Why settle for boring numbers and static graphs to describe your open source project when you can dynamically display the movements and activity within your project? Gource is an amazing and flexible tool that can be used to display activity from your repositories using a video visualization that people love!

With this flexibility comes a dizzying array of options and configurations. This talk will show some of the more useful options within Gource to help you select the ones that will work best for your project. Gource can also be used to display non-repository information (bug trackers or mailing lists) using the custom log format. Other topics include related tools, generating video files, and more.

The goal is for you to walk away from this talk with ideas and techniques for how to create awesome videos showing the activity within your open source projects and communities.
