Since I wasn’t able to get to this year’s MySQL UC (employer change caused problems with US visa obtaining and I didn’t get visa in time) I’m really interested in all presentations people are posting after their sessions. I decided to collect them all in one place and would like to share with others – maybe someone will find it interesting to read what people have to say about many interesting aspects of MySQL usage.
So, I’ve created a folder in my Scribd.com account which you could use (and track using RSS readers) to find out what interesting presentations were published. You can use either my account or mysqluc08 folder there. One more possible option to track mysqluc presentations/documents is using our tagging (I tag all my docs with mysqluc08 tag).
Thanks to MySQL community members we’ve got really great collection of media files from the recent mysqluc. Thanks to Seeri for all that work he’s done to collect everything in one place so we could watch/listen/read information from this great event.
So, if you did not attended mysqluc07, then you definitely should visit Technocation page, dedicated to this conference.
P.S. I’m going to post links to these videos and descriptions for the sessions on the Best Tech Videos soon, so If you are not sure to watch some video or not, just wait while I’m merging these links with information from mysqluc site.
Some days ago I came across interesting resource from Google. They are providing free access to video recordings from the some of their Educational seminars.
As far as I understand, these seminars has been provided by Google for their staff and now all of us can get them via Google Video service.
By the way, when I have decided to view some of that interesting seminars, it was not wery confortable for me to view them in browser window… and I have googled 😉 for some method to save video from google to local disk. As the result of my seraching, I got great service, that allows saving any clip from Google Video, Youtube or iFilm services to local disk!
And now, you have link to very interesting collection of video clips and you know the metod how to save it to local disc… the last I need to do is to say: “Happy viewing!” 🙂
Today I decided to write about some of my favourite podcasts which I’m using for improving my English level (listening comprehension). All of these resources are specialized ESL (English as a Second Language) podcasts hosted by English professionals and native speakers.

In one of my previous posts I’ve described interesting podcasts directory on Berkeley University site.
After that link was posted on the Digg.com, some new links to educational podcasts from MIT and Harvard Universities has beed posted there in comments:
Of course, using this resources are not quite as good as attending the class in person, but these schools are known for there excellent professors so they may be of some use to other students out there.
