Wow! What an incredible event! I must say, this is WordCamp was done well and had wonderful attendees/speakers/sponsors/organizers/volunteers that pulled everything together beautifully.
Recently we attended the Snap! Conference (May 11th - 15th), led by the Wonderful team of Mandy and Kim. This event was held at the Little America hotel in the beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah! As the other attendees know, this was the place to be for crafters and bloggers that week. Jonathan and Danielle attended SnapConf, and they had an absolute blast!
This past weekend, two of our team members (Danielle and Eyvonne) attended Joomla! Day Italy in Turino, Italy. This event was held in a beautiful location, and was full of eager attendees waiting to learn, enthusiastic sponsors, and organizers who made the event possible. It was an excellent turn-out, and had many sessions.
It’s that glorious time of year again in Michigan… the air is getting chilly, the leaves are starting to change and our sandals are placed back on the shelves for hibernation. Thankfully the fall season also brings WordCamp Ann Arbor to the region, an event that we have looked forward to all summer long.
This past weekend two of our team members, Danielle and Jonathan attended WordCamp Minneapolis. The event was well organized, there were many other sponsors, and loads of attendees eager to learn! They were instantly welcomed to the conference as they arrived at the speaker/sponsor networking event. As part of networking, they played a game of giant WordCamp Jenga which was riveting, to say the least!
The first day of the conference was in full swing bright and early with lines out the door. Our team setup the booth as quickly as possible before the 300+ event attendees began rolling through.
We had the privilege of attending a fantastic WordCamp last weekend in Kent Ohio. The event started on Saturday so we arrived Friday evening to get our interactive VR booth setup at the venue. We were immediately impressed by the convenience of having the event venue at the same location as the recommended hotel. This is always preferred.
As the Saturday sessions got into full swing, we found that there are many enthusiastic WordPress users in the area. Many of the conferences that we attend consist mostly of developers, but in this case it seemed there were quite a few new WordPress users who are actively trying to grow their knowledge. This tends to be a is a sign of a thriving WordPress community in Kent, Ohio.
This was our second year sponsoring and attending Joomla Day Florida and yet again, it was a fantastic event!
There were thought-provoking keynotes by Mike Demo, John Rampton and Robert Jacobi. We managed to catch some great sessions, and the tempo was kept in time by the notorious Robert Parker who MC’d the event. The conference venue was Ybor City, a historic area of Tampa with Cuban roots and amazing nightlife. The event was held on a local campus, which was ultimately the perfect sized venue.
