It would be great if the slides were downloadable as .pdf rather than having to go through registration on slideshare (which itself seems to be half-broken...).

I've just read this quote: ----- Publishing on Dailymotion: Dailymotion does not automatically publish your video after upload. It will show up as a thumbnail. Clicking on the thumbnail takes you to a viewer that says the video has not been published; instead, you need to click on the link inside the thumbnail itself that says "Click here to publish." This takes you to a page where you are required to add a title, tags, and up to two channels you want the video to belong to.

This is very frustrating. I've done everything needed, and I can see the video file when I'm logged in. If I log out, I see the same "encoding in progress" thing. Could someone else log in and see if that's enough to make the video viewable? I chose dailymotion.com because it accepts videos of the appropriate size and duration. Are there better sites I should use? Thanks, Andrei

Yea. Andrei: Roughly how big are the original video files you're uploading? If you didn't want to setup/seed the torrents yourself, and I had access to them and they weren't too huge (I can manage a combined total of up to a few gigabytes), then I'd be happy setup/seed torrents of the original video files so people don't have to wait for them to get uploaded to and transcoded by dailymotion/youtube/whatever, just so I can grab them from there and torrent what might end up being a goofy flv file that not everyone will be able to play anyway.

Current FF (and probably other browsers) has a builtin PDF reader, which is _much_ more convenient than any web-based tool I've seen. (And a real PDF viewer is better yet). I think there would be much less problems if the files were made available directly first - it takes little effort and would allow other people to, say, upload it to YouTube and million other sites.

I've seen some of those other sites, and they seemed to bury the slides in the middle of a cacophony of ads and popups.

Fair enough.
 BTW what's a good site for sharing slides?
 
Any plain old HTTP server. dlang.org, dconf.org, or even github since you can easily direct link to the actual files (unless they've changed that, but I don't think so). PDFs are small. I can mirror them on my server too if you wanted to email them to me (user: nick1 domain: semitwist.com), or I can wait until they're all on slideshare and grab them myself - I signed up for a dummy account (Yay mailinator!! :) ). Slideshare doesn't seem to be too bad as an option for some people (it beats the hell out of google docs), I just wouldn't stick *exclusively* to online-viewer services, especially ones that require either registration or high-end browser technologies just for a trivial <a href="...">...</a> download link.

This is very frustrating. I've done everything needed, and I can see the video file when I'm logged in. If I log out, I see the same "encoding in progress" thing. Could someone else log in and see if that's enough to make the video viewable? I chose dailymotion.com because it accepts videos of the appropriate size and duration. Are there better sites I should use? Thanks, Andrei
I can't see the video when I'm logged in. It say that the video is being published.

Something is wrong with that site. It says "Publishing in progress, your video will be available soon". Andrei's message was 6 hours ago, I don't know what it has to do to publish, but seems stuck. On my iPhone, once, somehow it started playing (not through the dailymotion app, but the web site itself), but only played the first 20 seconds, then hung. -Steve

I'm hearing some phase weirdness from the audio. It's still perfectly intelligible but a little off-putting. This sort of thing is usually caused by a stereo signal being mixed to mono. Are the original files stereo (should say somewhere in the properties)?

The uploaded version appears to be mono (or at least left and right identical). This conversion is probably the cause of the strange hollow effect, particularly noticeable in the applause. It's no big deal but it might be nice to get sorted so as to present the most professional product possible.

Ok, I'm now seeing one seed (myself), and 7 peers (2 of them connected), and it is uploading to those two connected peers. So all should be good now. Kinda slow ATM as I'm seeding this from a home-class cable internet connection, but of course, being torrent, the download speeds should improve for eveyone as more data gets transferred out.

No, not unless Andrei puts it somewhere. I'm still willing to seed torrents of those if I can get access to them. He said the original version of the keynote was ~600MB, looks like there were ~20 talks, so figure ~12GB - I should be able to swing that at least for a month or so assuming people actually want the full original quality versions (and then naturally archive them to, it'd only be ~3-4 DVDRs). Or I could transcode to something in between the original quality and YouTube quality if people prefer.

Nice. Personally I use Tab Mix Plus (setup for a max of 3 rows of tabs, after which the whole tab bar area scrolls vertically; along with some various other goodies), but I'll definitely try to remember that if I'm ever forced to use one of those awful 16:9 monitors (great for watching widescreen videos/games - ie, the sorts of stuff I use my TV for - and, uhh, viewing traditional-style Japanese text...and exactly nothing else.) These are the FF plug-ins I can't live without: - Like I said, Tab Mix Plus <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-mix-plus/> - DownloadHelper, again as mentioned before <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-downloadhelper/> - NoScript (Easy per-(sub)domain JS settings plus placeholders for Flash - Click when I actually want to view them) <http://noscript.net/> - AdBlock Plus (I wouldn't normally mind banner ads, but my mind literally can't read a page if parts of it are animating. Plus they're giant security risks. Drive-by exploits? No thanks.) <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/> - AdBlock Plus's Element Hiding Helper (Great for killing annoying share-on-everything boxes and asinine "turn on JS" nags.) <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/elemhidehelper/> - BetterPrivavy (Cookies are fine. SuperCookies must die.) <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/> - Winestripe (The real original, not the mediocre FF3.5+ remakes.) - Disable Backspace Navigation (The only times I've ever navigated with backspace have been by accident while typing into a textbox) <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disablebackspacenavigation/> - FavLoc <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/favloc/> - HttpFox <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/httpfox/> - Linkification <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/linkification/> - Re-Pagination <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/repagination/> About 90% of the Web would be literally unusable for me if it weren't for at least NoScript and AdBlock Plus. If I weren't using FF2 I'd also cram in more crap to kill everything about the AwfulBar's UI and de-unify the forward/back buttons (if such a plugin existed) so their drop-downs actually make sense again (I liked the idea of unified forward/back buttons until I actually tried them).

Awesome. Do you still need the original? I have it as a 600MB mp4 file, not sure of the other details. Andrei
Original is always better.

The originals would be better since 1. they haven't been transcoded (or at least haven't been transcoded an extra time) and 2. their filesizes are apparently only a little bit larger than YouTube's high-quality. Transcoding a video just to end up with a file size that's comparable to the original (as is the case with YouTube's high-quality version) is kind of pointless since it inherently reduces quality for little-to-no benefit. YouTube's lower quality version is nice just because it's a significantly reduced filesize (even if it is in the goofy flv format), but for a high quality version their transcoding is kind of a waste.

 I've made a torrent (now seeding) with the video and slides.
 Hopefully it works ok, this is the first torrent I've actually created

Awesome. I'll be seeding for a while as well. Thanks! (methinks it wouldn't be a bad idea to put the torrent on dconf.org and add a note asking for downloaders to seed for a while)

This is awesome, the video is a great quality.

By cons I agree with the last point raised by the audience on the 
relative weakness of the documentation. I follow the D 
intermittently and I think the online documentation has improved, 
although it is not enough. With a friend we works on a project 
and sometimes it's hard to find what we are looking for.
I find tools are generally very good, MonoD and VisualD works 
very well and support of debuggers.

We hope to make a good contribution by the development of a GUI 
library.
__traits are amazing, it allows us to generate a lot of code 
automatically. We still have to work one the kernel of our 
library before making a first public prototype.

Also, I've just started seeding a torrent (available from the

(since Andrei has make it available for direct download from
archive.org).

I have to disagree with some of the points in the keynote though. 
The part with "algorithm in D" example, I don't know but map(a => 
a.idup) isn't exactly obvious. About the scope vs no-scope - it'd 
be interesting to see how try-finally version looks like in 
comparison.

About the IDE discussion near the end of keynote - I know a lot 
of you people are happy just using Vim/Emacs + command line 
compiling, but having a proper IDE is a big part in language 
adoption nowadays. I can't speak for VisualD and MonoD, but I've 
heard they are nice, I am using DDT which is also good, although 
debugging on windows with DMD isn't that fun. A good example 
would be Visual Basic 6.0 - everyone seems to hate it, yet a lot 
of people (mostly non-programmers) use it to make apps because in 
few clicks you can make a GUI application. Same would apply to 
Java too - language isn't the best there is, and coding Java 
without Netbeans/Eclipse/IntelliJ would be a new dimension of 
pain but with those IDEs writing stuff is 'fun'.

All in all, great to see D community getting together to discuss 
and share stuff =)

Agreed. This is a bit of a wart IMO.

Have you seen Andre's slides comparing these.. does anyone have a link?

I think Walters point about not making a language require an IDE to add boilerplate is a good one, the boilerplate itself, and the fact the language requires it is the real issue, not whether an IDE is used to generate it. As for IDE's in general, I use MSVC pretty much predominantly and when doing GUI development in C# it's RAD :p Doing the same thing with a text editor would be painful. The boilerplate in this case is the skeleton/structure for the GUI library, not the language, so it's a separate boilerplate issue, and not one that good language design can obviate. That, plus all the other nice features of an IDE - many of which can be synthesized by an editor with scripting support, are the reasons to use one. Integrated debugging, etc.
 All in all, great to see D community getting together to discuss and  
 share stuff =)

You're right, that one isn't.
