Edit: There looks to be enough interest to make this effort worthwile. Check out the new article for the DevDays audio. I will be updating that post as new presentations are available.

DevDays Austin audio

I took a bunch of audio yesterday and I'll put it on my blog if anyone wants it. I tried to take some video but it didn't really turn out that well. Hopefully I can get the slides from some of the speakers.

Interested?

Here's the speaker list: http://stackoverflow.carsonified.com/events/austin/

EDIT: I thought this went without saying, but I'll say it anyway. I'll stream/let you download the audio files for free. No gimmicks, no advertisements, no catch... I just want to share the great content (especially to those of you who couldn't make it).

Update: I emailed every speaker and asked explicit permission to post their talk. Jason Cohen already gave his approval and I'm waiting on everyone else.

Is this...legal? –  Thomas Owens Oct 15 '09 at 19:38
    
@Thomas good question, I don't know why it wouldn't be... I'm going to be asking everyone for a copy of their slides anyway, so I guess they could always ask me to take it down (which I would, without hesitation). That's kind of the point of the presentations though, to share knowledge. But - admittedly - I am working off of an assumption. –  Robert Greiner Oct 15 '09 at 19:44

Well Joel+Co have an interest in people paying to go to the next dev days - they are losing out if people decide to listen online instead of paying to go (Yes at $99 everyone is going to go if there is an event locally). Also the speakers are paid to appear and give these talks - they could lose out if you listen to them online rather than pay to go to a conference they are presenting at. –  Martin Beckett Oct 15 '09 at 22:07
    
I'm not saying that it is prohibited in this case but it definitely can be. Many speakers do not allow their talks to be recorded and re-broadcast in their entirety. I would go as far as to say that, for more-popular speakers, re-broadcast is prohibited more often than not. –  Robert Cartaino Oct 15 '09 at 23:33
    
@mgb that is a good point, although people like @alex were never going to go anyway, and now they can benefit from the knowledge shared at DevDays. –  Robert Greiner Oct 15 '09 at 23:39
    
@Robert good point, I'm going to email each speaker individually and let them know what I'm planning. This way, I can get slides etc... from everyone. Thanks for the info. –  Robert Greiner Oct 15 '09 at 23:39

It might be quicker to e-mail Joel Spolsky. He'll know what sort of agreement they have about re-broadcast. –  Robert Cartaino Oct 15 '09 at 23:58

If you get permission it's probably fine to post it, but you may want to wait til all the DevDays are done as a courtesy to Joel and team! –  kanamekun Oct 20 '09 at 20:48

I's say a lot of people would be interested in this. I for one can't come to any of the DevDays (the closest on is 1700 km away), but I'd like to hear what's been talked about.

this is exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted to ask around first as a sanity check. If it helps one person then I'll do it. –  Robert Greiner Oct 15 '09 at 19:41
    
Yeah, even I would love it ... I'm two continents away from the nearest devdays... :( –  aviraldg Oct 16 '09 at 9:50

Thank you! I know what I'll be doing today :) –  alex Oct 21 '09 at 5:01

Sure, I for one would be interested! (I just hope it's ok with the speakers and organisers to publish them.)

Now if someone would just post the keynote video of Joel abusing his employees like a high school track coach.
