WordCamp is really awesome so far! lots of great talks this morning on making your site fast. while I already knew many of the strategies being discussed, I’m learning about a whole plethora of new tools to help out.
Ilya Grigorik’s talk (measure all the things) was particularly good for this. Once I get in front of a non tablet I will include some more information and links. But Matt’s speech is starting now!
So it’s now Sunday, and I have to say that this WordCamp was very very cool. I was a little nervous because of the shorter time span and quicker talks, but I think the new format worked very well. While a couple of the speakers weren’t able to cover everything in 15 minutes, most of the topics translated well to a quick, rapid fire speech. It kept people on topic and cut out a lot of the clutter that was in last years talks.
The after party was a lot of fun, with food trucks serving free food and an open bar. I had delicious korean tacos from Kung Fu Tacos and mind blowing puff pastries from a truck I can’t remember, although I’m certainly going to look it up.
I’m going to share more about the convention over the next week but I need to relax and gather my thoughts. Thanks for reading!
