Notes From WordCamp San Francisco

The Internet has made the world flatter but that doesn’t mean it’s made it any easier to miss out on events that you’d like to attend, right?

Last weekend, WordCamp San Francisco Рarguably the WordCamp to attend Рwas happening and those who are involved in WordPress in some capacity were tweeting all about the awesome things happening.

Jealousy!

In all seriousness, it was evident from the various tweets and blog posts that it was a killer time for everyone, but here’s something cool for those of us who weren’t able to attend: 23 pages of notes taken from the various sessions held throughout the weekend.

Notes From WordCamp San Francisco

Shortly before the conference started, Brian Krogsgard started up a Google Doc for anyone to contribute while they were hanging out and attending sessions.

Awesome, right?

The document includes topics on:

  • Making Your Site Faster
  • Automating Performance
  • Foundations of Fast Plugins
  • The State of the Word from Matt
  • Custom Post Types
  • Avoiding Mistakes with jQuery
  • …and much more

Obviously, there’s something for everyone regardless of your skill level in the document.

Perhaps this isn’t a bad idea to adopt for WordCamps everywhere, huh?

Opening up a Doc for an entire conference to edit and contribute would probably only ever work in a WordCamp. I don’t think I would even do that for my church. The WP community is something that amazes me every time.

Thanks Tom!

We had amazing contributions on that doc. There were consistently 50+ people in there during the day, and there were at least a half dozen people contributing to the notes. They are each noted in the bottom of the doc.

It was really fun to do, and I’m glad I now have something to go back on when I inevitably am looking for something I heard in SF.

Cheers!
