This past weekend I attended WordCamp Denver 2013. Since this is my local camp I was able to volunteer at registration. It was nice getting to greet everyone first thing in the morning, and to put faces with names of several people I interact with online. The organizers also invited the volunteers to enjoy lunch in the speakers and sponsors room, so that was a nice bonus! I sat at a table of about 10 people and via our course of talking someone suggested we go around the table and introduce ourselves and how we work with WordPress. It was a great way to get to meet people and sparked some interesting discussions. I definitely want to remember to do that again next time I’m in a group setting.
The presentation that I enjoyed the most was Breaking up with *AMP by Luke Woodward of 10up. It was a great introduction to Vagrant and great examples of how to set it up initially. The Varying Vagrant Vagrants tool seems very impressive, and I love that it is open to the public since it is such a great example of giving back to Open Source. Even though I haven’t put this tool into my daily use, yet, I really enjoyed learning about it. Hopefully all the presentations will make it up to WordPress.tv and you can watch if you are interested.
