Google Launches Dedicated Open Source Channel on YouTube

by Ostatic Staff - Dec. 21, 2010

If you follow Google's involvement in the open source community, you've no doubt come across some of the videos it produces; from tech talks to presentations from Google Summer of Code. The videos are always informative, but finding them is often a matter of luck since their appearance on the company's open source blog has typically been rather random. Google corrected that problem this week with the launch of googleOSPO, a new YouTube channel dedicated to all things open source.

The channel features videos from Jeremy Allison's popular series Geek Time as well as content from content from events like Google Code-in and Google Developer Day London. The YouTube landing page links to related channels like its Open Source Student Programs and Developers pages. Viewers can create playlists of their favorite videos and sign up for instant notification of new content in a single click (YouTube account required). Non-registered users can search videos by content type or show-title, and check recent activity at a glance to find out when new content was uploaded.

If you haven't checked out the googleOSPO page yet, head on over to see what it has to offer. From Linus Torvalds to Greg Kroah Hartman, you don't want to miss the videos from some of the FOSS communities brightest minds.
