Speaking at WordCamp San Francisco: Organizing Meetups and WordCamps

I’m excited to be heading down to San Francisco in a couple weeks to present at WordCamp San Francisco, the annual worldwide gathering of WordPress users, developers, and enthusiasts. I’ll be giving a talk on Sunday the 14th titled IRL FTW! Organizing Meetups and WordCamps, speaking about some lessons learned over the past four years of experience with WordCamps and local meetup groups. I’ll be covering some of the basics as well as some tips and tricks to help ensure events that foster learning as well as happy attendees!

I'm speaking at WordCamp San Francisco 2011!

  • Facebook comments should make Columbian.com friendlier
