Session recording access

With so many sessions happening this year, it will be hard to decide which ones you’d like to see live. But not to worry!

You can purchase access to all the session recordings happening July 7-9 (Deep-Dive Day session will not be recorded). Recordings will be available approximately two weeks after the conference, and you’ll be able to view them for three months once they’re available.

You can add session recordings at the time of conference registration or you can sign up later, and the recordings can be purchased even if you can't attend the conference.

How to get the recordings

On the second page of the registration process, select "Session recordings and/or Deep-Dive Day only," and choose "On Demand Content" to receive the recordings. 

Session recording access is $50 for conference attendees and $100 for non-conference attendees.
