      Comments about oreilly Strata Conference Santa Clara 2013: Complete Video Compilation:

      — Great depth (depending upon speaker, of course!)
      — Good coverage (breadth)
      — At certain times the mic tends to be unclear or other technical troubles, especially when returning from breaks (someone should always monitor this).
      — Room to improve switching between slide/presenter shown in video (remember we're not physically in the room)
      — Speakers should always be informed to be mindful at Q&A; they *must* always repeat the question!

        Comments about oreilly Strata Conference Santa Clara 2013: Complete Video Compilation:

        I was not able to attend the conference but I really wanted to be there. This compilation almost makes you feel that you attend the sessions. There are no audio problems in the videos that makes it difficult to understand the talks. Also, the big names are there; it was really nice to listen people whom I read their books.

        Since the videos are in high quality, they're really large as expected. There might be smaller versions to display in smartphones. Of course I can download and convert them but there are lots of videos; this would make the life a lot easier.

          The videos' content are great. I haven't seen all of them (there's a lot of them), but so far the Hadoop presentations were pretty good (I wish the presenter would give more hands on examples/code). I keep going back and forth to evaluate some of the Hadoop tools and for my meetup presentation. There are a lot of videos, so you will stumbled with some pretty basic ones, and some great golden nuggets. I couldn't make it to the conference, but I'm glad I bought the videos.

            I am writing this review before I have seen everything. I already know that I want to give it five stars.

            I give it five stars, because the sessions address the hottest topics, in the clearest format, with the minimum etceteralia. I am very impressed with the quality of the hosts; with the agendas of the sessions; with the depth of the explanations; and with the clarity of the examples.

            It is true, as at least one other commenter reported, that there is no index into the video sessions. However, for my purposes, the segments are each short enough, that I can find what I am looking for very quickly, if I at least know which session it is in.

                A very good compilation and would certainly increase in value if the number of tutorial sessions were increased.

                  The content is interesting but it is hard to use.

                  The O'Reilly video deployment is not mobile friendly and there is no way to track videos you have watched, like, or even to save your place. The videos are big and cannot transfer to dropbox so you must repeatedly log in to the O'Reilly site to get the latest link to the video you want, then transfer it to your mobile device. It is difficult to stream to your mobile device because of the file size and the tiny buttons of the O'Reilly web page.

                  If you are ready to sit a long time in front of your desktop computer this might work. The content is interesting, it is just hard to retrieve.

                  A Quick Review after 3 Video Clips

                    Background: I am a firmware engineer who mostly work using C/C++. Play around with some high-language like Python, Java, etc. now and then.

                    I am interested in how today massive amount of data acquired, managed, and utilized, so I thought this 100 hours of videos from Strata Conference for U$200 is a pretty good deal.
                    I managed to quickly view 3 videos clips, and I think I made the right decision spending the U$200. I think I will get some good information/knowledge from the clips.
                    I might update this review again later once I can give more useful information on the technical content, but for now there are a couple things I wish:
                    1. Smaller file size option. The movie format/resolution is 720. The presenters are good looking people, but I think I will be happy to watch in a much lower resolution if that means faster download :).
                    2. Edited videos. In the 3 clips I watched, one of them show the presenter but not the slide she was talking about (I think there were some slides because it seems she was clicking something and wait for it to appear on the screen). Another clip just stays on one slide for a minute or two while the presenter helping an audience to do something and some conversation in the background.
