They've got a whole studio there so we spent the whole day presenting LIVE. There were several thousand folks watching live and interacting with

Very special thanks to Brady Gaster and ASP.NET community members Scott Koon, Peter Mourfield, and Rob Chartier who were furiously handling questions in the chats! Your volunteerism and dedication to the community is deeply appreciated! Let's give them a hand, eh?

The Missing Windows 8 Instructional Video

January 12, '13 Comments [68] Posted in Screencasts | Win8
Sponsored By

A few months ago while sitting at a Burger King (yes, I know) I recorded a video on "How to use Windows 8 in 3 minutes" and threw it up on YouTube. It's been viewed nearly a half million times. Eek. It's got poor audio, and it's WAY too fast. I did it on a goof. However, people keep showing it to family and friends.

A man emailed me after sending it to his elderly uncle and let's just say that the uncle wasn't impressed with the speed of the video either. It's great for geeks but not for normal people.

So tonight I took a few hours and did a new video that I'm VERY happy with and I hope you enjoy it. It's clean, clear, and only 25 minutes long and it explains, I believe, Windows 8 and its changes for anyone with basic Windows experience.

I hope you like it and you share it with family and friends. Also check out the related posts at the bottom.

VIDEO: The Art of Speaking - with Scott Hanselman

December 9, '11 Comments [25] Posted in Screencasts | Speaking

The Art of Speaking with Scott HanselmanIt all started in high school with Musical Theatre. Then it continued when I was teaching as an Adjunct Professor at a State University. I like talking to people. Now I've been doing it for 20 years (25 if you count "My Fair Lady").

While I've had an opportunity to share some tips and tricks for speaking over the years on my blog, I've never really felt the information was organized. I've presented on presenting, but never assembled courseware. I've written many posts on the subject, but never created an e-book. The information is here and there, but not well, ahem, presented.

Then Rob Conery came to me with the idea of a polished 1 hour video where he asks me to speak on an unfamiliar topic, I research and build the talk, then present on the spot. All filmed, all real, all legit. It was too good an idea to pass up. Complete with interviews, examples, demos, how I design story arc, my thought process - applied.

We did it.

I'm sincerely thrilled to share the results with you today. A lot of hard work late at night, hours of thought, more hours of editing, and a little TekPub magic later and we can happily bring you my first TekPub video (UPDATE: Now Pluralsight) "The Art of Speaking - with Scott Hanselman."

Perhaps you've given technical speeches at work and are considering a local user group. Maybe you've spoken at code camps and want to go national or international. Or, perhaps you'd just like to be more comfortable talking to the folks at your office and presenting to the boss.

It's included with your TekPub annual or monthly subscription or you can just buy the one video. It's packed with information and it's got that polish that TekPub is known for. Rob and I feel that this one hour documentary style video is a great introduction into the minds of a technical speaker with not only experience, but passion for the topic.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Video Trip Report: If this is Tuesday, this must be Cairo

This last week over a 7 day period, I went to Munich, Cairo and Dubai. I presented in three keynotes and did a total of 10 sessions. I crossed 12 time zones and missed my kids. I talked to/with/at about 3000 people.

I'm utterly shattered.

I took some video while I was travelling with my Creative Vado HD and slapped it into Windows Live Movie Maker just now. Here's my trip montage.

You could call this either "The Glamourous Life of a Technical Speaker" or "If this is Tuesday, this must be Cairo" or "Scott needs to learn to say No."

It was great fun, I spoke at VSOne in Munich. I talked about .NET 4 and ASP.NET MVC. We also had a nice Nerd Dinnner. Then I headed over to Cairo Code Camp and the turnout was HUGE. Something like 700-800 folks showed up at the German University in Cairo. I also recorded a great podcast on Women in Technology in the Muslim World. Then I headed to Dubai for TechEd Middle East where I presented in three sessions and did the keynote demo for Soma. It's always a challenge for me to travel because of my diabetes, particularly because of the time zones but also sitting for 16 hours at a time in a plane and eating plane food is a problematic. However, I must say that everyone on this trip was incredibly kind and accommodating.

If you have the chance to go to Munich, Cairo, and/or Dubai, I highly recommend it. The people, the places and the technologists are all top-notch.

Enjoy.

P.S. Thanks to http://blog.bloggingitloud.com/ for the guerilla footage of the TechEdME Keynote.

Fun with Channel 9 Videos - Live at PDC and Live to Tape

December 7, '09 Comments [4] Posted in PDC | Screencasts | Speaking

image One of the things I was lucky to do at PDC 09 a few weeks ago was host a "talk show." The folks at Channel 9 hooked up some amazing equipment and a great team and had basically 8 solid hours of live television streaming (over Silverlight and IIS Smooth Streaming) every day using the Professional Developer's Conference.

I had an hour or so each day over the three day conference, usually around the lunch hour. Some guests were fun, some were more challenging, but I tell you - after having done stand-up (and kind of failed), doing code demos and powerpoint for years, hosting panels and roundtables, I think I'm supposed to be hosting my own talk show. ;) If I had more creative control (and wasn't working for The Man) I'd love to take on Craig Ferguson or Jimmy Fallon. What a blast!

Anyway, Nic and the team at Channel 9 are busy transcoding and chopping out many hours of videos and putting them up on Channel 9 under the "ch9live" tag.

Two of my segments are up so far, but there's a dozen segments with lots of great hosts like Charles Torre and Robert Hess. One day they'll let me near Ozzie, but this time I got to sit down with Bob Muglia and the deeply awesome Mike Anguilo. Mike is the GM dude that designed the laptop that all the PDC attendees took him. Even though I was nice to him, he didn't give me a laptop. Sigh.

Here's some video. I'll post more as it comes up, and be sure to check out the whole set as more are going up each day. Here's the complete Live on Channel 9 schedule.

I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I had doing them. More to come soon! Maybe they'll let me be more wacky at Mix 2010!

Oh, other thing, last week Jon Galloway and I were up in Redmond for his New Employee Orientation (NEO) last week and we stopped by (crashed, really) "This Week on Channel 9."

This week on Channel 9, we're joined by Scott Hanselman and Jon Galloway to discuss the week's top developer news, including:

On the live side of things, Here's the other great segments from Channel 9 Live @ PDC as of the time of this post:

Enjoy!
