Mountain West RubyConf 2008 videos available

Well, at least some (I can’t really judge, but compared to the videos on
the same site available for MWCF2007, they aren’t all up yet):

http://mwrc2008.confreaks.com/

I’ve so far watched:

Giles B.'s Code Generation: The Safety Scissors Of Metaprogramming
talk which was nifty.

Jeremey McAnally’s Deep Ruby talk (which was interesting in an academic
sense to me, but is probably very informative for all you Ruby
implementation hackers out there).

The videos are in good quality (but by no means bandwidth friendly!).

There seems to be a bit of everything for everybody on the conference
tracks, so check it out (and the other talks they offer for download for
different conferences).

Thanks to the presenters for giving the talks, the Confreaks guys for
making the talks available for poor souls like me (If any one wants to
sponsor me to MW RubyConf2009, I take small, used notes, thank you :P),
and of course many thanks to the organizers of the conferences in the
first place. I appreciate all of this a lot.

Nope, they’re not all there yet, but Confreaks are getting them uploaded
at
a pretty good clip.

You should really watch Jim W.'s closing keynote too. And if
you’re
digging around in the internals of Ruby, Patrick Farley’s talk is going
to
be a huge help. I can’t wait to see it posted.

first place. I appreciate all of this a lot.

Thanks. We had a great time putting things together, but hearing that
people appreciate the work makes it even sweeter.

I’ve noticed. And the archives kept me busy while waiting for the MWRC08
videos. It’s a great resource, I have to say, and I learned a lot. I’m
sure to revisit some talks in the future.

Yeah, I’m doing that right now. I absolutely love the first part. The
replacement talk’s great, too, though. :stuck_out_tongue:

And while I’m not really into digging around in Ruby’s guts, learning
about how Ruby works is interesting on many levels.

You are welcome. I really, really like the videos, and it’s great to
have the slides integrated the way Confreaks do it. Just great.

Compared with Google’s Tech Talks, I prefer the Confreaks videos by a
wide margin.
