NHibernate DimeCasts.net Series

Derik Whittaker and his band of merry video elves over at DimeCasts.net have posted the 0th of about 5 parts to an NHibernate draft run-through presentation I did with a few of my colleagues.

It was part of a presentation I was preparing to give for the ill-fated Houston TechFest ‘08.  I wanted to do a draft run-through for a sympathetic audience to get critical feedback. The quality isn’t that great and I wasn’t in full “presentation mode.”

After showing it to Derik, though he urged me to release it publicly saying that people will still get a lot of benefit from it.

If you’re interested in NHibernate, but haven’t really had the time to dig into it, I think these videos will at least give you the basics to understand what’s going on.  Hopefully it helps someone!

  • Thanks for the video. I will be watching it real shortly – NHibernate has been on my to-learn list for some time, and I should at least get a grip on the basics.

    That site has been a good source of information recently – keep it coming!

  • Chad,

    I gotta say i think you did a nice job on the episodes and I am glad you allowed me to post them.

    “I wasn’t in full ‘presentation mode.’”

    Chuckling over what that could mean (I’m picturing a costume and a little soft-shoe).

    Looking forward to watching them.

  • @jdn:

    The “um” to content ratio is pretty poor.

    Also, I was skyping and sharedviewing with a few other people, so they would stop and ask questions which don’t show up in the audio, so I had to do some voice overs, yadda yadda.

    Anyhow, it’s not the greatest, but hopefully still useful!

    I’d love to hear your feedback.

  • Well, I can’t say much to the audio – I am hard of hearing and generally don’t hear much if any audio on those videos. But that’s okay, there are plenty of sources for this information.

    I do still like the videos though, as they are more engaging than reading page after page of articles on the same material.

  • Hi,

    The videos are fantastic. It would be great though if you could post the full source code for the project the videos were based on as the video’s jumped around a bit and you couldn’t quite see everything to type it up yourself (maybe this is just me).

  • @jason:

    No problem. I’ll try to get that up tonight or at least this weekend. I’ll post a link on my blog. Stay tuned.
