WordCamp Omaha 2016 – No Coasting

This past weekend took me to Nebraska to attend and speak at WordCamp Omaha. It was my first time to this camp and also to Nebraska. Omaha is a lively city with a rich history and the event was an interesting one with a unique schedule and sessions.

WordCamp Sacramento 2016 – The Goldrush

California’s capital held its second annual WordCamp Sacramento this weekend at Sacramento State University’s Harper Alumni Center. #WCSAC spanned two days and offered two separate tracks, Calaveras and El Dorado, in the theme of the gold rush. Compared to last year when it was just getting its legs underneath it, WCSAC has really grown into a camp to be reckoned with.

WordCamp San Antonio 2016 – Something to Remember

Last week I was in the great state of Texas at WordCamp San Antonio. Since I wasn’t speaking, I was able to fully submerge myself in just being an attendee.

I arrived the day before and that meant I had a few hours to sightsee.

Cincinnati WordCamp 2016

In what became a very WordPress weekend, I attended WordCamp Cincinnati the day after attending WordCamp Rochester. Like Rochester, this too was Cincinnati’s inaugural camp. #WCCincy took place Saturday and Sunday in the modern concrete-metallic-designed Tangeman University Center at the University of Cincinnati.

WordCamp Ann Arbor – “It’s the Little Things”

I had the pleasure of traveling to my home state of Michigan this past weekend to attend, and speak at, WordCamp Ann Arbor.

#WCA2 was one of the most uniquely scheduled WordCamps I’ve been to this year. I wasn’t surprised because I’ve gotten to know Kyle Maurer, Lead Organizer, over the past six months and his passion for the community and doing things creatively is obvious.

One example of this was the music selection that played at the afterparty event. It was comprised of jazz music from all the artists that each version of WordPress was named after. This was just one of “the little things” that the title of this post refers to.

Home Sweet Phoenix – WordCamp Phoenix 2016

It’s Back!

After a yearlong hiatus, WordCamp Phoenix returned this past weekend with a vengeance. Over 400 attendees swarmed the Phoenix Convention Center to brush up on the latest WordPress news, learn new skills and network with fellow WordPressers.

#WCPHX was my third WordCamp and although I may be biased, it was my favorite yet! The event took place in the heart of downtown Phoenix and in true WordCamp form it felt like a home away from home. Our SiteLock team was proud to be a Master Builder sponsor and to take part in such an exciting event in our own backyard. We also debuted our very own SiteLock Wapuu, complete with sunglasses and a saguaro cactus.

WordCamp Raleigh 2016 Recap

I’m writing this while at the Raleigh-Durham International airport and although I’m anxious to get back home, leaving North Carolina feels different than most of my return trips from WordCamps.

I’ve just attended #WCRaleigh where I also presented “Curating Content in WordPress” and it was an excellent event.

Although I’ve never been to Raleigh before, for some reason it felt comfortable. It felt like home. Maybe this was because nature is all around, even in the heart of the city, and that reminded me of my home state of Michigan. Or, perhaps it was the people I met.

WordCamp Dallas / Fort Worth 2016

My last trip this September took me to Arlington, Texas for WordCamp Dallas / Fort Worth. The camp was hosted at the E. H. Hereford University Center of the University of Texas at Arlington and held three tracks: Blogger/Community, Business, and of course, Developer. We were particularly keen to sponsor and attend #WCDFW, in part because our friends Carrie Dils and Marc Gratch were two of the event organizers.

WordCamp Nashville 2016 – Music City Didn’t Disappoint

I recently found myself smack dab in the middle of “Music City” attending and speaking at WordCamp Nashville. I also met a person in the community that I highly respect and that I’ve had many conversations with online but had never met in person. When I finally met him, I was a bit giddy. More on that below.

WordCamp Pittsburgh 2016 Recap

This past weekend I spoke about WordPress security at the first-ever WordCamp Pittsburgh. The night before the event I was invited to a speaker dinner at a local maker space called TechShop, where we were provided a tour of the facilities and equipment, and given freshly-created speaker gifts hot off the laser.
