Hello fellow Emacsians!

By  all  accounts,  EmacsConf 2019  was  a  big
success, and I'd like to  say thank you to each
and every one of you  for your help and efforts
in making it so!  With  just over 3 weeks after
the conference, I'm very happy to announce that
the EmacsConf 2019 videos are now available for
your viewing pleasure!


To view  the videos and  accompanying material,
head to the videos page of EmacsConf 2019 at:


I would  like to  say a huge  thank you  to the
Computer  Science  Club  of the  University  of
Waterloo  for agreeing  to  host the  EmacsConf
videos on their mirror server.  Thank you CSC!

The videos were also uploaded to toobnix.org, a
PeerTube instance run by the SDF folks and part
of the  fediverse network.  Feel free  to visit
the EmacsConf channel at


and browse the "EmacsConf 2019" playlist for an
ordered list of this year's videos.

Shownotes pad

Per suggestion of Karl Voit, the viewers used a
shared etherpad  for collecting show  notes and
other useful  tidbits of information on  Nov 2.
The pad  has been archived and  converted to an
Org file  by Karl  himself (thank  you, Karl!).
See  https://emacsconf.org/2019/pad   for  more


Of the  32 talks scheduled for  EmacsConf 2019,
31 of them are available for your viewing right
now!  With only these caveats:

1. Due to technical difficulties, we were sadly
   unable to host Sachin's live talk on the day
   of the conference.  Sachin  has told us that
   he would send us a recording, but that he is
   currently  very busy.   Of  course, we  will
   make Sachin's recording available as soon as
   it's ready and we receive it.

2. Another technical issue lead to frozen video
   starting  in the  middle  of Howard's  talk.
   Howard told us that he would work on putting
   together a recording of  his talk, and we'll
   post the recording as soon as we get it.

3. Please  note that  the links for  the videos
   and  especially  the  notes/transcripts  are
   very likely  to change  in the  near future,
   and as such, I'd like to ask that you please
   try to  link to the main  videos page itself
   https://emacsconf.org/2019/videos as much as
   possible for now while we sort this out.

   I have been looking  for a nice low-overhead
   and  bare-bones free  software solution  for
   hosting the  conference videos, and  I think
   I've  found  a great  candidate,  LibreTube:
   I'll look into  experimenting with LibreTube
   and  setting this  up  on our  server if  it
   suits  our  needs  well.  That  will  likely
   imply a  change of  some URLs, so  if that's
   necessary, I'll  try to  make the  change as
   smooth  as  possible,  e.g.  by  setting  up
   automatic redirects to the new addresses.

Postmortem (coming soon)

Now with the videos taken  care of, I will work
on preparing a postmortem followup article with
details of our free software infrastructure and
streaming setup, as promised.

Thanks again to all of you for all of your help
and  encouragements; I  look forward  to seeing
you around for the next EmacsConf!

P.S. we will hopefully  have even more exciting
news to share with y'all  soon; be sure to keep
an eye on this list. ;-)
