Episode 12: Ken Coar Lightning Talk

September 25, 2006

Resuming the posting of Lightning Talks from ApacheCon Europe, here’s one that a number of you have requested. It loses quite a bit to just have the audio and not see it, but it’s till quite fascinating. There’s just one in this episode, since it ran just a little long, and I didn’t want to edit anything out. You can see more of it in Noirin’s ApacheCon photos.

Here it is, roughly 8 minutes.

Episode 8: Lightning Talks

August 14, 2006

The Lightning Lottery Talks are a fixture at ApacheCon, with talks ranging from “What’s on Ken’s Belt?” to “Shared Ant”. There’s always a good mix of entertaining talks and technical talks, and the speaker pool includes seasoned public speakers and first-time speakers enjoying their opportunity for a moment at the mic.

Over the next few months, we’ll be running almost all of the lightning talks from ApacheCon Europe, and in this first one of the Lightning Episodes, you’ll hear Leo Simons, teaching us how to give a lightning talk, and Johan Stuyts talking about Shared Ant, a build environment for collaborate development.

The music in the intro and at the end is Colm McCarthaigh again, playing “Lakes of Pontchartrain.”

The recording is HERE, and is roughly 12 minutes long.
