Subject [ApacheCon] Volunteers needed, Audio processing
Date Thu, 05 May 2016 12:29:04 GMT
As some of you know, we do not have a sponsor to handle audio/video
recording at ApacheCon this year. Thus, we'll be doing it ourselves -
just audio, not video.

So, I need volunteers for the following things:

If you are willing to video presentations and put them on YouTube,
please step up and do this. Keynotes, in particular, would be appreciated.

More importantly, I'll be dealing with 8 tracks x 9 hours x 5 days of
audio that will need to be edited. This isn't complicated, it just requires:

* Computer with Audacity ( ) installed, and
your own headphones
* Lots of patience

The process is:

* Dump huge files off of SD cards at the end of each day
* Split large recording into sessions
* Strip off leading, trailing noise
* Encode to mp3
* Upload to
* Write brief boilerplate blog post (Name, Session title, Abstract)

If you are willing to do this for even an hour, please let me know. I
will be doing this each evening, for the duration of the event, and
probably quite a bit during the days. If you just drop by the hackathon
area, and help me out for even a brief time, I'll be very grateful.



(Looking towards next event, if you or your company want to sponsor
audio/video for the upcoming ApacheCon EU, your company will get a lot
of thanks and retweets out of this.)
