I went to my first WordCamp this weekend in Denver. What’s a WordCamp?
WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.
It was a great to see coworkers from far away places and talk to real live users and developers of WordPress and especially WooCommerce. I also sat in on quite a few talks and sketched some notes on my iPad.
Sonja Leix and Meg Delagrange critiqued websites that were submitted by a few brave conference-goers.
Caleb Burks of WooCommerce and Pippin Williamson of Easy Digital Downloads answered any and all questions the audience had about eCommerce and selling things online.
Robert Jolly gave a great talk about accessibility and testing for WordPress development.
Marketing and Growth Townhall
Tracy Malone and Amber Hinds answered everyone’s marketing questions.
Forms that Don’t Suck
Steve Wells and Jessica Wittmier told us how to engage users with forms that aren’t terrible.
And Vi Wickam, Miles Kailburn, D’nelle Dowis, and Gordon Seirup ended the first day with a great Q&A about all things business.
