they’re going to cover. I don’t want to invest my time without having at least a rough idea of what’s going on, and the video title/abstract/description doesn’t always reflect that accurately.
So I’m the kind of person who’d rather skim the transcription first.
I figure I’m not the one out there, so we’re doing killer session transcriptions of everything.
For an example, check out Bob Ward’s session, SQL Server 2016: It Just Runs Faster. It’s over thirteen thousand words. (Bob talks really quickly.) Our heroic transcriptionist does the bulk of the work, giving us a huge wall of text.
The next step, editing, is adding section headers and a few screenshots. That’s where you come in, dear reader: I’m looking for volunteer editors who can help with that from time to time. It’s roughly a 1-hour task per session, and the nice part is that it can be done at any time that works for you.
If you’re interested, leave a comment in this forum thread, where we’re discussing it in more detail.
