After an absence of 1 year I will be attending this years WordCampUK unconference in Edinburgh. Having attended both the 2009 (Cardiff) and the 2010 (Manchester) events I missed out on last years event (Portsmouth) mainly due to the distance away. I am looking forward to this years WordCampUK for a number of reasons.
Firstly it we give me a chance to meet up with all the other Compass Design associates. After a meeting last week with Compass Design owner Rachel McCollin I am delighted to announce that I am now a Compass Design associate. As there are several other associates working on the Compass Design team I will be able to meet up with them all and get to know the team.
Secondly, there seems to be some excellent talks this year from a wide variety of speakers. I am particularly interested in the talks on:
- Customizing WordPress admin like a boss – Noel Tock
- A tour ’round the core – Steve Taylor
- Secure from the start – Kieran O’Shea
- Get Better at Business – David Coveney
Those are just some of the main sessions that interest me, but there is a wide variety that will suit all types of users from WordPress newcomers to WordPress experts. Take a look at the current speakers running order here.
Finally because it is a great chance to meet people that have the same passion and enthusiasm for WordPress, the web and gadgets in the way I do.
I am thoroughly looking forward to attending in July.
