Video description

Hone your programming skills with help from the experts

If Hacker News had a conference, it would be OSCON: the 2012 edition of this conference was packed with sessions in the Programming Skills track. With this compilation video, you’ll get a front-row seat for more than a dozen of these tutorials, led by experts in the community such as Bob Nystrom (Google), Dan Menard (Netflix), Andrei Alexandrescu (Facebook), and many others.

Explore open source tools and technologies such as Erlang, Sphinx, Cowboy, Dart, Light Table, and more. You can download the videos or view them through our HD player, and discover new ways to hone your open source programming skills. Here are just a few of the sessions you’ll receive in this video package:

  • Behind The Mirror: The birth of Light Table—Chris Granger (Kodowa)
