A Big Shout Out to all SQL Webcasters Out There

I just want to take this time to say “WOW” to all the great and even the not so great SQL Webcasters out there.  It is amazing the time and effort that goes into doing a webcast and feeling happy with the final product.  Tieing the powerpoint with the Management Studio, with the webcam video, with what you’re wanting to say and putting a nice bow around the whole thing is a HUGE undertaking.

So at the PASS Summit this year I’ll be buying a drink for some of the greats out there cause after finishing my first webcast (link coming soon) these guys make it look/sound effortless:

I hate doing a list like this cause I’m sure I’m missing some great webcasters but these were the first webcasters that popped into my head as being memerable and effective webcast presenters for one reason or another. 

This is NOT a Top 5 list (so save the hate mail saying I missed this person or that person) but simply a list of webcasters that if you haven’t seen a webcast from then you should take the time to do so.

Who is on your list??

  1. Excellent. Thanks for sharing. Hey, why don’t you turn this into a list of 10 and submit it to PASS. We need more top 10 lists. A top 10 web casts or web casters list would be cool.

  2. I think that’s an excellent idea BUT I’m not going to be begin to say I know the top 10 anything 🙂

    What I can do though is create a survey and allow people to pick their favorites webcasters and then submit THOSE results

    Like I said in my post I don’t want to exclude any great webcasters out there just because I haven’t seen alot or any of their videos.

  3. As a rule of thumb, I find that it typically takes around 1 hour of work for each minute of video produced. (i.e. an 8 minute video typically takes 8 hours to create/produce when you figure in the time to create a simple problem/test-environment, create any needed slides, mix audio and video, edit out bloopers, tweak sound levels, and so on).

    Yeah, you’re right, it’s an undertaking alright. The Mac-only product Screenflow makes the video side a lot easier (built-in audio mixing, editing, titles, exporting, etc) but there’s still a ton of work to do. I’m getting ready to ramp up another notch and try a two-camera setup with BoinxTV, but I’m leery of how much work it’s going to be!

  5. Lenovo’s enterprise group, which includes last year’s purchase of the System X business from IBM, posted a pretax loss of $45 million in the latest quarter on revenue of $1.1 billion U.S.
