Day One: A Live Streamer’s Perspective of WordCamp US

Day one of WordCamp US is complete. The event started streaming at 9AM Eastern and concluded at about 6:30PM. I was not able to attend the event in person so I spent the day watching the live stream. Although the site and streams suffered technical problems at the beginning of the event, they regained stability within an hour.

The live streams are broken up into four different links and include captions below each video. For the most part, the captions are accurate but there were many times where they generated typographical errors. However, captions are better than no captions at all.

I found the audio quality excellent and I rarely encountered buffering issues. I heard a swear word at least twice over the live stream but it didn’t detract from my experience. A number of other viewers also recognized the stream’s stability.

While I’m not able to experience WordCamp US in person, the live streams and the event’s hashtag on Twitter is the next best thing. Live streaming for day two starts at 9AM Eastern and there are still plenty of tickets available. Based on my experience today, I can confidently say the live streams are an excellent value. If you watched the live stream, tell us about your experience.
