    Hopefully someone will start asking for better open source compatibility of SteamWorks, ie. "being able to write public code that calls into SteamWorks API". I mean wtf. Do they expect every game dev that doesn't use C/C++ to write his own binding from scratch??

      According to the FAQ the talks will be recorded. However whether this also means they will be publicly available remains to be seen. Lets hope so.

        If not people should remind them of the openness they are talking about a lot.

        Especially having Ryan Gordons talk on Valves Youtube channel would be very valuable for any developer who did not make it to the conference. It would be in their best interest.

            I admit would like them to be public, but at the same time I can understand them not wanting to, has it is suppose to be an off the record game developer conference, out of sight of game journalist and fan, so developer can speak openly, without getting scrutinized.

              I'm pretty sure the "off the records" is just so developers won't have to deal with harassing journalists at the event, but I don't think withholding purely technical talks such as SDL2/Linux porting makes much sense.

                "Optimizing Linux games for AMD Graphics using GPU PerfStudio2"

                no need for talk here... if one looks at their Linux driver. listening to any AMD advice containing Linux and performance optimization might be most fatal mistake one could ever make

                also, clicking link on the page is far more readable than PNG
