  • Hi,

    make sure your talk is recorded and made availlable online for all of us who can't come.

    • My company is planning to do the presentation capture and production for YAPC::NA this year. Here's an early sample of what the content might look like: []
      • That looks really interesting.

        How does it handle being overloaded?

        For example, my current generation of talks (one big one, and three or four lightning talks) average out at around a "slide" every 6 seconds. So that's something like 220 slides for the 50 minute talk.

        And after realising that the talks are getting closer and closer to being a video, this year I'm going to try something unusual and include ACTUAL video. The big PITA talk, at 80 minutes long, is expected to have 15-20 minutes of TV-quality vide
        • 220 slides is fine. We can easily support a slide every 2 seconds with the current technology, and we've got further enhancements in the works.

          As for video, we're working toward that. One of our present solutions is to use a subclass of Net::VNC to capture local screen video. Those can then be converted to QuickTime movies or a series of image files for the resulting presentation. We're currently capturing at about 5 fps for typical desktop app motion, but there are certainly improvements to be made.
