Finding Joy in Making Happy Little Computer Videos on YouTube
We're all remote and it's sad, but I've found some new joy of late in rebooting my little low-traffic newsletter AND making YouTube videos when the kids are asleep. You can go subscribe to my YouTube now and I encourage you to explore the Playlists.
I'm enjoying doing videos on topics like:
- How to be more effective with Windows, Visual Studio, WSL, etc.
- How to be more effective with Office
- How to make your own virtual presentations/talks and work remotely
- How to set up a home studio on a budget
- Computer Stuff They Didn't Teach You
Here's some very recent videos I'm proud of!
- How to do a Greenscreen easily in 10 min for $75 with OBS and good lighting
- Budget VR with Oculus Quest and Virtual Desktop for Wireless VR
- How to set up an awesome prompt with your Git Branch, Windows Terminal, PowerShell, + Cascadia Code!
- Windows Terminal Feature PREVIEW - Customize your keybindings, color tabs, split panes, and MORE!
Learning Git 101
But the Videos that people really seem to have enjoyed (which was surprising to me) was in this Playlist on "Computer Stuff They Didn't Teach You."
They are simple, calm, and quiet. Virtually no editing - it's all done in one shot - and I explain various topics around computers. Only one person complained that my voice made them fall asleep, so that's good!
I'll be updating videos more often while it remains enjoyable and folks appreciate it. I will try to do some more Git videos soon on squashing, cherry picking, rebasing, and maintaining your branch while main keeps moving forward.
I hope you enjoy them!
