Here in Northern Ohio, it’s been one of those chilly Winters. I wish I could attend the upcoming WordCamp in Miami, Florida on February 20th from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM (ET). The event will be taking place on the University of Miami Campus so there is bound to be great internet coverage. The speakers list is still being arranged but so far, Scott Kingsley Clark is a confirmed speaker who will discuss the PODS plugin. Other notable members of the community that will be in attendance are Matt Mullenweg, Mark Jaquith, Jane Wells and a host of other WordPress regulars. Registration for the event is currently open with tickets costing $30.00 each. Updated information can be found on the official WordCamp Miami website.

On Monday, I received an email from the folks putting together WordCamp New York City. This event is shaping up to be the next best thing when compared to WordCamp San Francisco. Due to the large demand for this event and the international, national, local people that will be showing up, WordCamp NYC needed to obtain a bigger venue. Thankfully, they pulled through and the event will be taking place at Baruch College of the City University of New York. Blogs@Baruch, a program overseen by the College’s Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute is the largest WordPress project at CUNY. It is built on WordPress MU and enables members of the Baruch academic community to create individual, group or course blogs in just a few clicks. Baruch College is an advocate of WordPress and other open-source technology, making it a perfect fit for WordCampNYC. The end of the email confirms that […]

Thankfully, WordCamp Columbus is being held in Ohio rather than any of the other states that have a city named Columbus. In all honesty, I didn’t know this event was going to be in Ohio until I checked out their advertising graphics. If you are going to host a WordCamp event, please be sure to include city and state on the About page so that people know exactly where the event will take place. Or you’ll end up clueless like me. With that said, I’m happy to see that a date has been nailed down for WordCamp Columbus, that being May 16th, 2009. I hope the event lasts during the entire weekend and not just on a Friday. The event looks to be taking place at Columbus State Community College. Unfortunately, due to WordCamp Mid-Atlantic occurring during the same weekend, Matt will only be doing a keynote session at the […]

Those of you who have been wanting a Technology conference to visit the South Eastern United States are now in luck. The event is called South By Deep South and is a take on the familiar South by South West conference. The event will be held in Birmingham, Alabama on September 26th-28th. The final details of the event are still being worked out but Ike Pigott has already let us know some of what we can expect from this event: Social Media/PR/Marketing Web development A full-blown WordCamp In case you missed it, that last one says WordCamp. Personally, I thought Atlanta, Georgia would of been the first city in the South Eastern United States to get a WordCamp event, but it looks like I was wrong. Ike also notes that there will be a SideWalk Festival that will be taking place during the same weekend. I’m really glad to see […]

WordCamps are awesome events that take up an extraordinary amount of time and effort to put together. I was lucky enough to be able to attend the recent WordCamp Dallas and I must admit, Charles Stricklin along with John Pozadzides did one heck of a job putting on a great conference. I thought it went over rather well and I have yet to hear anyone complain about any aspect of the event. As promised, Charles has published the first in a series of articles which will cover in detail what it took in order to turn WordCamp Dallas from an idea, into a reality. The first article contains information related to the very beginnings of a WordCamp event. This is the brainstorming session. The first three steps you should consider before going any further include: Gauge interest. Determine the overall structure of your WordCamp. Pick a weekend, and maybe even […]

Tony Scott has published an entry on his blog entitled WordCamp UK proposal. Inspired by WordCamp Dallas, Tony is looking at quite possibly holding the first ever WordCamp within the UK. His blog post will serve as a gauge of interest. So far, the topics of discussion regarding this event center around: Format: A little more structured, such as WordCamp Dallas 2008, or more BarCamp, as WordCamp Hamburg? Size: Number of attendees? Location: London or other city? Take into account travelling and accommodation. Sponsorship: Would be good to subsidize the event! If you would like to participate in or help organize the event, be sure to stop by Tony’s blog and leave a comment.
