*These conferences don’t record sessions, and I didn’t either.
+These conferences recorded, but haven’t yet released it.

Also, I was one of the co-organizers of TDDConf 2021, the very first international test-driven development conference, and appeared briefly on-screen to introduce speakers and fill time.  I was also the sole organizer of Ruby DAYCamp (no website) 2013, a semi-impromptu “overflow” event for those who applied too late for Ruby DCamp (defunct, site gone).
