Oh, this is nice. In the spirit of all these aggressive Black Friday offers, CocoaConf has announced a substantial deal for what they’re calling Plaid Friday. On November 23 only, you can score a registration to next week’s CocoaConf Raleigh for $50 off and get free admission to my Thursday All-Day Core Audio Tutorial (or the introductory iOS Tutorial taught by Walter Tyree).
In another fit of geeky Black Friday goodness, Telestream is offering 30% off all their products, including the screencast recorder ScreenFlow (which I use), and the livestream production suite Wirecast, which I’ll be getting for $!50 off, thankyouverymuch.
And that takes us back to CocoaConf, actually, because I’m going to be livestreaming my two Saturday morning talks from there on UStream. The events are now scheduled on the invalidstream: Core Audio in iOS 6 at 9:00AM EST (14:00 UTC), and Mobile Movies with HTTP Live Streaming at 10:45 (15:45 UTC). Apparently, I can’t deep link into the scheduled events on Ustream, so please visit the invalidstream channel and sign up for a reminder if you like. And yes, the live streaming talk will itself be streamed, and that stream will discuss how the stream is created and played (on OS X and iOS devices). So that’s ridiculously meta, at a minimum. Also, I’m bringing a camcorder, tripod, and 15′ FireWire cable, so I should be able to get a halfway decent longshot for the talks that can capture both me and the screen (and the audio we’ll create in the Core Audio talk).
