WordCamp San Francisco has always been the end all be all of WordCamps and with that it’s always one of my favorites. After being on the WordCamp circuit for so long, most all of my friends are in the WordPress community and strung out all over the country/world so obviously I don’t get to see them very often. San Francisco is always a great opportunity to reconnect with most all of my WordPress friends, so besides it being a great event it’s also like a family reunion for me and I love that!
I’m looking very forward to seeing everyone there and also with WDS being a distributed company I’ve never met some of the folks I work with now. The WDS crew is sharing a large house while in San Francisco so that will be great fun (and likely crazy times) and I’m looking very forward to hanging out with all of my coworkers.
As for the conference I think I’m most looking forward to catching Carrie Dils’ talk on Collaboration Not Competition. This is a great subject and with so many WordPress developers, plugin/theme authors, etc out there I think this talk will be very beneficial as we sometimes forget that there’s plenty of work to go around and finding good solid folks to work with (not against) is a great thing for all involved. She’s also a fellow Texan so there’s that piece too 🙂
I’m really excited to see all of my old friends and make some new ones at WordCamp San Francisco this year – make sure and some say hi if you see me!
