Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I attend this?

Are you building anything that involves video? Consumer demand for video entertainment is exploding and at the same time the use of video as a “utility” in the workplace is growing at a record pace, so video development is hard to avoid -- but it’s also hard.

Join this course if you’re a developer looking to learn video, or a video expert looking to improve your software development skills, or a beginner coder looking to understand the practical elements of creating a video streaming workflow.

What should you know ahead of time?

Developers of all experience levels are welcome, even beginners. You don’t need to know anything about video ahead of time, but you should have some of these basic skills to get the most value from this course: familiar with using a text editor, some familiarity using the terminal or command prompt, basic HTML / JavaScript / other programming language development experience.

What should I bring with me?

You’ll need:

  1. A Mac or PC with recently updated operating system (released in the past 2 years).

  2. Any Text Editor installed

  3. For the In-Depth Encoding & Player Breakout session you'll need Python 3 and Chrome installed.

Am I guaranteed a slot?

Registration is subject to availability as we have a maximum class size. Bitmovin and G&L reserve the right to enforce this class size limit and also ensure that participants have sufficient preparation to benefit from the workshop.

See you there!
