Here we are again. Back at WordCamp Chicago and having an excellent time.
Yesterday I gave a talk on shortcodes in WordPress in the 201 track for Foundation Friday. It was really exciting and I had a blast. Lots of positive feedback afterwards which I really appreciated. I was also grateful to be so early in the schedule so I could complete my talk, get my awesome speaker gift and enjoy the rest of WordCamp.
Yesterday I was able to spend most of my time in the “unconferenced” 401 track where I chatted with other speakers, developers and general WP masters. I took a way lots of learning, inspiration and also positive feedback. Especially helpful was the encouragement I received from Steve Zehngut about a plugin we’ve been working on for a while now.
We’ve been meeting lots of great people and reuniting with friends while learning more about WordPress, the web and this awesome community. Looking forward to the rest of the sessions and the after party tonight.
