So I went to another WordCamp in mid-November, this time in Denver. This was my fourth WordCamp of 2013, but it was the first one where I was a speaker.
(Well, that’s not exactly true. I gave a similar presentation at a WordUp session in Minneapolis in October, but that wasn’t an official WordCamp.)
I totally enjoy WordCamps as they are an awesome way to learn new things and meet new people that enjoy and understand a lot of the same things as myself. Personally, my favorite talks are the ones way over my head so I get out of my sphere of knowledge a bit.
My presentation was called “Learning WordPress Sucks” but it was basically a Randy Pausch head fake. (What! You don’t know Randy Pausch! Fix that. Now.) Meaning that while I’m sure the audience got good information from it, I’ll confess to it being just as much for me as them.
Take a look at the slides to see what it was all about. And leave a comment and let me know what level of learning you are at. I’m still working on getting from the “Know Enough to Be Afraid” to the “Know Enough to be Confident” level.
