It was a great conference. Thank you to everyone who worked hard to put it all together. I know there was a tremendous amount of effort involved. I look forward to the next Drupalcon.

I feel very fortunate to have the biggest Drupalcon yet right here in my backyard, at just the right time. I had a career diversion there for a while, but I've been gradually dipping my toes back into what has become a much bigger community in my absence. Just when I was feeling like my feet were almost wet enough, Drupalcon showed me how much deeper I have left to go - and the prospect of diving in is exciting (CANNONBALL!!!).

Now, back to blogging about Day 2 (who knows when I'll catch up to days 3 & 4...)

The sessions were great and the sense of community was really strong. Congratulations to the organizers. I had a blast.

In every single DrupalCon in the past, there has been a clear indication of where to get videos and audios of presentations.

Where are they?

These are coming soon. Imagine the amount of work to prepare all this stuff, but I am sure the kind people who recorded will share it as soon as they can. My understanding is it may take a couple of weeks to get it ready for publication. Meanwhile, some session material is available with the session announcements on the Drupalcon site.

But I am not funded by any large organization. Looks to me like the process is too ambitious, would have been better to just get out some principal sessions first, then the rest later.

If you think it can be ran better I highly encourage you to get involved and help to make it better. You don't need to be funded by any large organization or funded at all. The awesome volunteers (emphasis on volunteers) are putting in a lot of time and effort to get the video out and up onto the web and none of them are funded by large organizations.

If you think the process could be modified the best thing you can do is not to comment on the what the process looks like but rather to get involved in the process.

I go to conference to learn new tricks, connect with the people who belong to the community I am proudly a part of, witness the growth of the industry which is my bread and butter, and to share the excitement and successes of others who are my peers... DrupalCon 2008 has not only met all my reasons to attend a conference, it gave me a reason to look forward to one in future...Heart-felt thanks for organizing this amazing conference and will see you all in the near future.

Is there any video of this conference?
I want to learn from it

edward.peters’s picture

Yes, all sessions were videoed and these videos should be available within a couple of weeks. They will be well worth watching.

liquidcms’s picture

yes, videos and audio is all very nice - but are the session slides stored in a repo somewhere?

Yes, it was a superb conference, and well worth the time and expense of travelling from the UK. This was my first DrupalCon and I was impressed by the friendliness of everyone (I knew no one beforehand), the quality of presentation and discussion, and the sense of community. It feels a privilege to be part of this community, which is certainly going places. Great thanks to the team that organized everything.

What a wonderful experience DrupalCon was! It was my first such conference (of any kind), and I was so impressed not only by the quantity and quality of information provided but also by the enthusiasm and friendliness shown by everyone.

I had to miss Friday's code sprint and am wondering what was worked on and accomplished. I've been scanning Planet Drupal but have not seen much written about it yet. Can anyone offer a brief report?
