The goal of the SwitchYard video series is to augment the project documentation set with live video explanations, demonstrations, and walkthroughs of topics related to SwitchYard. The first set of videos in the series are oriented around where to get started, how to install and run SwitchYard and sample applications, and how to create your own applications.
We Need Your Help!
The project team would like to grow the number of videos in this series and to make the videos we have as useful as possible. If you have an idea on another video that would help you (and others) out, then please let us know. There are two ways to get this done:
- The preferred route would be to file a JIRA against the project. The component should be set to "docs" and please be sure to use the "video-series" label so that we can track and schedule these.
- Leave a comment on this article with your idea.
