Oh Twitch uses Elixir that’s good to know
That Elixir Native UI talk was very interesting.
Day 2 videos starting to go up - added what’s available to the first post… including José’s keynote
They are super fast
Some highlights from José’s keynote:
Elixir’s original design goals were:
But now the language has matured and both Extensibility and Compatability are mainly solved problems, and Elixir development is focusing more on:
That’s it - I think they’re all up now (added to first post)
I love how quickly they had been going up - definitely gives the conference a worldwide ‘live’ feel - well done to @drfreeze and everyone involved with organising it
Is this in one of the talks? Which talk is this?
Its this one
Streaming Video with Elixir - John Wahba
Strange that the comments on youtube are not allowed, at least for me. Some of the videos (the ecto one) have a lot of typos on the slides that could have been fixed by a comment.
Not to mention that it hinders discussion. With some approaches to the problems in some other videos I might even say I disagree (the twitch one).
Unfortunately YouTube (as a platform) seems to be attracting more and more trolls these days and so I’m guessing the conference team did not want to subject the speakers to that kind of thing or have to waste their time dealing with such matters.
They might feel that if discussions are on Elixir community channels like this, the comments/feedback are more likely to be genuine
I don’t think the videos are there to spawn any discussions, or god forbid, flame wars. But rather only for archiving purposes. If there are typos, it’s best to contact author directly. And if you want to start interesting discussion, you can always do it here
And btw. I loved the GUI talk from Boyd Multeter
Was that the message you got from my comment? That wasn’t my intention.
If there are typos, it’s best to contact author directly.
I think it’s very important for newcomers that in introductory talks like the ecto one there are working examples. It is much easier for everyone to type something from a slide, see an error, and then see why the error is there from a comment below the video than go and look at the updated version of the slides somewhere else. I will write to the author of this talk, though. Good suggestion, thank you.
As for starting an interesting discussion about the twitch video, I don’t think there is any discussion to be had. I see very little benefit in using ffmpeg like they did in the video with elixir.
Could you contact the speaker to let them know? If they agree it’s worth mentioning they could get it added to the description
I did not try to imply that You want to start a flame war. It was rather general comment about youtube comments, because they are one of worst possible places to start discussion about any topic, the other one being 4chan.org/b/
I didn’t watch twitch one, but again it was rather general comment, that this forums are the possibly the best place to start discussion and get constructive responses
And when it comes to the typos, if there are many, speaker in collaboration with uploader can probably superimpose annotation in youtube video where there are typos, but they have to know about them. And the best way is to inform either speaker or uploader of given video.
5 posts were merged into an existing topic: 4) ElixirConf 2017 - Thinking In Ecto - Darin Wilson
I haven’t watched all of the talks all the way through yet but have looked at them all and from what I saw, thought you all did a fantastic job
It was also great to see such a diverse range of speakers (including in the lightning talks!)
Might be nice for the forum to post a talk per day to spark group viewing and discussion @AstonJ
Go for it Barry
If it takes off we can do it every year
If you’ve seen the talk you are posting up as well, do you reckon it might be cool to include some highlights as @mischov did above? I would also keep 'ElixirConf 2017 Talk - ’ in the title for each talk as well - so that those getting notified by tweets or email know what to expect
Edit: I’ve also made the first post in this thread a wiki - so please feel free to add the link to the discussion thread next to the name of the talk.
