Progress. We have 2 videos which are presentation ready. The Demo video we recorded 5 times and the Quick Start video 3+ times. It's taken multiple iterations. Nobody listens to videos with bad audio but it takes the right set up to get it right, now we know. The editing, audio/visual and everything was done by a friend and colleague. The Demo video is meant as a companion to the SqlServerCentral article (which will be submitted when there's a relaunched website for my employer (consulting company). All of the assets for the site have been delivered, I'm told, so it's just a matter of time.
Besides appealing directly to SQL experts the goal is for the library to be "discoverable" by people looking for a data access solution. To go along with the SSC article(s) (and video(s)) we have Github repo(s) which still need final updates. Now that the 2 videos are "finalized" we can move forward in these other areas.
The plan for video(s) is as follows:
- A New Approach to Data Access - Demonstration (companion to SSC article, done)
- Quick Start (done)
- Beyond the Demo Part 1: Resource Filter (recorded 1-time, needs to be redone)
- Beyond the Demo Part 2: Context Direct (ready to record)
- Beyond the Demo Part 3: Dependency Injection (DI) Client (ready to record)
- Introducing JsonAutoService (1 minute Splash video) (in process)
Demo (companion video to SSC article "A New Approach to Data Access")
It would be nice if this whole thing sprung up out of the ground already completed. It's not like that though. I'm committed to do whatever it takes. As SQL professionals we've all been shortchanged by the tools available for data access. The existing ORM solutions were written by server programmers to work the way they want it to work. That's a very big flaw. We need a data access approach that fully supports set based solutions and makes drastic improvements in speed, security, reliability, and workflow. Once JsonAutoService is explained to people I don't believe they'll use other approaches. The old way, which is the current way, is counterproductive in comparison.
