Dear WordPress Rockstar,
As I write these words, our group page reads "700 WordPress Rockstars". Another milestone!
Of course, numbers are meaningless without connection and personal relationships that grow out of the group. Many of you do business together, consult, and create cooperative ventures.
One cooperative venture headed up by John Pozadzides is the OpenCamp
blogging conference scheduled for August 27-29 in Addison. Incorporating WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla sessions, OpenCamp promises to be the southwest's biggest blogging conference. Considering that John's 2008 and 2009 WordCamp conferences sold out fast, I've already reserved a seat. Reserve yours today at Openca.mp
Another excellent cooperative venture is the WordPress developers SIG (WordPress Developer and Technical User Group). They now have their own rockin' web site at DFWWPtech.org
. They will hold their next monthly meeting on Thursday May 13 at 6:30 PM at Richland Community College. Randy Hoyt, a local university instructor and web developer, will be discussing techniques for working with images in WordPress.
This month, our meetup will feature a focus on web design.
