Some people use the session catalog to grab just the presentations that they either attended, or could not attend.
Other people want a download of every available presentation so they can peruse the entire catalog offline at a later date.
I am one of the latter people.
wget --no-check-certificate -O "SessionTitle".extension "https://static.rainfocus.com/full_path_to_presentation.extension"
which of course can then be run as a batch file to grab them all. Woo hoo !!!
You can download the batch file which contains the 932 download commands here
I can’t make any guarantees the list is complete, or that the script will work without error, but it should be a good starting point, and it will be a lot faster than clicking on each presentation !
If it does not work for you, my apologies. If it does work for you and saves you a lot of time, just don’t forget that I like beer or gin&tonic next time you see me.
Thanks a lot. You have one beer in Kosice, Slovakia
Thanks Connor, where does it save the files to?
Typically current directory
Worked for me – Next time you are in Adelaide!
Worked for me. When u meet me at sangam a beer from me aswell 🙂
Nice. A beer from the netherlands!

you need a more up to date version of wget (get 1.19)
Thanks Connor for sharing, works perfect!
Owe you 1 Gin & Tonic and couple beers!! 🙂
Thanks for your beer-license script! It works perfectly. Is prosecco from Venice the same for you?
Of course ! Especially if I can come to Venice to sample it ! 🙂
Thanks for sharing the useful information Connor. I had issues to run the bat file in Windows as wget utility was not available in my laptop. As a workaround i have used the same contents as .sh in Oracle Linux VM and it worked fine. Will meet you at Sangam in december with a beer 🙂
Thanks Conor for great OOW sessions and this new tip
Come to DOAG Conference in November to get your favourites 🙂

Thanks, it does work.
Just thought I’d mention that on Linux the .bat file needs to be converted to UNIX format (a simple ‘vi’ with “:set notextmode” followed by “:wq” is sufficient), else you’ll get a bunch of HTTP 403 (Forbidden).
Well, I am the one who will not thank you. You’ve just runied my weekend! And maybe the next one too!
Because I have now soooo many great articles to read about misc. Oracle technologies, writenn by great experts!
I am tempted to say “I hate you!”, but after all those great articles, incl. your blog & AskTom, I can just say – I admire you!
Thanks Connor for sharing
could be possible generate this loong list also for windows users 🙂
(new-object system.net.webclient).downloadfile(“https://static.rainfocus.com/oracle/oow17/sess/14976512807560016sBV/PF/Amobee_ODC_OpenWorld_FINAL CR_1507095207967001ztIr.pptx”,”Data Ignites Digital Transformation.pptx”)
Then it is possible to run it in powershell window.
