Go Crash Course Video

I made my first "comprehensive" video tutorial relating to programming.

In this one I explain how to utilize the basic language features of go, as fast as I can, without making tons of mistakes.

I want to make more and better video tutorials like this one and would greatly appreciate any feedback about it.

If you liked it and want to know when I post more, be sure to subscribe and thank ya'll for taking the time to look over it!

Congrats on your first video tut! I like your style, and voice comes across clear.

Feedback:

  1. If your image was semi-transparent and smaller it would be less intrusive. It's good to see your hands as that's part of expression and helps, but takes real estate.

  2. Editor:
    a. Seems to be a current fad to have light blues, purples and reds, but I can barely distinguish them, let alone read them, especially on my phone.

b. When your line numbers change as you type, especially the ones above the cursor going backwards, is very jarring and confusing... Makes me lose track since you move fast.

c. If you could have a floating window or something to show your terminal output... When you jump back and forth between the editor and output so fast, it's very jarring to follow.

Keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to seeing more! Cheers!

Thank you very much for taking the time to watch it and write out this feedback.

I'll probably set up a seperate Neovim config for tutorials. That way it'll always use a "normal" colorscheme and turns off relativenumber.

I'll split my windows on the same workspace so that both the editor and terminal are visible.

I'll probably just make my webcam overlay smaller.

Great feedback, sorely needed haha

Your welcome, but not sorely needed! You have a natural flare for video teaching, but it's always hard to separate yourself. To help get yourself out of yourself, so to speak, make a video, and before editing or anything, watch it on your TV. Your not in front of a keyboard, analysing your code, just a guy that "came across this video". It will help put you in the audience chair. Take notes. Cheers man!

Sorry for late response. It's the idea to separate my huge .zshrc file into smaller ones

Ahhhh, yeah that can be useful if your zshrc is getting into the hundreds or thousands of lines
