I haven’t watched them, but all the SFHTML5 presentations are listed here. Tonight’s talk will be uploaded later. (Apache OpenWhisk – it looks like software for self-hosted “serverless” cloud functions)

Personally, I just wrote my own talks while down in San Diego. That’s me in the two right-most rectangles.

Developing your own talks is a good way of practicing the elevator-pitch proposal style seen when wooing investors. You need to describe in a concise fashion what’s to be discussed usually in problem/solution/detail format.

This is a nice general audience talk on the use of Python in the sciences. All the astronomy fun facts given in the first 13-14 minutes are especially cool.
