Done Victoria WordCamp 2011

I’ve attended this event once before, a year and a half ago. It was a good time then, and I expected the same today. I was not disappointed.

There were well over 100 people in attendance, going in different directions to three separate tracks. There was also a Genius Bar to get WordPress assistance, and a comfortable lounge area for general chat. All-day coffee was included in the cost of admission, along with a catered lunch.

Quite a few topics were covered, but some particularly valuable ones for me were custom types, taxonomies, useful plugins, and theming tips and advice. I’ve learned some things I can do to improve this site, and any others I work on.

You can page through the #yyjwordcamp hashtag on Twitter; there are a variety of tips and observations, and links to presentations.

I enjoyed the variety of presentations, and chatting with other people who have similar interests in building sites with WordPress. I look forward to the next WordCamp in Victoria.

I’ve included a number of photos for your viewing pleasure.
