Over the past few weeks I’ve been exceptionally lucky to have attended two of the most unique WordPress events of this year: the WordPress Community Summit and Pressnomics. I’ve already attended four WordCamps (!!!) in Utrecht, Edinburgh, New York, and Lisbon, each of which had its own character and cultural flavour. I tend to go to WordCamps with a few things in mind – hang out with my WordPress friends, meet current clients, pick up new clients, share knowledge, get do a bit of partying. I’m usually successful at all of these things.
WordCamps are usually focused on doing things with WordPress, whether that’s as a user or as a developer. However, in Georgia and Arizona over the past few weeks, I’ve been involved in two quite different faces of WordPress: Community and Commercialisation.
