I lead the curl project and this is how it works

Friday, June 5th, 2015

I did this 50 minute talk on May 21 2015 for a Swedish company. With tongue in cheek subtitled “from hobby to world domination”. I think it turned out pretty decent and covers what the project is, how we work on it and what I do to make it run. Some of the questions are not easy to hear but in general it works out fine. Enjoy!

My series of weekly videos, in lack of a better name called daniel weekly, reached episode 35 today. I’m celebrating this fact by also adding an RSS-feed for those of you who prefer to listen to me in an audio-only version.

As an avid podcast listener myself, I can certainly see how this will be a better fit to some. Most of these videos are just me talking anyway so losing the visual shouldn’t be much of a problem.

A typical episode

I talk about what I work on in my open source projects, which means a lot of curl stuff and occasional stuff from my work on Firefox for Mozilla. I also tend to mention events I attend and HTTP/networking developments I find interesting and grab my attention. Lots of HTTP/2 talk for example. I only ever express my own personal opinions.

It is generally an extremely geeky and technical video series.

Every week I mention a (curl) “bug of the week” that allows me to joke or rant about the bug in question or just mention what it is about. In episode 31 I started my “command line options of the week” series in which I explain one or a few curl command line options with some amount of detail. There are over 170 options so the series is bound to continue for a while. I’ve explained ten options so far.

I’ve set a limit for myself and I make an effort to keep the episodes shorter than 20 minutes. I’ve not succeed every time.

I mentioned the talk before, and now the video has been made available. About 25 minutes with me presenting curl.

daniel.haxx.se episode 8

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Today I hesitated to make my new weekly video episode. I looked at the viewers number and how they basically have dwindled the last few weeks. I’m not making this video series interesting enough for a very large crowd of people. I’m re-evaluating if I should do them at all, or if I can do something to spice them up…

… or perhaps just not look at the viewers numbers at all and just do what think is fun?

I decided I’ll go with the latter for now. After all, I enjoy making these and they usually give me some interesting feedback and discussions even if the numbers are really low. What good is a number anyway?

This week’s episode:

Personal

Firefox

Fun

HTTP/2

TALKS

  • I’m offering two talks for FOSDEM

daniel.haxx.se week #3

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

I won’t keep posting every video update here, but I mostly wanted to mention that I’ve kept posting a weekly video over at youtube basically explaining what’s going on right now within my dearest projects. Mostly curl and some Firefox stuff.

This week: libcurl server cert verification API got a bashing at SEC-T, is HTTP for UDP a good idea? How about adding HTTP cache support to libcurl? HTTP/2 is getting deployed as we speak. Interesting curl bug when used by XBMC. The patch series for Firefox bug 939318 is improving slowly – will it ever land?

Video perhaps?

Monday, September 8th, 2014

I decided to try to do a short video about my current work right now and make it available for you all. I try to keep it short (5-7 minutes) and I’m certainly no pro at it, but I will try to make a weekly one for a while and see if it gets any fun. I’m going to read your comments and responses to this very eagerly and that will help me decide how I will proceed on this experiment.

Enjoy.

Future transports, the video

Monday, April 4th, 2011

The talk I did at FSCONS 2010 titled “Future Transports” has now been made available online and you can see the whole thing. It is split up in three separate video snippets. Click on the picture below to get started:

fscons2010-futuretransports

I originally put the videos embedded here on my blog, but it turned out to be a really certain way to kill Firefox so it turned out to be annoying. Now you’ll instead get handed over to the video on vimeo’s site.

Fosdem 2011: my libcurl talk on video

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Kai Engert was good enough to capture all the talks in the security devroom at Fosdem 2011, and while I’m seeding the full torrent I’ve made my own talk available as a direct download from here:

Fosdem 2011: security-room at 14:15 by Daniel Stenberg

The thing is about 107MB big, 640×480 resolution and is roughly 26 minutes playing time. WebM format.

My Rockbox talk at Fosdem 2010

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

As I’ve mentioned several times before in this blog, I did a talk about Rockbox and reverse engineering at Fosdem 2010 Feburary 6-7 in Brussels, and since there was no “pre-arranged” video recording of the talks in the embedded devroom, Peter D’Hoye stepped up and recorded the whole thing using his Nokia n900 phone.

I decided to not make the slides for this talk available separately, as they were more or less the same as the ones I used for my FSCONS 2009 talk, so you can go watch them instead if this video isn’t enough!

Rockbox-talk-Fosdem2010

To view it, I suggest you use VLC or similar and tell it to stream directly from one of these URLs, the file is a 1.1GB one with 848×480 resolution running for 51 minutes. Annoyingly, none of the usual free online video services allow this long ones.
