Last few minutes / slides cut short?
Re: Last few minutes / slides cut short?
Unfortunately, the tape ran out at the end of the presentation - you'll notice that the presentation video length is 63 min. The slot for QCon presentations was 60 min and the tapes have about 63 min worth of room, so the first tape ran out while Rod was wrapping up the presentation (since there's always at least a minute of blank time at the beginning of the tape) - a second one was swapped in as fast as possible to capture the end, but there was between 30 seconds and a minute of downtime as a result.
