  • Prerecs have already been posted, yay! You can find them on the talk pages and at (We'll figure out how to get the Q&As.)
  • Thanks to everyone who submitted talks to EmacsConf, including those whose talks didn't make it into this year. We'll be sharing more resources as they come in, so subscribe to
  • Next steps
  • Thanks again
    • Speakers, volunteers
    • Karl Voit for managing the pad
    • Bhavin Gandhi and Hannah Miller for help with the captions
    • Free Software Foundation, especially the FSF tech team, for their continued help and support
    • Fosshost, for BigBlueButton server and for ftp-upload server
    • Computer Science Club of the University of Waterloo, for continuing hosting the videos/files on the CSC mirror server
    • Jan Prunk (yang), for EU mirror of EmacsConf videos/files:
    • Wojciech Siewierski (vifon), for assisting zaeph with his scripts last minute
    • Grant Shangreaux, for beautiful music :) (under CC BY-SA 4.0)
    • the developers and maintainers of all the things that made this possible, with a special shout-out to:
      • Random User (rndusr), whose subed.el made it easy to caption these talks inside Emacs
      • And Qiantan Hong (qhong), author/maintainer of crdt.el which we used for sharing Emacs buffers between organizers
    • Organizers
    • Everyone


  • I really appreciate the approach of doing things prerecorded and having captions.
  • (please add a contact form for the website to make it easier for volunteers to sign up, sending an initial email can be psychologically intimidating.)
    • i am willing to volunteer to think about /work on the form
    • thanks! not sure if adding something like formspree would be counterproductive, but coming up with a list of ways to help out in an email takes a lot more energy than just adding your name and email to a list of potential volunteers.
  • we'll recommend opening the .webm directly as the main option
  • i managed to get a few people to watch my talk afterwards. letting them know it was only 10 minutes helped. non-emacs folks even :)
