MOV and MP4 on GitHub issues, pages, and more @github
GitHub now supports MOV and MP4 (max 10mb, or 100mb for pro customers). This is GREAT. Being able to share screencasts’, wiring, step by step, and use video in documentation is something we do wherever we can, and now it’s part of GitHub. With video now part of GitHub we’ll be able to document better, share more, and have more content that helps people. Communities can also use video to tell their story, maximize social coding together, and really enhance anything that is on GitHub.
Video files that you drop onto markdown files are now automatically embedded. You can also attach csv, xls, and md files to issues, PRs, and markdown files. AND Pro customers ($4/month) can upload 100MB videos, thanks Nat.
I wrote about this late last year and added a few videos to our awesome- pages:
On a related note, here is my activity 2019, 2020, and 2021. You can see the exact day in March of 2020 where everything stopped and the only focus was/is on COVID related matters.
And some notes to self for future things: Having a how to make your own person GitHub page (markdown) is a great way to get started with coding, even if there is not coding yet. Having folks learn how to make their own personal GitHub page is sorta like making personal HTML pages back in the day which can lead to all sorts of sparks for people to start coding.
Prolly will be part of our GitHub for kids projects I’d like to back to in 2021 if time / resources allows. Mona is on my shelf waiting…
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
