45,000 people in 3 1/2 months have visited Parleys. Are you one of them? If not, you’re missing out — Parleys is a website that streams video, allowing visitors to watch and vote on various informational, technical talks. Built on Confluence(!), Parleys is a really cool and innovative way to use and customise the wiki.
Many of the presentations on Parleys have actually been recorded at the annual Java conference, JavaPolis. Both JavaPolis and Parleys are creations of Stephan Janssen.
This new Confluence case study on web publishing on reveals how Stephan creatively uses the enterprise wiki for JavaPolis and Parleys. Here’s a extract:
The Parleys site looks great! Tell us more about how it works.
I released Parleys at JavaPolis last year. It already has about 60 talks published and we’re getting hammered by visits. People vote on their favourite talks to get an idea of what people like and dislike. We’re running into almost 5-6,000 hits per day (top 10,000).
