VidCon 2017 – Day 2

Below is my update from Day 2 of VidCon 2017. As you’ll see, while I have experience with recording screen presentations I’m still learning the ins and outs of recording myself as video, especially in the audio department.

Bear with me, I’ve already ordered some new equipment to help in the audio world; as I continue to learn things will only get better. While I definitely plan to make screen capture style recordings (such as my PowerShell and XML video) the bulk of my content, I will be doing live presentations, such as this vlog, from time to time.

In the recording I mention several products I saw, the links for which are at the bottom of this post. I want to be clear that these are not paid promotions, nor did I receive any type of compensation. I was just impressed with them and wanted to share.

What’s Old Is New Again: Updating Arcanecode

I realized it has been far too long since I updated the look and feel of the blog. If you’re reading this, you can obviously now see the new look and feel.

Over to the right you can now see my Twitter feed. I post multiple stories daily of interest to the tech community.

I’ve also generated a new “About” page:

https://arcanecode.com/info

On it you’ll find my bio, plus links to all my social media accounts, including my github page where all my code samples now reside.

You’ll also find the link to the Facebook site for my company, Arcane Training and Consulting, where I post stories and discussions on a variety of technical subjects including SQL Server Business Intelligence, PowerShell, Azure, Security, and more.

In addition are links to all my Pluralsight courses, as well as the books I’ve co-authored.

Finally, I’m in the process of creating my own YouTube channels. While Pluralsight will host my long form training courses, ranging from one to six hours, YouTube will have very short videos focused on a specific topic. Ideally 15 minutes max so you can get answers quickly. Stay tuned for more as I get these published.

I did say channels, plural, as I’ve decided to make two YouTube channels. One will host only technical material for subjects such as PowerShell, Azure, SQL Server Business Intelligence, and the like.

The second will host videos for my hobbies, allowing me to post videos of a more personal interest such as Minecraft and Ham (Amateur) Radio. This will make it easier for people to digest the topics of interest to them.

I hope you enjoy the new format, and check back often.
