All PyCon 2009 Videos Uploading

The video team has pulled the trigger and all the video from the conference is being uploaded now. At the time of this post about 14 talks are now online. By the end of the day Friday, almost everything should be available (with a few minor exceptions). The videos are also integrated into the PyCon Schedule App as well, with a minor lag time. Just look for the tiny video icon: .

Congratulations to the entire PyCon US 2009 volunteer video team for performing this Herculean task. In total 2.2TB of video, covering 168 hours of material, were collected, edited, transcoded, and uploaded. This is divided into 96 hours from the tutorials and 72 hours from the main conference.

Great job Doug and the whole video team. Thanks for your excellent efforts!

I would love to talk some of the credit for the video, but to be honest I had nothing to do with it. I am just the messenger because the video team is all asleep (for the first time in days).

wow 168 hrs of videos!! great job guys.Any plan to add making of PyCon2009 videos anywhere so the we can see these guys at one place?

Wonderful! I think the openness of PyCon is one of the most amazing things about Python. I think blip is a good choice: the videos look very good, and I especially appreciate the ability to easily download a copy of videos. Best of all, the way all the videos are collected together and linked from the schedule is very slick and a huge improvement from the scattered videos of other years.

Thanks to all involved!

@rajkumar: The video crew did make a "how to record videos" video, which will be posted eventually. Is that what you meant?
rajkumar said…
@David Goodger : No,like a teaser - Behind the scene videos.
David Goodger said…
@rajkumar: They have a bit of that as well. It's a video of people shooting a video. You can watch it side-by-side with the main video itself.

I was just told that we do have some behind-the-scenes video as well. It will require some editing and post-processing though, so may take a while to show up.

This is great stuff. I was curious, will the tutorials also be posted. I've watched several, already
David Goodger said…
@Anonymous: Yes, videos from the tutorials will be published also. However, they will take longer because: (a) we're hitting the daily upload limit on blip.tv; and (b) the tutorial videos are much larger than talk videos (~1GB vs. ~200MB), and that hits other limits. So please be patient.

Thanks for the response. That is great to hear. I still have plenty to watch, till they are posted.

Any progress on getting the tutorials uploaded?

Tutorials should be up ASAP - we've had to deal with some technical issues (a/v sync issues) but we believe we have them mostly resolved now.

PyCon 2018 Call for Proposals is Open!

It’s here! PyCon 2018’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, and education summit presentations. PyCon is made by you, so we need you to share what you’re working on, how you’re working on it, what you’ve learned, what you’re learning, and so much more.

Before we dive in, the deadlines:
Tutorial proposals are due November 24, 2017.Talk, Poster, and Education Summit proposals are due January 3, 2018.Who should write a proposal? Everyone!

If you’re reading this post, you should write a proposal. PyCon is about uniting and building the Python community, and we won’t advance as an open community if we’re not open with each other about what we’ve learned throughout our time in it. It isn’t about being the smartest one in the room, so we don’t just pick all of the expert talks. It’s about helping everyone move together. “A rising tide lifts all boats,” if you will.

We need beginner, intermediate, and advanced proposals on all sorts of topics. We also need b…

PyCon 2018 Launches New Site, Sponsorship Search

After two great years in Portland, PyCon is shipping off to Cleveland for the 2018 and 2019 renditions of the Python community's largest gathering. PyCon 2018 will take place May 9 through 17 with two days of tutorials, three days of talks, and four days of development sprints.

For more information, check out our newly refreshed website at https://us.pycon.org/2018/ and follow us here on the blog and at @pycon on Twitter.

New Website

The new site features a design centered on the historic landmark Terminal Tower, a 52 story skyscraper that overlooks downtown Cleveland. When it opened in 1930, the tower was the fourth tallest building in the world and the tallest building outside of New York City. Though its height no longer tops the charts, the tower and surrounding Tower City area remain highly important to the city. What once was a beacon to guide ship captains to Cleveland's port and airplane pilots to its airport, the tower now includes 508 LEDs that light up for the holida…

How to get ready for the PyCon development sprints

[A guest post by Kushal Das, one of the 2016 Sprint Coordinators]So — you have already decided to join in the PyCon development sprints! The sprints run for four days, from Thursday to Sunday after the conference. You do not have to be registered for the conference to attend the sprints! Some teams plan to write code over all four days, while some projects plan a shorter sprint if the organizers cannot stay for all four days.Can you start getting prepared for the sprint ahead of time? Yes!There are several things you can do ahead of time, that can save effort once you arrive at the sprints — and some preparations can even be made at home, before you arrive at PyCon:Have your operating system updated and patched — whether Mac, Windows, or Linux. This eliminates one possible source of problems with getting software up and running.Go ahead and install the version control system that will be used by the projects you are interested in. If you install both git and Mercurial on your computer…
