Mistakes in the text on Julia YT channel

Thank you for this very valuable information. I didn’t know about that. Badly placed placeholder timestamps generated some problems as you can read here. I think @logankilpatrick and @miguelraz should check this option.

Roadmap to Julia BLAS and LinearAlgebra, Chris Elrod, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ8nvlURX4M

In description we have.
BEGINNING
BLAS & LAPACK are an integral component of many numerical algorithms. Due to their importance, a lot of effort has gone into optimizing ASM/C/Fortran implementations.
Nonetheless, early work demonstrated Julia implementations were often faster than competitors, while laying groundwork for new routines specialized for new problems.

I think we can change it to

In description we have “Abstract:”, but there is no text below it.

As usually, proposition of timestamps.

Breakout Session — Graphics and Visualization, discussion led by Daniel C. Jones at JuliaCon 2014, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpFcd-nklCs.

We have here slightly different kind of problem. This video is 1:15:44 long, but from what I see first 49:32 is video already available on channel as Gadfly: Native Julia Plotting and Visualization, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wsn5SZDkMeI. As such this video should be edited in appropriate way.

JuliaCon 2014 videos titles use different convention that these from recant JuliaCons. This is great that are all available and put in one playlist on YT, but I still believe that we make watching and referencing them better. Below I presented my idea how they should be changed. Of course, anyone can improve my suggestions.

This covers most of the videos from JuliaCon 2014 YT’s playlist. I can miss some and I also excluded Breakout Session — Graphics and Visualization due to problem with it mentioned in previous post.

One more remark about titles. In the titles of the talks you can find sometimes “JuliaCon2021” sometimes “JuliaCon 2021”. Since it seems that it doesn’t matter I will propose to always use more pleasant to eye “JuliaCon 2021”.

In previous post about titles for videos from JuliaCon 2014 I already use this convention.

Multi-threading in Julia with PARTR, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfiRnfKxI64

Timestamps in description aren’t properly adjusted to the left.

Literate Programming with Literate.jl, Fredrik Ekre, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tfp1WEdYfqk

Does anyone else also lack sound until around 1:10?

Topic of re-cutting videos from JuliaCon 2019 becoming long and still isn’t ended, so I moved it to separate thread.
