WordCamp NYC Video Recap: WordPress as CMS, 5-Minute Talks, and More
Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve published every video we could collect from WordCamp NYC this past November. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get everything, but there are some fantastic sessions here and I thought it’d be great to give you a rundown of what’s available. These sessions are really worthwhile.
If you don’t have a lot of time available, why not check out one or two of the five-minute sessions?
(Please note that some of the videos were recorded at very low audio levels. You may have to turn your speakers up a bunch to hear well.)
Jane Wells and Steve Bruner kicked things off with these opening remarks.

Many thanks go out to the videographers who took the time and effort to both capture and send us these videos.
The next WordCamp up for posting is WordCamp Boston. The first wave of sessions will begin showing up today, and the rest will follow over the coming weeks. We’ve also got some new tutorials from users like you on the way.
If you attend a WordCamp and you have experience recording video of speakers, why not think about bringing your ability to the table and volunteering to record some or all the sessions? WordCamps are always looking for sharp, bright volunteers to help bring the experience to others.
If you have video that should be published on WordPress.tv, drop us a line.
