WordCamp Indonesia. The event was very well organized, with a core team (the same group from last year) involved in putting together all the logistics, handling media, organizing speakers etc. They handled things very well, despite a few problems which were out of their control (like bad name-tag printing and their stickers/WordPress buttons not making it in the mail!) and the day seemed to be a success for everyone.
Below are the slides and notes from my presentation, which covered the current state of WordPress, what’s coming up in the next release and some of the related projects. You can also get the slides on SlideShare. Click the link below the slides to expand my full outline/notes.
While I’m here in Santiago, one of the things I’ll be doing is putting together a presentation for WordCamp Indonesia. I’ll be keynoting, although I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be covering yet; it’s sure to be something interesting 😉
If you’re anywhere near Indonesia, book your tickets around January 30, 2010 and come and chat about WordPress with a bunch of like-minded folks! Michael Koenig (a fellow Automattician) will be joining me, and spreading the love about IntenseDebate (which is a major sponsor of WordCamp ID).
Well, it’s a wrap. WordCamp Philippines was, in this humble attendee and speaker’s opinion, a great success. A big congratulations to Blogie, Chattee, Jim and the other organizers/volunteers on a very well-executed event! Mostly for my own records (*cough* lack of memory *cough*), here’s a run-down on my time in Manila.
This weekend, I’m in Makati City, Manila for WordCamp Philippines. It’s the first time I’ve been over here and it’s been quite a trip (I wish I was staying for a lot longer!).
I’m planning on posting a more detailed entry covering my trip here, but in the meantime I wanted to get my slides up here so that I could point people to them immediately. It’s embedded below so please check it out, it’s an extended version of the presentation from last weekend at WordCamp LA.
Here’s the version of the slide deck that I used to present earlier today at WordCamp LA. My speech was called Meet the Family and it was an introduction to some other WordPress projects that you might not know about. I think it seemed to go down quite well, and people seemed to like it. If you were there (or once you’ve checked out the slides), I’d love to hear if you have any suggestions for improvements. I’m presenting this again at WordCamp Philippines next weekend but with some improvements, so I’m looking forward to it.
The weekend following WordCamp Los Angeles, I will also be speaking at WordCamp Philippines! This event is a one-day one, being held in Manila on September 19. I’ve never been to Manila so I’m really looking forward to it (although I’m definitely not looking forward to the long flight and jetlag).
I’ll be giving my talk called “Meet the Family”, which is an introduction to some of the other WordPress-related projects going on which you may not have heard about. I will have just given it (for the first time) the weekend before at WordCamp LA, so hopefully I’ll be able to improve it based on feedback from that event!
On September 12, WordCamp LA will bring you all kinds of WordPress-y goodness in the Los Angeles area. The day-long event is being held at Loyola Marymount University (right near LAX which is handy for anyone flying in), and will give you a day jam-packed with all sorts of juicy tips, tricks, tools and general information relating to your favorite state-of-the-art publishing platform: WordPress.
