We have been running an experiment for the past few months: if we host a weekly online webinar, will anyone show up?
We – the Database Developer Tools team, mostly – want to try different things, find different ways to reach new developers and make Oracle Database as approachable as possible.
For example, this week Product Manager Melli Annamalai – she is a BIG DATA expert, so don’t miss this one!!! – will be doing a talk on loading Hadoop data to Oracle Database.
Each week’s session is recorded and posted to YouTube. Here’s the playlist:
I’d like to lean towards shorter sessions. Getting and KEEPING someone’s attention for more than 30 minutes can be a huge challenge, if not even impossible.
But then going too short might make it harder for people to commit to watching and participating ‘live.’ Or maybe we should just record and produce straight to YouTube – but then you don’t get a chance to actually communicate ‘live’ with the presenter.
What say you? Does this provide any value? If so, what topics would you like to see covered going forward?
You can find the location of this in the ad to the right, and I have it linked in the first sentence of this post…
