Videos from Process Mining Camp 2012

Editing the camp video recordings

Process Mining Camp 2012 was a day full of insightful talks and conversations. We had more than 70 process mining pioneers who came to Eindhoven1 to share their experiences, tips and tricks, and a passion for process mining.

Since we were expecting some true diamonds to be among the talks we recorded all sessions on video. And diamonds we got. The first two talks are now available on the new camp website here. We will be adding talks in their historical order over the next weeks, as fast as we can2.

The first video we published is the welcome address by yours truly. Not really a glowing example of my public speaking skills indeed3, but I am sure you will like the story of Matthew Fontaine Maury, a 19th century process mining legend.

Frank van Geffen at Process Mining Camp 2012

Right on the heels follows our first practice talk, by Frank van Geffen from the Rabobank in the Netherlands. Frank gives a detailed and honest account of his activities in promoting process mining within the Rabobank. A welcome reality check, refreshingly lacking in hyperbole, I am sure this talk gives all of us hope for the next time we struggle with organizational and data difficulties.

As mentioned above, we have six more gems that we will publish over the next few weeks, as fast as time permits, so stay tuned. We will announce new video releases here on our blog, and you can also follow us on Twitter for timely updates on this and all things Fluxicon.

Head on over to the new Process Mining Camp 2012 website to watch our first talks, and continue the conversation here in the comments!


  1. Some enthusiasts even came from as far away as Finland, the UK, and Switzerland. 
  2. As you may know, editing video can be very time-consuming, and transcoding it for distribution is one of the few remaining tasks which can stress your CPU for hours, even on recent hardware. Customer service and further development of Disco of course have some priority over that, but we’ll hurry. 
  3. In my defense, I came rushing from setting up the recording equipment right before my talk, so there you go. Some days you eat the bear, and some days, well some days the bear eats you…
