  13. Ed says:

    The people at the information booth at PDC said the WPF and Silverlight pre-conference sessions were being recorded and would be available for download in video format – I gave them my email and checked in at EVERY break in the conference and they have YET to get back to me. I attended the WPF but would like to listen to the end of it again as it was fairly advanced and wanted to attend the Silverlight one but could not be two places at the same time.

  17. The Full List of PDC2008 Sessions

  18. Larry Smith says:

    Sorry, Mike, but while the list is good, and is appreciated, has anyone actually thought through how this will be used, in particular the names of the files?

    Take TL27 as an example. If I follow the links and download this (as TL27.wmv), and a week later find the time to watch some PDC videos, how in the world am I going to decide (from the session ID alone) that this is the next one I want to watch?

    So what I have to do is to copy the session title to the clipboard and paste it into the File Save dialog. It’s a nuisance. And wastes my time.

    But wait, there’s more. So what I wind up with is a dialog with <TL27 – “Oslo”: The Language.wmv> (I like to put the ” – ” in, since “TL27” isn’t really part of the session title). But of course, double quotes aren’t valid in filenames. So I have to edit this to <TL27 – ‘Oslo’: The Language.wmv>.

    Except that we’re still not done. Most of the bloody sessions have colons in their names. So yet another step to fix this to <TL27 – ‘Oslo’ — The Language.wmv>. Finally!

    If I have to do this once, it’s a minor nuisance. But I’ve had to do this literally over 100 times (with more to come).

    Would it be too much to ask that the filenames actually be in a ***useful*** format? With session names and no special characters?!?

    P.S. Ditto for .pptx and .zip (code) files.

  19. MP says:

    Thanks for posting all in one place!
