What is pyvideo.org

pyvideo.org is an index of Python-related videos on the Internet. For the most part, it's a collection of videos from Python-related conferences. Saw a session you liked and want to share it? It's likely you can find it, watch it, and share it with pyvideo.org.

PyCon US 2012 status

Just got back from PyCon US 2012. It was really great conference this year. If you weren't there, video from the conference is being posted to YouTube and indexed at pyvideo.org.

There were a lot of really great sessions. Here are ones I liked and/or were really proud of.

  1. Stormy's keynote: http://pyvideo.org/video/625/keynote-stormy-peters-mozilla-corporation
  2. GNU MediaGoblin poster session: http://pyvideo.org/video/725/40-media-goblin-the-road-to-federation
  3. Erik Rose's Speedily Practical Large Scale Tests: http://pyvideo.org/video/634/speedily-practical-large-scale-tests
  4. Jess and Asheesh's Diversity in Practice: http://pyvideo.org/video/719/diversity-in-practice-how-the-boston-python-user
  5. Karen's Improving Documentation With "Beginners Mind": http://pyvideo.org/video/713/improving-documentation-with-beginners-mind-o

There are lots of others, now that I'm skimming through the list.

I reindexed the site just now, so search should work for PyCon US 2012 videos again (thank you Stormy for the heads-up!). Carl's still posting things, so it's possible if something that you're looking for isn't there now, it'll show up soon. Also, all these videos are wrapped in Universal Subtitles widgets---if you have some spare time and wanted to tackle a video, that'd be awesome!

If you find problems with the site (it's not hard--they're everywhere), send me email and let me know.

The plan

I just got home and I need to catch up with work. My immediate plan is to fix the software and deployment scripts so I don't epically screw up the site again. (I'm really sorry about that.)

After that, I want to implement feeds---that's a much requested feature (and for good reason).

After that, I'll be fixing the myriad of other issues with the software and the site. I'm tracking issues in the pmc issue tracker and the richard issue tracker ("pmc" stands for Python Miro Community and is the github repository I've been using for the site for a while now---now it covers pyvideo.org stuff---and "richard" is the software that runs pyvideo.org).
