  • Live coding hard to see

    Always love a talk from Rich, but when it gets to the live coding portion, the video resolution of the coding is so low that I just gave up. I understand if you've got limitations in how it was captured or something, but if you could improve it, that would be most appreciated!

    I concur! I'd love to see the hi-resolution video.

    Hi Russell,
    Thank you for your message. Actually deploying a solution for the live coding in videos was work in progress. This is now fixed.

    When introducing new technologies like FDB, it is always fair to talk about the downside of it. What are the downside or side effect of using a Functionnal DB?
