pyvideo status: September 6th, 2012

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

What is is an index of Python-related videos on the Internet. For the most part, it's a collection of videos from Python-related conferences. Saw a session you liked and want to share it? It's likely you can find it, watch it, and share it with


I posted the videos for EuroPython 2012 last night. Many thanks to Omar who pulled together metadata for the conference.

If you look at the videos on the site, the data is kind of a mess. I spent a bunch of time reconciling issues with the data from the YouTube feed with data from the EuroPython 2012 site and fixed a lot of issues, but there's still a lot left to do.

I spent about 10 hours working on the data for EuroPython 2012.

My current plan is to leave it like this for now and forge ahead to catch up with other conferences from 2012. Then I'll go back and continue working on a system for crowd-sourcing metadata fixes. That will make it easier for anyone to fix data they see is wrong and also remove me as a bottleneck to a better index of Python video.

I'm working on SciPy 2012, PyCon AU 2012, and PyCon DE 2011. You can see the queue of conferences here.
