no need to worry. :)

i've attended all of them, and the content is not 'going down' at all. last year was a sort of hackathon where we all worked on projects with the help of ssolie, broadblues, and others. this year there were tons of topics over two days, including:

  • walking through the API changes introduced with AOS4.1 final edition
  • creating filesystems with the vector-port API and diskio.library
  • new opportunities introduced with the new console.device
  • walking through code examples using the new extended-memory objects
  • very, very cool walkthough of composited video capabilities
  • how to use the new BOOPSI menuclass
  • an in-depth discussion of the new unified graphics.library

these are more advanced topics than in the past, and every year the topics get more in-depth. so we all learn a ton and have a great time. usually key developers are a part of it; last year it was andy broad. this year it was rene olsen. so although the wiki may not reflect it, we get through a bunch of useful material.

there's a reason i try and get folks to attend every year. it's worth it. ;)

Any plan to publish what has been done like what CBM did in the past?

@kamelito

unfortunately the video equipment we hoped to have record all of this did not arrive in time. :(

the only thing out there is the overview pages (link), but it's not the same. as always the best plan is to attend in-person.
