Videos from Sydney JavaScript UG, 17 July 2013

Last month I started a new habit, recording SydJS usergroup videos. Although there are not so many views of these on YouTube, I got a call from a friend who can’t make it to the gathering and thinks the video are useful, so, I’m continuing with them…

Here are the videos for this month’s gathering. Pro-tip: Make sure to switch video quality to 720p for best experience. The video quality button is one of the left buttons next to full-screen button.

Background

My readers know I have been experimenting with video publishing for a while, focusing on simplicity in getting releases out. I started with a simple introduction to the new Angular.JS library, a simple productivity trick for all users, and then a simple and old cross browser CSS trick. In the 3 videos, you saw me explaining stuff. It’s time for something different.

The idea is to record the usergroup sessions I go to. I started with ALT.NET Sydney last month, organized with speakers to use their own recording, then got a bit unfortunate due to technical issue on the machines used.

This month I didn’t have a connection with the speakers to coordinate the recording, so I just took my phone to Sydney JavaScript usergroup (SydJS), sat in the first row, and started recording a separate video for each session.

Due to the nature of the way I used, and being a first timer, you’ll find some issues with the videos like the scene moving up and down a bit, and zooming-in and out or fading a bit. However, the videos are still an OK resource for anyone who missed the event (or doesn’t live in Sydney at all). So, hopefully you like them, and I get to improve the technique next time.
