PowerShell Summit Videos

Aaron Hoover, one of our Summit attendees, was kind enough to record via webcam the sessions he attended - and he's posted about 13 hours of video on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

What I'd like to know from you, if you don't mind dropping a comment below, is what you think of these. If we offered this KIND of recording in the future, would it be helpful? This is something we can do easily and is affordable from a technical perspective; there's obviously a production quality compromise. We can do more... but it costs more, and someone's going to have to pay for it. So... where do you sit on this kind of recording?

  1. I'm loving the fact that i can catch up with these sorts of events after the fact. Getting over to the US is just out of the question as i'm sure it is for many of us.

    So my thinking from watching the video of Ed Wilson is that you didn't use a microphone or anything, just good old fashioned speaking loudly. Is that correct? If so could you use a wireless headset (eg Plantronics Savi 700) to capture voice and a decent webcam to capture the video. At work we have mounted webcams on top of a camera monopod with tripod base (eg Benro MC-91M8) for group video conferencing. Depending on distance you might need a powered USB extension for the webcam, but thats cheap enough. The main cost comes from the headset as you need an "office" (read "business" (read "we can charge you extra")) model.

    • Correct. This wasn't a planned recording - one of the attendees did this with his webcam. We do put a mic on the speakers, so we can't load another one on 'em, but next time we might be able to take a tap off the room mic (which is a wireless lav). Depends a bit on the facility - union labor makes running a wire expensive sometimes, unfortunately. But if we could improve the audio, this would make you happy?

      • I didn't realise there was already a mic there, we don't want to borgify the speakers too much... i think. I don't know anything of union labour outside of american tv, so i guess it makes doing things tricky.

        I think improving the audio for me is the number 1. I don't think it is too far off mind, i'm getting almost all of what people say. But for those with a stronger accent like Aleksandar Nikolic i did struggle to make some of it out. I assume it would be a similar situation on the flip side that don't have english as a first language.

        Video wise i could read most of the powershell that was on screen (i've flicked through some to make these comments, i've not sat to watch them all) as long as the camera was at a good distance. A good comparison is Automating for DevOps vs Powershell Events.
