One of my colleagues said that if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth ten thousand. Taking that notion to heart, I thought that maybe instead of having a very long document with a screenshot for every step, people might prefer a much shorter document with an embedded video for every procedure.
It was time to update the Quick-Start Tutorial for Horizon Cloud anyway, so that document got the first makeover treatment, including changing the title to “Evaluation Guide for …” rather than “Quick-Start” because, let’s face it, the 88 pages it had did not constitute a quick start.
The new has half the page count, at 40 pages in PDF form. The 14 embedded videos are each 3–6 minutes long, and cover everything from deploying a pod to configuring the Horizon Universal Broker and exporting reports. The video format also features animated diagrams, in dark mode.
