In order for people to understand what toolkits are all about and what they are caapble of we need to see examples of actual toolkits working.

OK, how about this for a list of videos we need to start with:

  1. Installing VSPAT from the Visual Studio Gallery - how to find, install and verify installation. Where the extensions are viewed in Extension Manager.
  2. First look at VSPAT - finding and installing the MVCPAT toolkit, and first look at the new 'Solution Builder' window and guidance in the 'Guidance Explorer', 'Guidance Browser' windows, demonstrating the new tool windows, how to view guidance, how to use an installed toolkit.
  3. Learning VSPAT with Lab - How to install the HOL, how to create the Lab, and getting started with the lab.
  4. Creating Your First Toolkit - (following the lab) explaining the basic concepts to toolkit building, creating a simple pattern model, and running the toolkit
  5. Defining your Solution - demonstrate adding, associating and unfolding project templates, item templates and text templates in the toolkit.
  6. Automating your Solution - demonstrate some fo the basic built-in automation for managing your solution, adding simple custom automation.
  7. Customizing a Toolkit? - taking an existing toolkit and making it your own, by customizing variosu aspects and assets.
  8. Extending a Toolkit? - adding an extension point, and building another toolkit that plugs into it
  9. ??

I think the format of these videos should short and informal, and full screens shots, with audio dub over the top. No shots of author, no long introductions, and no credits.

We need someone with a good demo voice, and who is good on the keyboard and mouse, and proficient with Zoomin (or equivalent).
