), which I assume many other pythonistas are aware of. They seem to be doing the video recording for many of the Python conferences, including PyCon and others. You can find the videos on YouTube and they seem to do an excellent job of balancing focus
between the presenter and the presentation screen itself. Code and graphics are always very clear.

more videos every year and I know I have benefited from them. The GR Conference seems to be a great opportunity to grab some new content.

Yes, I am hoping that all of the talks are recorded on video. I will
be working with the conference center this week to see what we can
actually accomplish. My hope is to just use their A/V team to handle
the setup and recording. We'll take the videos and publish them
somehow/somewhere. I hope to know more about this soon (what we can
expect for video files, formats, etc.).
Thanks for the pointer, though! I'll keep it in mind.
