This year’s WordCamp US is near my home in TN, so I can’t pass up the opportunity to meet the amazing Elegant Theme’s crew in person. I’ve written quite a few articles for the Elegant Theme’s blog, so meeting Kenny Sing, Mitch Skolnik, B.J. Keeton, Jason Champagne, Nathan B Weller, and Nick Roach at the Coffee and Pastry Meet and Greet is kind of a big deal for me. I’m also looking forward to meeting many of the Divi developers like Tim Strifler, Tammy Grant, Leslie Barnal, David Blackmon, Josh Hall, Terry Hale, Adam Inlay, Daniel Dye, Nathan Duvall, SJ James, Shannon Shaffer, Cory Jenkins, and many others (I apologize if I’ve left your name off the list. There are many others I’d like to name). I highly recommend you check out the meet and greet event they’re planning. They had me at “coffee” (although I’d go anyway… but still… coffee). There will be photos.
There’s also some guy by the name of Matt Mullenweg, who’s going to say something about WordPress. I’ve heard he’s kind of a big deal, so we’ll see. There will be a lot of talk about Gutenberg, design, development, and even a few things about running a business with WordPress. I’m hoping to see a few things about blogging, such as blog management, writing, etc. (but that’s the writer in me).
I’m currently planning to go Friday and Saturday (although Saturday isn’t guaranteed). I plan to meet as many sponsors and website owners as I can. I haven’t fully decided on the sessions that I’ll attend (I’m actually more excited about meeting the Divi crew than attending the sessions, not that the sessions aren’t exciting). Most likely I’ll have a hard time making a decision of what the see and I’ll just roam the halls (I plan to a little bit at least). I’ll take a few photos too.
After WordCamp US is over, I plan to post my thoughts about the event and the State of the Word. Oh, and photos. I’ll post lots of photos.
What about you? Are your going to WordCamp US 2017 in Nashville? I hope see you there!
