Content Management Systems Videos

This month’s event was a great with some speakers joining us from across the country. A big thank you to all of them and to Richard for organising.

As the video service we have been using is closing down we have moved our video archive to the Internet Archive and will be updating the web site links so they are not lost forever. We are looking at other additional services as well but for now you can access this month’s videos at https://archive.org/details/SuperMondaysCMS. If you would like to help with recording, editing, and/or uploading future Super Mondays videos then please get in tough with me. Your help would be very much appreciated.

Adam’s WordPress WTF slides are available on Speaker Deck.

Dev Ops Videos

It was an exciting event this month, made more so by the building falling apart and our entrance being blocked. Thank you to the University porters for sorting late access through another part of the building open, and thank you to those who helped direct people round to the temporary entrance. We should be back to normal next month.

By popular demand (well two people asked for them) here are the videos of this month’s event.

Andrew Taylor – Past, Present, Future. DevOps from inside a billion pound company

Oli Wood – Building Boxes Better : (Sensible Scripting So Sysadmins Smile)

Oli’s slides at online at https://speakerdeck.com/coldclimate/scripting-creating-aws-based-servers.

Sam Lambert – hubot mysql me

Please join us on February 24th for our event on Content Management Systems

HTML prototyping, Web standards and Encryption videos

This month we improvised with the videos recording them on a mobile phone. Hopefully the lack of recording quality will not take anything away from the content.

Martin Underhill – The Importance of Web Standards

Vicky Teinaki – Got HTML prototypes

You can view Vicky’s slides on SlideShare and read her summery blog post.

Ross Cooney – A Brief History

Apologise that Ross’s question were cut short. The battery in the phone ran out. Do you know how much effort it takes to recover video from an iPhone when the battery has run out. We did not until this but it turns out to be a lot.

So that is SuperMondays done and dusted for 2013, and we hope to see you all again in January 2014.
