We have used FFmpeg for years at Hudl as our go to source for video editing. Our FFmpeg interactions were all relatively simple and were no more complex than just passing around strings to a process. String manipulation wouldn’t cut it when Campaign video automation came into the picture. Find out more about how we took a complex video editing task and simplified the process with the creation of this new framework.
In the eighteen months that I’ve been at Hudl, I’ve been on partially distributed teams. Currently, I’m the PM of a team of twelve, and six of those team members are remote. Because of that, I’ve had lots of opportunities to find out what works and what doesn’t work when you run retrospectives for distributed teams. In this post, I want to highlight the mistakes I’ve made, and then describe some of the best practices that make our retrospectives go smoothly.
