In this video with the rad Christina Warren, cloud developer advocate for Microsoft, we walk through about seven tips for creating technical content in a kind of rapid-fire back-and-forth of ideas. Recording this was great, as the way we did it presented us with a chance to put these ideas together like this. Both of us have presented and helped people out presenting a few more times than we've been able to keep count, so the crew leading this endeavor basically said to "start brainstorming" as if the show were live. We did that, and it worked rather well. Then the artists, animators, and crew went to work splicing and dicing the video into this watchable format! Lotsa fun — enjoy.

For each of these, I've elaborated on in the past.

Those 7 Tips for Creating Technical Content

  1. Always be learning!
  2. Know your audience.
  3. Bring ALL the connectors.
  4. Backup, backup, backup your presentations.
  5. Write continuously, regularly, and tell yourself a story.
  6. Try tutorials on a fresh machine.
  7. Observe how people create and present content.

Even more details on all these in the future.
