I heard about WordCamp a little while ago because I have Matt on my Twitter and he mentioned something about tickets.
WordCamp is a 2-day conference for WordPress users and developers. The first day will focus on how to be a better blogger, the second on the development and future of WordPress. …To get WordPress users together, learn from each other, figure out the future of publishing on the web, and have a good time [WordCamp]
I’m SO wishing I was there right now, the tickets were dirt cheap and it’s in lovely San Francisco. I suppose I don’t really have an excuse aside from not getting some time off work and not having a (valid) passport – I’d have to do the Bellingham Airport thing again.
I’ve been using WordPress for about 10 months now, I was slow to get started as Miss604.com was Blogger-published since 2004. Since making the switch, which at first was a little scary, I’ve been enlightened and know just how capable WordPress is as a platform. This enabled me to recently single-handedly overhaul my company’s website using WordPress as a CMS. I’m also super excited about a possible new theme or look to Miss604.com, although I don’t really want to stray too far from what it is now.
Regardless, I’ll be keeping on top of the WordCamp action (including WP newbies and veterans alike) through the WordCamp Blog and I’ll also be living vicariously through John Biehler, local Vancouver blogger who is in attendance.
