    Comments about oreilly Fluent Conference 2014: Video Compilation:

    Important!- i havent reviewed every video included in this product!its not practical but anyone can get an ideal idea of what im telling.
    I got access to all the videos of the conference by beign a member of O'Reilly Reader Review Program..im a student whos studying web developmnet
    I'll summarize my review by breaking it down to several sections,so its easy to navigate

    PART 1
    Satisfaction = 90%
    I really like the tutorials.They are Great!as a learner i started watching with the tutorials section..
    1.1 AngularJs Fundamentals by Mark Bates
    Total Runtime-171min

    Mark Bates is the guy behind Metacasts.tv and he has done an amazing job at the fluentconf..his tutorials are very engaging and he had the ability to overcome the boredness by making some fun..if you are a complete newbie to Angulajs then i recommend to use the pause button more often and try to write your own code with him than just watching the video.For someone whos already familiar with Angular this tutorial will help to refresh your knowledge.

    1.2 Attacking Web Applications by Sasha Goldshtein
    Total Runtime-82min

    This tutorial is not for absolute beginner.Should be a developer who can understand backend and frontend technolgies as well as have some basic understanding of security.But its very engaging i do recommend it to anyone who loves to learn the basics of bad side of the web technologies.

    PART 2

      Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this work under the O'Reilly Blogger Review Program.

      So I'm not a web developer, just an interested amateur. I know a little HTML, a smattering of JavaScript, and a few tidbits of jQuery, plus some backend stuff (Node/Express) with which I have limited facility. I had two goals in reviewing this collection, which includes every keynote, tutorial and session talk from the Fluent conference put on by O'Reilly:

      Get a sense of what's happening at the forefront of web development. I probably share this with the majority of actual attendees.
      Learn something new from the in-depth tutorials. Given that I'm starting at a lower baseline, this may have been a stretch.

      The result? I really enjoyed the talks. For the most part, speakers are engaging and clear. I watched all the keynotes, most of the tutorials, and a smattering of session talks aligned with my own interests. High points included:

      -- Mark Bates's AngularJS tutorial. I can't say I absorbed everything at one go, but this opinionated tutorial gave me a much better sense of how angular is organized and how to structure my learning.

      -- Sasha Goldstein's "Attacking Web Applicatons." Engaging, approachable for beginners, and freaking terrifying.

      -- Moh Haghighat, "Closing the Web Platform Gap with Native" (cf. Eich's keynote). Mostly for getting me excited about the future performance possibilities of the JavaScript VM.

      Less good points:

      -- I was really excited about John Williams's D3 tutorial, but couldn't make it through. I've done some reading on D3, and was hoping for a bigger-picture look at how the library and its syntax are put together — effectively, how to "think" D3 —but that wasn't the approach he seemed to be taking.

      -- Price point: I loved the content, but to be honest, I don't think I would have paid the several hundred dollars this collection cost (similar to the actual conference pricing). Might be more reasonable for professionals or those whose employers are paying.

      All told, though, a great resource for getting up to speed on trends in web development.
