Whiteboard

[mpt] Developers shouldn't have to guess whether the topic they need help with (e.g. "Setting your app's security policy" or "Proxy network connections") is covered by a text tutorial or a video tutorial. Therefore, videos shouldn't be a separate section. It should be a media type that can be included in articles in topic-based sections.

* Developer.ubuntu.com IA review
* A new videos subsection under resources
  * Separate page with videos
    * Sections: Featured video, Get started videos, etc.
    * The list of videos should (if possible) be automatically generated
    * We want to update video thumbnails regularly
    * We'll link to specific videos from other pages
    * An article per video
    * Video icon proposal: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuFriendly?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=process.png by sergiomeneses
