RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] EclipseCon stick

+1 for an all-in-one downloadable ZIP of all presentations.
+1 for as much Eclipse based software on the stick (or DVD?) as can go there.
+1 for USB keys for tutorial presenters to pass around latest material.

We've been doing that each year since '06.  Last year one of those showcased AMD machines was the server.  Anything you'd attempt to download from would be redirected to the local mirror inside the conference center, same with the presentations.  The primary goal was to speed up downloads and reduce bandwidth at the site, and for

However, it doesn't occur to everyone to download 4GB of presentations and IDEs while at EclipseCon.

Perhaps we can create a one-file ZIP with everything that would be on this USB key and link to it from the EclipseCON website?

Why not having a server locally to serve downloads and presentations ? The server would be able to download whatever presentation is needed, even at the last minute.

Not sure this is cheaper though. I remember that the Eclipse webmasters had the opportunity to show case their brand new machines last year, or maybe two years ago, so apparently it is possible to come with a server to the conference.

What do you think ?

Hi Team,

I would like to see the presentation materials remain on the stick. This is especially true for the tutorials. The internet service will likely be stellar again this year, but just incase it is down, attendees need to get at the materials quickly.

I have also made use of the stick many times to browse the presentation materials off-line.

If the sticks a 4GB USB keys this year, there should be plenty of space.
