WordPress is in Chicago?

Today I reach out from a Student Center in ad DePaul University in Chicago.

The purpose of my visit is to attend a Wordcamp with my colleges from Vivid Image.

I question I was asked most before I left was “What is Wordcamp?”. So here is an explanation……

Wordcamp is a convention for WordPress users, developers, business owners, interested parties, and others just looking get out of the house. Here we get together to share ideas, and learn from each other. Now that WordPress has become the most popular blogging/website platform there is quite a need for these large meetups. With hundreds of?attendees and Wordcamps held year round all over the world, it is no surprise that this has become a big deal.

I new addition to this year’s Chicago Wordcamp is the “Newbie” wodpress user class. It filled up almost immediately, creating plans for a large session next year. If you subscribe to this blog, it is most likely that you have or currently use WordPress so you know how cool it is.

I plan to bring back with me new ideas to make my WordPress projects and the Web a whole better.

A few of you know about my latest plugin in development “Simple Links”. I was hoping to have it complete so I could announce it this weekend but ?no dice. It is now scheduled to be published in September.

Hope to see you all at the next Wordcamp!!!
