The Ultimate Script to download SharePoint Conference 2014 Videos AND slides! by Vlad Catrinescu.
From the post:
After everyone posted about 10 script versions to download the SharePoint Conference 2014 videos I decided to add some extra value before releasing mine! This is what my script does:
- Downloads all the SPC14 Sessions and Slides
- Groups them by folders
- Makes sure no errors come up due to Illegal File names.
- If you stop the script and restart in the middle, it will start where it left off and not from beginning.
The Total size will be a bit under 70GB. (emphasis added)
I’m always looking for scripts that will help you collect data and this sounded interesting.
Well, until I read it’s about 70GB of presentations/videos on SharePoint! 😉
Still, I suppose it will be useful for data mining about SharePoint.
And it should give you a good idea of what the baseline is for SharePoint-like services.
(All teasing to one side, what SharePoint attempts to address is a hard problem. Poor project design and what I interpret as a desire to prevent data access are not the fault of SharePoint. Not that I am a SharePoint fan but fair is fair.)
