WordCamp NYC came to town this past weekend on Halloween! There was candy, costumes, cupcakes, and of course – awesome speakers! It was a great way to gather a new list of influential people to follow on Twitter and a new reason to hoard all the free swag. If there’s anything I learned from last year’s WCNYC, it’s that WordCamp is only getting better. I’ve learned a lot and a lot has changed since the last time I attended a WordCamp. I’d like to share that experience along with a late Halloween treat for those who may have missed the event.
Obvious, not so obvious hint – speaker slides list! Grab your leftover candy and let’s get to it.
A month has passed since my first time attending WordCamp NYC 2014 in good ‘ole Brooklyn. It was a new experience, admission was cheap, and I still don’t know what to do with all the stickers and buttons I admittedly hoarded from the booths. ( I have this thing where if it’s free, well hell, I think I’ll help myself, thank you. ) In all seriousness, the entire conference was awesome and totally worth it. Only from attending on Saturday, I’ve decided to become a WC NYC attendee forever!
Being a WordCamp noob, there were a few things that surprised me, terrified me, and all in all, a lot that I learned from the adventure that I hope to share with people thinking of trying it out as well – or people just wanting another perspective on it.
