This past Saturday, I attended WordCamp DFW as a co-organizer. It was interesting to be a small part of the organizing team and to get an idea of how a WordCamp gets put together.
Since I had just been in Canada for 9 days, I took Hero along with me so we could hang out. He had quite a bit of fun at KidsCamp, which Brad Griffin led.
Some personal highlights were:
- WP Engine brought breakfast burritos ❤️
- The after party was a bit more kid friendly since it was at a bowling alley 🎉
- Hero was introduced to the WordPress community and had an amazing time with other kids
Hero was rooting for the Bears from the time we left the house. He switched sides real quick when the Cowboys Cheerleaders came on TV. 😂
Every year, at the Grand Meetup, each Automattician is required to give a presentation that is a maximum of 4 minutes long and the topic can be over anything.
This year, I decided to give a short presentation over our family trip to Niagara Falls. But, since I only had 4 minutes, I was only able to cover Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds.
This year I pre-recorded my talk to avoid issues with embedded videos. I made one mistake in the video where I mentioned Ontario Falls instead of Bridal Veil Falls.
All in all, it wasn’t too bad.
