This week on our panel, we have Jamison Dance.JAMISON: Hello.CHUCK: Joe Eames.JOE: Hey there.CHUCK: I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.TV. And this week, we’re going to be talking about screencasting and sharing what you know through that kind of a visual medium. Before we get going, I’m wondering how much of this have you guys done?JAMISON: None.JOE: [Chuckles] I’ve done a fair amount. I’ve got my three courses with Pluralsight that I’ve done. That’s pretty much all the screencasting that I’ve done, is through Pluralsight. But I have to say I’ve definitely done a fair amount, several hundred, maybe a thousand with the screencasting.CHUCK: Nice.JAMISON: When you say a thousand hours, do you mean a thousand hours of recorded video or a thousand hours of time put into this?JOE: Yeah, a thousand hours of time actually spent. So I’ve probably produced ten or fifteen hours of recorded video. Probably about that much and five or six hundred hours of time spent producing that much video, right around that.CHUCK: Well there you go. If you’ve read outliers, you know you have nine thousand hours to go, right?JOE: [Chuckles] Yeah. Exactly when I’ll be an expert.CHUCK: That’s right. I’ve done a fair bit of screencasting as well. In fact, I got into podcasting through screencasting and I ran TeachMeToCode.com for a few years. I’m actually looking at reviving it but it’s just some time that I haven’t been able to commit yet. But yeah, it’s definitely a fun and interesting thing to do to share what you know and get the word out about whatever technologies you’re passionate about.
