St. Louis has put on two WordCamps – one each in 2011 and 2012. A third will happen in spring 2014.
Though speakers, attendees and volunteers all declared the 2011 event a rousing success, there remains no video evidence that it ever took place; the video footage, shot in every session, went missing as soon as it left the hands of our local organizers.
Thus in 2012, before we shipped any of the cameras – or memory cards of the footage – out of town, we made sure we had a copy of every session on my hard drive. And over the months that have followed, the sessions have gradually found their way to WordCamp STL Videos.
While we would normally do a fair bit of editing, to make people sound more polished and the action more free-flowing, that kind of artifice wasn’t appropriate for a teaching session. So the only polish we gave these at all was to add opening and closing titles to music at the ends of each vid.
