I had such a great time! I learned so much! I forgot my phone at home and had to navigate from wifi spot to wifi spot like some crazy urban explorer!
Here is Matt Mullenweg delivering the State of the Word.
They gave away lots of free stickers and free t shirts and apparently, free Google Cardboards…but I missed that table. (but Donna, who is all things awesome, found it, got one, and showed it to us later). It’s lots of short talks – there’s three at a time so you’re pretty much guaranteed to find one that’s interesting. All the cool kids hung out in the hallways chatting up the vendors and one another; I, true to form, dutifully followed my premade lecture schedule. Because I’m cool like that. There were also parties and a BBQ in the evenings but I did not plan for that with babysitting so…next time. But the great news is – WordCamp US will be in Philadelphia again (yay!) this coming December, so consider going. It’s only $40 and you get lunch and meet nice people and you’ll learn a lot and did I mention the stickers? Seriously, it’s worth it, especially if you’re within a few hours of Philly.
