    Daniel,

    WIll any of these be recorded and made available online? – I’d certainly be interested in seeing the Matt trick talk.

  2. I don’t think any of mine will be recorded, though NICTA says they’ll release the summer school videos, which is 2.5 hours of me on Bayes and MCMC, followed by 1.5 hours on Stan, followed by a fumbling 1 hour live demo of Stan.

    As to the “Matt trick” talk, we call it the non-centered parameterization now, following previous literature (for once, Matt didn’t get there first!). But you’re in luck, because Michael Betancourt wrote it up as a paper, which is available on arXiv: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1312.0906.pdf
