I’m really enjoying the updates via Heather Acton who’s keeping the entire community updated with how things are going in the Events space over at Make. Her recent update shares the fact that they’ve begun to lock down requirements for both the mentor and mentee so that firm expectations can be established for the best possible experience for everyone. For example, if you want to become a mentor for another possible WordCamp organizer, you’ll want to walk through this list first: Mentors must have organized at least 1 WordCamp before 1-3 hours per week will be dedicated to supporting your mentee Willing […]
Brandon Dove has shared news that the SVN repo for the WordCamp Base Theme has been setup! For those curious about what’s powering it all you can now jump in and take a look as well as share your ideas and genius on how to make it even better. You can go there directly via SVN and Trac but make sure you don’t post any tickets quite yet since the WordCamp component isn’t finalized. It’ll be soon though.
I’m going to be covering WordCamp Phoenix 2013 this weekend, which starts tomorrow morning! This particular WordCamp has 3 full days of awesome things planned:
February is the month for love and especially more WordPress love from our international friends. There’s three Wordcamps planned for the month of February. We have a new location, a returning location, and one running for the third year! Here’s the list of the February Wordcamps: WordCamp Bologna, February 9, 2013 in Bologna, Itally WordCamp Jerusalem, February 20, 2013 in Jerusalem WordCamp Pune, February 23-24, 2013 in Pune, India
The team’s been having a lot of fun recording Hello Dolly and we’re stoked about the comments, emails, tweets, and phone calls we’ve been receiving (yes, even the pranks!). In this episode, John, Chris, Jared, and I all sit down to talk about the upcoming WordCamp Atlanta, some of our thoughts on other publishing platforms (such as Tumblr and Svbtle), and take a call from Chris Brogan about pop overs and permission based marketing. For a a more detailed recap, be sure to review the show notes and check out the links we’ve provided; otherwise, listen up, tune in, or do […]
As we shared earlier this month, our team here at WP Daily are helping to lead and organize WordCamp Atlanta and every day that passes is one more day closer to the event. But we, like many other WordCamps, need the help of the incredible volunteer base that exists in our community to pull it off – and I’m always amazed at how it all comes together in the end. It’s one of the best things about our community and it’s the thing that’s really going to speak to those that have not yet experienced WordPress and keep them coming back. […]
I do not live in the United States where there is a strong presence of WordPress. I am in Nigeria and presently in Nigeria there is no active WordPress community and there is no WordPress Meetups at all. I want to change that. I have taken it upon myself to have a WordPress Meetup started and have a WordCamp in Nigeria this year (the last time a WordCamp was held in Nigeria was in 2010) and this is my story how I found WordPress and how I fell in love with it. Getting started as a designer/developer is something that […]
Another successful WordCamp. This is the third in my series of posts about the event; the first was an introduction, the second was a live-blog during the event, and this one is a recap. This was (I think) my fourth WordCamp in Victoria; given my past attendance, I knew what to expect from this one: lots of networking, interesting and instructional sessions, a few light-bulb-over-the-head moments, and a good lunch. Credit goes to Paul Holmes and crew for keeping this yearly attraction going! The day started with an introduction from Paul, and a few door prizes were given away (this […]
