WordCamp San Francisco is just a few short days away, almost the entire WebDevStudios crew will be in attendance, and I’m pretty pumped about it! We are a remote company, so these get-togethers are always a blast and give us the chance to bond outside of a chatbox. If you follow along with any of the #wdschat tweets, you know we won’t have any difficulty having a good time!
As if hanging out with my crew wasn’t enough reason to head to California, there also happens to be what is shaping up to be the biggest and best WordCamp event EVER. I’m really looking forward to hearing presentations by Mark Jaquith, Alison Barrett, Eric Mann, Andy Skelton, Helen Hou-Sandi, Andrew Nacin, and others, a panel discussion with Jake Goldman, Matt Mullenweg, Shane Pearlman, Brad Williams (my boss), Alex King, and of course, The State of The Word by Matt Mullenweg. It’s a literal who’s who of WordPress, and a rare (and awesome) opportunity to hear so many great names present at one event.
I’m also stoked to be meeting YOU! If you see me, please flag me down and say hi. Even better, ping me on Twitter first and we can figure out a presentation to check out together. We’re one big happy WordPress family and I want to know as many of you as I can!
It’s pretty unbelievable that visiting San Francisco/California/the West Coast is the least exciting thing I’m looking forward to, but I anticipate that being pretty awesome too.. especially considering we’ll be taking a WDS bay cruise and tour of Alcatraz (anyone know if there’s wifi out there?). Did I mention we have a good time?
Hope to see you there!
