Are the BUILD sessions' presentations available?

    Question

  • Are the BUILD sessions' presentations available in powerpoint format so that we can have a look or keep it in collection. I know, the videos are available. But, sometimes the presentations can help more. And requires a small space and time comparing to videos for downloading.

  • Please, see each session separately, some of them have pptx, some do not.

  • Exactly like what Igor has told you.
    You can just search for the sessions on channel9

    (e.g http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/BUILD/BUILD2011/TOOL-531T ) it says "slides" above the video downloads.

  • The RSS feeds link only to videos. it would be very useful if the RSS feeds also linked to PowerPoint presentations so one wouldn't have to open each and every session URL one by one to download the slides.

  • On this page

    http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/BUILD/BUILD2011?sort=status&direction=asc#tab_sortBy_status

    there are direct links to slides for most sessions.

  • Thanks. I was looking for the PPTs for a long time. Some of them are pretty big for a Powerpoint presentation (70 MB+). Surprising especially because PPTX is ZIP-compressed.

  • ZIP does not compress movies and pictures a lot, so if there is a movie inside the presentation or lots of pictures, it might be the cause.

  • Yes that might be the cause, maybe some of them have uncompressed images or huge videos embedded, but images and videos themselves can be stored with lossy compression inside the PPT.
