Advent Calendar 2012

This is a collection of YouTube videos as made as an outreach project in December 2012. Each day of Advent gives a different interesting fact about particle physics.

Overview

This is mostly an exercise in using the YouTube Javascript API. It was this project that made me realise that the old Javascript API is now deprecated, which means I will have to update the Marble Hornets project at some point.

Challenges

Challenge: The YouTube Javascript API changed.
Solution: Having already become accustomed to the old YouTube API, it was somewhat frustrating to get used to a new one, but such is life and working with bleeding edge technologies! (Resolved.)
