pyvideo status: February 3rd, 2013

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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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 conference and user-group videos on the Internet. Saw a session you liked and want to share it? It's likely you can find it, watch it, and share it with


  • Videos for PyCon AU 2012 are posted.

    That's probably the last conference I'm going to do on my own. More about that later.

  • I've made some big changes to richard. For one, formatted fields use Markdown instead of HTML now (yay!). I've improved the API. I've made a lot of layout tweaks and user interface improvements.

  • I pushed out steve v0.1 and then promptly made a bunch of fixes, tweaks and changes. So I need to do a new release soon. steve is the utility people can use to generate conference data for See the commandline chapter for details.

I've been working on getting steve and richard to the point where I'm neither doing all the work nor am I the bottleneck for work being done.

I still need to write up a blog post on how to use steve to generate JSON files for That will make it possible for anyone to add conference video.

I'm working on changing richard to allow for other people to edit video metadata. It'll continue to be curated, but this will make it possible for other people to help because there are like 1600 videos and the repository continues to grow and I'm just one man. I have some of this worked out on paper, but it needs to be implemented.

That's the current push. I'm hoping to have a lot of this done for PyCon 2013.
