I’ve been working on plans for web development Youtube content this week. I’m hoping to extend it to game development at some point, but I’m focusing on my strengths for now.
I’ve also started streaming developer sessions again, which will continue and cover both web and game development.
📆 Note: I've locked in a streaming schedule. Sundays at 3:00 - 5:00 PM and Wednesdays at 7:00 - 9:00 PM.
JS Tutorial Planning
My planning so far has involved breaking out topics and scripting the dialogue/narration. So far there are four higher-level topics: Variables, Control Flow, Functions, and Scope.
I’m happy with what I’ve broken out so far, but there’s still a ways to go to make the content unique from what’s already out there (the web development topic on Youtube is pretty saturated).
The most challenging of things to figure out is actually how I want to present the content. I still don’t have a clear idea of the approach and style I want to take.
Presentation is especially going to be difficult for me, I tend to be very mono-tone and over-complicate my explanations. This is actually one of the reasons I want to create this content, so I can improve how I present information.
Like I mentioned, channels that cover the web development topic on Youtube is pretty saturated. This will make discovery more difficult and I also feel like I’ll be duplicating topics with content (my stuff) that is a lower quality.
I spent time this weekend to get a better idea of the Youtube scene to help see what others are doing and get a better idea of where I’ll fit.
Of the videos I watched, half were pro-tips for developers that already had some experience and the other half were breaking into the web development industry.
One thing I would like to note is how much I love to see people getting into development and showing a passion for working with software.
So yep, made some good progress in getting a feel for the web development community on Youtube, and also have made some progress on my tutorial outline.
A goal in the upcoming weeks is to find how I want to present the tutorial information. I’m looking for something engaging but still me.
With that, I’ll end this post with an artist I came across over the weekend. Take care out there and happy creating!
