In Case You Missed It

April 7th, 2008
Blogging News, WordPress

This might be the last WordCamp Dallas 2008 post you see on this blog and since that is the case, better to go out with a bang! In case you were one of the unlucky ones who didn’t have a chance to attend the conference live, the good news is that there were plenty of attendees blogging, vlogging, and live blogging the event. I present to you a list of links which will correspond to the conference schedule.

Matt Mullenweg discussing WordPress 2.5 and beyond. Actually, he announced the redesign of along with the release of 2.5.

John Pozadzides presented his 45 ways to power up your blog.

After Lunch, Jonathan Bailey gave us the lowdown on content theft and protection along with a number of other things that bloggers of any platform would be interested in. Jonathan has also published the slides for his presentation on his own blog which can be viewed here.

Cali Lewis and Neal Campbell shared their experience with using WordPress for powering their websites.

Liz Strauss gave a presentation that was titled, C’mon, Let’s Talk! which dealt with building influence and interaction with blogging. You can check out her full presentation here.

Lorelle VanFossen stepped up to the plate and shared her WordPress Power Tips. Her presentation can be viewed here.

The next day of the event featured a live recording of the WordPress Podcast. The full video of this presentation is now online at

The next panel was by Chris Smith who went over SEO for Bloggers. The link to the Natural Search Blog contains a link to the presentation that Chris Smith gave the attendees.

Aaron Brazell offered up an extensive presentation called WordPress FAQ. The FAQ answers questions such as can you have too many tags, what is the GPL, and the explanation of hooks. The end of the presentation takes questions from the attendees.

A panel that I particularly found interesting was the Business of blogging session featuring Liz Strauss, Mark Ghosh, Matt Mullenweg and Aaron Brazell. A ton of interesting points and conversations took place during the session and I thought it was one of the highlights of the event. Check out the ustream video that Mark Rizzn of recorded here.

Last but not least, Jacob Santos closed out the event with his presentation on Testing With WordPress. I have yet to see any videos posted of his session but he goes over it in more detail here.

For those that have yet to see what this thing called Woopra is all about, Cali Lewis of GeekBrief.TV interviews John Pozadzides and gives you the low down.

    Who’s that good looking guy next to Jeffro and Mark?

  3. Jacob Santos (1 comments.) says:

    I’m still waiting on my the video to see how well or poorly I did. I also want to write a better review since I have no idea what I said besides my notes. Oh yeah, I need to release my notes at some point.
