New Project: SQLMate 
Well, here we code again ...

One might have noted that I am somewhat obsessed with SQLite at the moment ... and for good reason: From Android to Big Data, we are using SQLite on every 'conceivable.

So when it came time for me to mass-generate a few hundred tables & DAO's recently, I decided to write yet another source code generator.

See the related link (below) for a tad more information.

DIY SQLite Videos ... and Inspiration? 

Where does it come from?

No matter what we believe sparks our brain-joy, surely we all can understand how inspiring words from others can help "make our day"?

So as I set my hand to sharing a few videos designed to help others use SQLite, when it came time to select a set of non-trivial data for demonstrating SQL data-management techniques, I was inspired to use the data from our own Mighty Maxims Project.

Almost forgetting that I also have a Mighty Maxims Book (sales have been "that good" ;-) here is our video Playlist.

So if you would like to learn how to use SQL, as well as SQLite, enjoy our free videos... I'll be glad you did! (lol)

And if you "like" and / or purchase the book, I'll SURELY know who you are (i.e. "THANKS MOM" ;)

Enjoy the Journey,

Staples Asks: How do you create professional videos for your small business? 
When it comes to using software products to create videos, I have used everything from YouCam, Camtasia, Camtasia Studio, Audacity, GIMP, as well as software that I have personally written in Java, Python, as well as C/C++.

At the moment, my final tool-chain uses one of several screen capture tools for screen-casts (lots of options there!) followed by Adobe Elements 11 + Audacity for the best quality voice-overs & final touches.

From a hardware point of view, I have migrated away from a Mac to use a maxed-out i7 running Windows, with the "Cowboy Studio" doing my at-home, in-house green screens.

Here is an example of a recent end result for Testing Success.

I agree - like the others in the thread - that having a top-notch microphone is the best place to invest! By way of an example, note how my free "VB.NET" training has suffered from audio quality problems. While the best solution would be to simply redo the training, recently I have re-discovered how Audacity will allow me to automatically clean-up these many hours of instruction. Since better-paying work is obviously completed before free, I usually find time to update such things over those multi-day holidays.
