I’ve been giving some thought about sponsoring a monthly Real Studio webinar (I hate that name, by the way). Either making it part of the Subscription Video Series I have available on the BKeeney Website or just limiting it to the first 20 or 30 people who show up on any given day.
If you were interested in that sort of thing, would you prefer:
- That we (BKeeney Software) set the topic a week or so in advance and post it
- Allow the potential audience to submit questions beforehand and we pick the ones we want to cover
- Do an ad-hoc question and answer session the day of the seminar
- Combination of 1, 2, 3
- Something completely different
From my standpoint, #1 is the easiest for me. #2 isn’t so bad and #3 has disaster written all over it due to the randomness involved. I could see some wise-guy showing up and asking me to code something and then criticize me for a) being slow or b) doing it in a way they wouldn’t (meaning they knew how to code it to begin with).
I could see recording them and serving them up for later playback. I could also see using these as opportunities to explore some of the 3rd party controls and libraries out there and inviting their developers on to talk about them. Regardless, I think this is an area that could use some exploration.
So before I go down the proverbial rabbit hole on this, what say you? What am I not thinking about?
