Keep an eye out for our very own evangelist, Adam W. Warner. He’ll be the one wearing the “Secure Your Word” t-shirt!

Reaching New Levels at Prestige Conference

By Logan Kipp

Prestige Conference was held immediately following WordCamp Minneapolis, and just a few blocks away at the University of St. Thomas, allowing many WordPressers, such as myself, to pull a double feature in the friendly city of Minneapolis. If you’re not familiar with Prestige, it’s a premium business and career development conference. While not exclusively a WordPress event, the speakers and attendees were predominantly from the WordPress space, offering their familiar flavor of comradery and open-source collaboration.

Intention Created at WordCamp Minneapolis

By Logan Kipp

This past weekend I attended WordCamp Minneapolis at University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs in downtown Minneapolis. WCMPLS was one of the larger camps I’ve attended this year, and provided some of the best talks and landscape.

Foundation Friday
WCMPLS participated in the growing trend of hosting a Foundation Friday. “Unlike the normal conference tracks, these are full-day hands-on learning sessions. If you’re new to WordPress, you can get up to speed before WordCamp. If you’re a graphic designer or programmer who wants to work with WordPress, you can acquire a solid foundation to get started.”

Thank you, WordCamp St. Louis

By Logan Kipp

This year’s WordCamp St. Louis took place on the campus of Washington University. There, inside the Lab Sciences Building Castle at Washington University, the latest scientific developments from the WordPress community were discussed.

Sessions
The talks at #WCSTL were facilitated through use of three classrooms and a large auditorium. I was fortunate to attend several of my favorite speakers’ talks. Among them were these gems:

Portland Maine, a Wicked Good WordCamp

By Adam Warner

We had the pleasure of attending WordCamp Maine this past weekend. It was held at the Maine College of Art; not only a beautiful venue, but one that inspired the same creativity and community that WordCamps are known for.

Contributor Day

Friday was contributor day. This was a chance for people new and experienced with WordPress to learn the many ways in which to contribute to the WordPress project.

WordCamp San Diego Round-up

By Logan Kipp

The first round of @WordCampSD tickets sold out within hours of being announced and stunned us all. The second and final round sold out March 1, a mere week after opening sales. Unfortunately, it was also twenty-four days before I officially stepped into my new role as Product Evangelist at SiteLock. It was looking like I missed the boat. In this case, the boat would of course be the USS Midway; the majestic World War II era aircraft carrier-turned-museum permanently moored across the San Diego Bay from San Diego International Airport … and WordCamp San Diego.
