Course Description

Have you ever wanted to be a radio DJ? I know it was something I dreamed of growing up..

Welcome to the world of Podcasting. Online dictionaries have the following definition of podcast :

"a digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or portable media player, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically."

which defines it completely. Its a downloadable audio file but its more than that. Its your show. Your audio show. You radio show.

Podcasts can be used to get your idea across. Maybe you have something to say. Podcasts can be used to advertise; some make livings from selling advertising in their popular podcasts.

Instructor Biography

Sean McCammon, Software Engineer, Webpage Developer and Scrum Master

Developer, Video Creator, Podcaster and Mentor. Just 4 titles that could describe me and what I do.

I’ve been working in the IT industry for 18 years now and have worked as a Developer, Scrum Master and Team Leader. I’ve also been a student of many as well as mentored many others during that time.

I’ve created video content on YouTube; some popular and some not so. This helped me in gaining the experience to creating good video content for my training courses.

I’ve also spent some time creating podcasts over the years; more recently with a new podcast related to ‘Geekz Talk’(just a plug). – giving me yet more gain and experience on giving content to people and providing more for everyone who is looking for extra content.

I’m here to give to you my experience; my industry lesson learnt and my voice to help you move forward in the subject you want to learn.
