      Comments about oreilly JavaScript and HTML5 at OSCON 2012:

      Compared to OSCON 2011, these set of videos are just OK. There is no introductory type videos but most of the videos are just general. The number of videos is lesser too compared to last year. The quality of the videos is great. The presenters are well-respected too.

      Comments about oreilly JavaScript and HTML5 at OSCON 2012:

      I am extremely pleased with this set of videos. I also bought the 'Java and JVM' track as well.

      The quality of the recordings is top notch, high definition. I can read every word on the slides. The material is cutting edge. I have been stuck in a rut consulting for a Bank where we have only ventured out into jQuery but otherwise stick with the same basic JavaScript and HTML that has worked for us for years. As a result, my knowledge of the latest developments in HTML5 and JavaScript has been lacking. I have learned quite a lot from these videos and I love the fact that I can rewind and play again.

      My only gripe is that when deciding whether to stay on the slide projected on the screen or showing the presenter standing at the podium, too often the presenter is shown. A slide will be flashed briefly, then we are back looking at the presenter. Often, the presenter is explicitly pointing at the screen and discussing the points on there, and yet whoever edited the video still does not switch back to the slide. Fortunately, I own the videos, so I rewind back to the slide, study it, then resume listening to the presenter.

      Comments about oreilly JavaScript and HTML5 at OSCON 2012:

      As a rather experimented web developper I found these videos either too specific or too general. Not enough practice and useful explications often rare.
      Nonetheless it might be useful for curious people not expecting tutorial-like videos.
