Hello fellow Emacsians!

The EmacsConf 2020 videos are now ready.  Thanks to everyone who helped
make it happen!

You can check out https://emacsconf.org/2020/talks/ to find the videos,
Q&A, links, and notes for each talk.  The collaborative pad is archived
at https://emacsconf.org/2020/pad/.  We've also asked speakers to send
us any additional material or resources they would like to add to their
talk's page.

The videos are currently available in 720p (1280px x 720px, progressive)
WebM format.  We are working on transcoding and uploading low-resolution
(480p or 852px x 480px, progressive) WebM as well.

If you have questions or ideas related to the talks, please feel free to
reach out to the speaker(s).  If you think of ways to make EmacsConf
even better, we'd love to hear from you too.  You can also check out
https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/Usergroups for meetups and workshops
happening throughout the year (and if you organize a meetup or would
like to, please contact us - we'd love to help bring people together!).
If you have any EmacsConf-related blog posts or discussions, please add
them to https://emacsconf.org/2020/ or email us so that we could add the
links.  Let's keep the conversation going!

Behind the scenes

This year, we were again able to make EmacsConf happen entirely with
Free Software.  For the live talks and/or Q&A sessions with speakers,
we used the BigBlueButton instance graciously shared with us by the
Free Software Foundation (FSF).  The whole conference was captured
and streamed to the EmacsConf stream server running Icecast, using a
GStreamer pipeline based on a script written by Ruben Rodriguez for
streaming FSF events such as the LibrePlanet conference and FSF35.
For the collaborative pad for gathering questions and show notes, we
used an Etherpad on the Wikimedia Foundation instance hosted at
https://etherpad.wikimedia.org.  For the EmacsConf website, we used
ikiwiki.  During the conference, we used Emacs Lisp to plan the
schedule, update the topics across our IRC channels, and send automated
messages about upcoming talks to speakers and organizers, all inside

As we write more about our streaming setup, infrastructure, processes,
and code, we will update https://emacsconf.org/2020/ and post links to
In the meantime, please don't hesitate to email me (bandali@gnu.org)
if you would like to ask about how we organized the conference.

Thanks again to everyone for an awesome EmacsConf!
