Over the weekend, Ben and Jackson attended Brisbane’s first WordPress conference (WordCamp) at QUT. The event was a sell-out, and attendees all really had a good time.
This WordCamp was geared more to newcomers to WordPress and wanting to learn more of the basics. This is the first time at a WordCamp where I’ve seen, when asked, over 50% of the audience raise their hand stating it’s their first WordCamp. This is great to see so many new users, designers and WordPress developers entering the space. The more people using WordPress, the safer WordPress’ future is, as a great web framework to build on.
So while there weren’t a lot of advanced or highly technical talks where we would personally benefit or learn from, we still had a good time catching up with peers in the WordPress community, supporting a local WordPress event, and seeing some clients who work in the WordPress space and flew up for the event.
For those who missed out, the videos will no doubt end up on WordCamp.tv — or you could read Chris Burgess’ blog, who worked away live blogging the event.
