WordCamp San Diego, Recap with Video and Pics

July 27, 2011 | Shannon Dunn | News

What can you say about San Diego – it’s almost perfect. The weather is the same year round, it’s sunny every day and it’s surrounded by water, beaches and palm trees. If that’s not enough reason to make a trip down there, attending and sponsoring the very first WordCamp San Diego is good enough for us. So Dave Cowgill and I packed our bags and headed down.

WordCamp San Diego is bound to become one of the better WordCamps around. Dre Armeda and Chris Daley put on a great show. Throughout the weekend, it was obvious that these two and their staff of volunteers poured a ton of effort and loads of passion into making it fun and memorable.

The excitement started on Friday night with the speakers and sponsors dinner atop the Ramada Gaslamp in downtown San Diego and continued on through Saturday night, wrapped up by an after-party at Downtown Johnny Brown’s. There was good food, good drinks, informative speakers and even an appearance by Matt Mullenweg himself. Luckily Dave took some time to capture it all on video.

Again, a big thanks to all the organizers at WordCamp San Diego. If you have not attended a WordCamp yet, we highly recommend that you go to the next one near you – or hey, start one yourself. Next up: WordCamp San Francisco. If you plan on being there, drop us a line in the comments. We want to see how many AppThemes customers we can meet at WCSF. See you there.

    What else could one ask for?

  7. I love Sand Diego too. Live in Arizona and in the summer it is one of my favorite get away places. Looks like a great conference, hoping to make it to the next one, wish it was in San Diego too.

      Scott, we will be in San Diego for WordCamp in 2012. If you can start making plans soon, hopefully we can get a chance to meet you there next year.
