I redid the recording for video 3 today. In addition, I loaded video 2 onto YouTube. Here is Video 2 which goes through installing the Java JDK and JRE. These are critical and fundamental steps to complete before you start your programming journey in Java.
Recording these videos and narrating them is pretty challenging. I am a naturally “lazy” or casual speaker (i get accused of sounding like Norm McDonald often) and I use a lot “uhhs” and “umms” as part of my nuanced/charming style. At any rate, I am making an effort to bring a little energy to these videos. The material can be dry, so it seems obligatory to punch it up a bit. Likely failing miserably, but that is okay by me – I will learn and adjust.
