WordCamp Toronto Raising the Bar This Weekend

WordPress EventsOf all the WordCamp events to track, WordCamp Toronto this weekend, May 8-10, 2009, has been one of the most product and prolific. The Schedule is three very packed days of events, speakers, and…everything.

Starting at 8AM on Friday and closing Sunday afternoon with an awards ceremony, it’s going to be a packed weekend event – and I’ll be there to share in all the fun and adventure!

One of the exciting parts of the conference is the FlashPress event. FlashPress is a WordPress Plugin which integrates a WordPress PHP based CMS and Flash site. One Method and BackSpaceStudios teamed up for this open source project which will feature the rebuilding of the One Method site from the ground up with the FlashPress bundle. They will be documenting the process, code, and challenges along the way as participants lend a hand in the process.

There is plenty of social during this three day event, including the Opening Night Party at Lou Dogs on Friday, a popular southern barbecue and blues locale.

The Speakers list is amazing, featuring some of the best of the best in WordPress and blogging from around Canada and the world. Speakers include:

Oh, and me, .

WordCamp TorontoMembers of the local b5media team will also be speaking and in attendance, one of the popular blog networks built on WordPress.

The event will feature three tracks each day, with the third “track” being mostly social interaction and barcamp style unconference meetups. Everything from the technical aspects to the creative design elements, to writing styles and social media will be covered – with a lot of partying and coding in between.

I believe there are a few tickets left so hurry for this exciting WordPress adventure in Toronto, Canada.

Throughout the past few months, there have been t-shirt giveways and ticket contests and all kind of events and activity around the WordCamp event. I believe this is the second WordCamp in Toronto and they are truly setting a standard for WordCamps around the world. Raising the bar, they are!

    Really looking forward to attending this – and to hearing you speak as well. 🙂 After a few years of trying, I finally convinced my employers to migrate our basic html site to a site built using WordPress. They are very pleased with the results, and I am excited to get some “insider” tips this weekend.
