So far 90 sessions that were recorded at DrupalCon DC are online and ready to watch. You can watch them at, and you can find them in the comments of each session the DrupalCon website. We’ll also be tweaking the DrupalCon site to make the videos more accessible in the coming week.

How is it possible that 90 sessions were recorded, edited, and uploaded in just six days? The credit goes entirely to the video crew, headed by Ron Mulero, who worked very quickly to produce high quality videos and get them online. Ron, a member of DC Drupal community who recently transplanted to Boston, coordinated the entire effort, including devising a plan for how to get almost 100 sessions recorded and online in a just a few days, recruiting videographers from local universities and from the Drupal community, supplying equipment and instructions on how to convert and upload the videos, working at DrupalCon to convert and upload the videos, and coordinating it all. We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to Ron for his amazing work on this. Ron posted his plan here if you’re interested in knowing how he organized this.

We’d also like to thank the individuals who recorded the videos: Alan Doucette, David Lanier, Chris Rowe, Robert Nelson Vance, March Espedido, Marc Tan, and (UPDATED) Prameya Bhandari. You all did a fantastic job – thank you.

In all, 93 out of the 106 sessions presented at DrupalCon were recorded by this crew. We know that many people were shooting sessions with personal video cameras – if you have a recording of any of the sessions not recorded by the video team or of any of the BoFs, please pass us the links! We’d love to share these with the community.

Another big thank you to Ron and to the entire video team. Check out the videos of the sessions you missed, or the ones you want to see again.


I've also posted audio only from (most) all the sessions. (Basically all the ones that had an .ogv) They're all in .ogg (.oga!) format, converting them to other formats is left as an exercise for the reader:

Prameya "Mukti" Bhandari - a scholarship recipient - came down from Syracuse at the last minute and put in an amazing job recording many of the sessions.

You guys are amazing! Never before have this many videos been recorded at a Drupalcon and then posted up so quickly. Thank you!!!

Thanks for all the work you and the rest of the organizers and volunteers did, Bonnie. It was a great conference.

As far as the videos, how are the they and the ancillary materials like presenters' slides and the session summary pages licensed? Can we assume they're all under one of the CC types?

To the video team & Drupal organizers - thank you so very much for video taping the DrupalCon sessions and then getting them edited and online so quickly! There were several times at DrupalCon where I wanted to attend both concurrent sessions, and now I'll be able to do so.

Any word on the "Migration" session? I'm interested in watching this one again, but I'm not seeing it on yet.

Could you possibly post a list of sessions that were not recorded? I guess there are currently 13 of them?

"Migration" and the last handful of sessions should be uploaded shortly.

    • Going Live: Content Scheduling with Slot Machine, Marco Carbone (video recording corrupted)
