YAPC::NA 2006 videos online

Journal written by ChrisDolan (2855) and posted by brian_d_foy on 2006.11.10 9:10   Printer-friendly

Just in time for the Chicago Hackathon, I'm releasing the first YAPC::NA 2006 videos.

This release is the first 5 video-narrated presentations. More videos will be released in the coming weeks. Subscribe to the Atom or iTunes feed to get them when they're hot.

These videos include the slides captured directly from the speaker's laptop to maximize the like-being-thereness. The presentations were captured with my company's pre-release software. Much thanks are due to Requisite Variety who generously volunteered their videography services at the conference!

If you are a Bittorrent aficionado, please consider seeding the videos! The .torrent files are conveniently bundled in a tarball. To mirror, create an empty folder, unpack that archive in it, and run: btlaunchmanycurses.py.

  • Excellent, Chris. Thanks a bunch!

  • My Windows BitTorrent client from bittorrent.com refuses to touch your files saying: q["C:\Docu...mp4.torrent" is not a valid torrent file (not a valid bencoded string).]
  • That Atom feed is somewhat suboptimal.

    • type="text" is basically just inline text. You should expect no particular formatting. (Saying type="text" is the same as omitting it altogether, btw.) Using type="text/plain" is more appropriate in that case. Note however that this is only valid for the <content> element. Your most interoperable bet is to stick the whole thing in type="html" with <pre> tags in the HTML.

    • Further, you could include <link rel="enclosure" ... /> links in the entrie

    • Thanks VERY much for the feedback. I fixed the content tag. I will also add the enclosure links in the next version.

      Man, I've really learned a lot in this project!!!
