I'm going out on a limb....which I tend to do from time to time....but I have a proposal for readers of this blog who are interested in getting hold of the download versions of the technical sessions from the developer launch event.
We have a new set of links and they seem to work fine, but what I'd like to do is share them with you folks in this blog entry before we post them on the main site, as a sort of trial ahead of time for people who are eager to get their hands on them, but are tolerant of potential issues.
So....feel free to download them if you want to, but be aware that this is kind of "beta" :-) So if the experience isn't fantastic bear that in mind - but let me know.
I realise this is all a little unorthodox, but that's kind of in my nature. If you're the kind of person who is likely to get distressed if the experience isn't good then I suggest waiting until we post them on the official website, which hopefully should be next week.
One other thing to bear in mind before you dive in: These are zip files, not because we needed to zip them particularly but because it forces a download rather than "buffered stream".
Anyhow, feel free to give these a try. They're still big files so if you have a slow connection it will take quite a while to download them. Let me know how you get on.
