See You At WordPress Camp

I’m looking forward to seeing some readers at tonight’s WordPress Camp at the Network Hub. If you are going, I recommend you get there early because the place will be packed. Nearly 90 people has RSVPed for the camp and I’m pretty sure the Network Hub can’t hold that many. A lot of people are going to have to stand or sit on the floor.

The event starts at 5:30 and runs until 8:30. There will be a networking reception afterwards at Steamworks in Gastown. The first round of beer is being paid for by Automattic, the creators of WordPress. Here’s the full schedule for tonight’s event.

5:30 to 5:50pm – Jeff Kee
WordPress for total website development

5:50 to 6:10pm- Monica Hamburg
Blogging & Social Media

6:10 to 6:30pm – Rebecca Bollwitt
Adding photos [flickr, permission, links, gallery plugins, badges] to your WordPress

6:30 to 6:50pm – Duane Storey
WordPress and mobile blogging – i.e. how to read and write from an iPhone.

6:50 to 7:10pm – Networking Break

7:10 to 7:30pm – Kulpreet Singh
Using WordPress to create a custom library, catalog, or other mashup-type site

7:30 to 7:50pm – Bruce Byfield
The joys of Amateur Blogging

7:50 to 8:10pm – Greg Andrews
Good Typography in WordPress

8:10 to 8:30pm – John Chow
How to make money using a WordPress Blog

8:30 to Whenever – BEER AT STEAMWORKS!!!

A few bloggers will be live blogging the event and I’m pretty sure others will be setting up a live webcam feed on Ustream.TV or Justin.TV. Follow me on Twitter to get the channels for the feed. See you tonight!

  11. Ok, I have to say it. Though I’m sure this event is beneficial, I don’t think you can classify something as a “camp” if it lasts 3 hours.

    1. Terry Tay says:

      Well, it depends on how many beers they have afterwards…some may have to “camp out” if they have a few too many 😆

    Remarkable blog about earning !! 😯

  13. The Jeff Kee session and Kulpreet Singh on creating a mashup-type site looks good. Even yours looks good John, maybe you’ll divulge some evil secrets?

    another mistake on the URL.

    its not Upstream.TV
    IT IS CALLED Ustream.TV

  17. MR. NICE GUY says:

    This is a sure opportunity to meet super affiliates and also meet the controversial blogger. Highly recommended wordpress camp.

  18. Nice talk John – really enjoyed it.

  19. Nice to meet you and your wife. I got some insights out of the workshop. I guess I should migrate from and update more.
    Would one be able to migrate previous posts from blogger to wordpress easily?

  20. Here’s the first 4 minutes of John’s presentation before the batteries died on my Flip Video.

  21. Here’s the same video with a shorter URL (using link):

    It does sound life fun. Most of the things, like adding video and flickr , can be found easily from the comfort of your own home. I would like to hear the make money from your blog speech though.
