The aspect of community-powered support is definitely one of that factors that has lead to the popularity of WordPress, but despite millions of users, only a handful regularly volunteer in the support forums. How can you support WordPress? What kind of questions will you encounter? What if you aren’t an expert? These just a few of the questions that Automattic Happiness Engineer Sheri Bigelow answers in her WordCamp Portland 2010 session, How to Support WordPress. I became a volunteer in the WordPress Support Forums six years ago, one week after installing WordPress. I was what some would call a “n00b,” but while I was waiting for an answer to my question, I noticed a few installation questions that I could answer. Fast-forward six years later, and everything that I know about WordPress today was learned from answering questions on the WordPress Support Forums. If a lack of knowledge is preventing […]

How WordPress Decisions are Made

WordPress is certainly the most popular open source blogging platform, but how are development decisions made? You may have heard that WordPress is a democracy, that Matt Mullenweg makes all the decisions, or that Automattic governs the development of WordPress. Of course, neither of those are true. WordPress is actually a Meritocracy. It’s really quite simple and efficient, but the more you contribute to WordPress, the more weight your opinions carry when it comes time to make decisions. Probably the best example of this is Andrew Nacin. When Nacin began contributing to WordPress, he could only submit his bug fixes and enhancements for review. After showing his commitment to the WordPress community over three months and a hundred patches, Nacin was asked to be a core developer. Now, Nacin’s bug fixes and enhancements go right to the core. I could write pages upon pages describing how everything works, but I’d certainly […]

Automattic’s “Master of Suggestion,” Jane Wells, had a chance to speak at WordCamp Boulder 2010. Her session, What’s Next for WordPress, covers the new features in WordPress 3.0, the future of WordPress, and a few additional topics thanks to questions from audience members. The entire session makes for a very educational weekend view. I’m sure that you’ve read a lot about WordPress 3.0 and the future of WordPress by now, but there’s just something about this particular format that I’ve always found to be more informative. Enjoy!

An Inside Look At Organizing WordCamp New York

WordCamps are great events. It’s where users of WordPress that are local to the area can all get together in one place to share tips, talk strategy, and share knowledge with each other. However, putting these events together takes time and an incredible amount of hard work, as shown by Steve Bruner’s post on the WCNYC blog: When you have 70+ speakers and volunteers working for gratis, you start out $2,500 in the hole. And when attendees started registering like crazy, it really was a double-edged sword. While registration was beginning to reflect the fruits of our labor, and the hype was building, my little budget spreadsheet was blinking red with every registration. I was laying out money for shirts, bags and food, and the sponsors weren’t showing up For those that are willing to go through all of the trouble of putting a WordCamp together, I salute you!

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.

I Wish I Was At WordCamp

If you’re looking for a cool way to keep tabs on what’s shaking at WordCamp New York this weekend, check out this site created by DimensionMedia called IWishIWasAtWordCamp.com. The site contains feeds from a few notable Twitter accounts that will be tweeting during the event as well as the important hashtag Twitter widget which goes above and beyond single accounts. Near the center of the site is a collection of photos published to Flickr but some of the photos are from the wrong WordCamp. This should be fixed by only aggregating photos that are using a unique tag such as the event Twitter hashtag. Near the bottom are even more Twitter accounts. The only bad thing about this page is that asides from the hashtag widget at the top, the rest of the page requires refreshing in order to see new information. Hopefully, Dimension has a decent server to put […]

This weekend will be packed with WordCamp goodness starting with WordCamp Phoenix on Friday the 13th and WordCamp New York on Saturday the 14th as well as Sunday the 15th, both of which still have tickets available. However, if you can not make it to WordCamp Phoenix, the great news is that it will be live video streamed in its entirety thanks to their sponsorship with GoDaddy. Simply point your browsers to their Live Video page and the event will be streamed starting at 9AM Mountain time. Also check out the schedule of events in case you only want to tune in during a certain session. Because of a lack of WiFi and bandwidth at WordCamp New York, there will be no live audio or video streams. *UPDATE* Just found out that WordCamp Victoria in Canada is also this weekend.
