Video project

Intro to Programming video

I want to make a video to show my class of would-be IT people. If you write code, would you send me a video clip (webcam, less than 30s) with the following?

  • Introduce yourself (name, where you work)
  • Why you love what you do
  • Why you love open-source software (optional, but would be super helpful)

Email the clip (or a link I can download the clip) to bphogan at gmail and be sure to include your Twitter username so I can add that on your clip.

I'll take the videos and stitch them together so I can show my class. I want to get them fired up about our industry.

Deadline

How about Monday, September 17th, 2012?

What will happen?

Ideally I'd love to get a ton of people to share experiences with these students. And of course I'd post it publicly so everyone can benefit from it, not just me and my class.

What do you say?

Couldn't keep it down to 30 seconds, I'm afraid, but punchy nonetheless: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUpHk9hYIEE&feature=youtu.be

I use the YouTube download user script from GreaseMonkey. Works great in Chrome.

Just letting everyone know that this is almost done. A few of the vids people put on youtube are marked as private though so I can't get them.
