Back now. On to more Wordcamp recap!
After Jen’s lightning talk, Tollie Wiliams addressed using Gravity Forms. He makes it do stuff that it wasn’t necessarily intended to. In spite of some technical problems with the laptop to projector connection cutting out and leaving the screen blank, he did a good job.
Next was the panel discussion with Wade Kwon as moderator, Karla Porter, Rebecca Morrow, and Lisa Isbell as panel participants. A good bit of my notes from this panel ended up on twitter. There was lots of good information that was shared. Between this panel and the next one I got lots of good things to do to help my biz web site out.
Brandon Eley’s presentation, “Tips for bloggers from online marketers” had lots of really good things to look at and see and check and alter. My biz web site is very elementary, and needs to be re-worked. I have to get it updated and keep it better updated, as well as track the things that matter. Its time to do it!
Brandon’s was the last presentation of the day. Dinner and then after party at Aloft Hotel in Homewood. A good number of folks came out and chatted and played.
Today’s Wordcamp festivities took place at Railroad Park, even though their wifi access was down. I was able to get there after 12:30, so I missed the folks who were there early but had to get out and get home. The camaraderie was very evident, and in spite of the heat it was a very pleasant place to be spending the afternoon. It was around 3:30 when the last of us there broke up and headed home.
All in all, it was a good camp. Many thanks to Andre, Henry, Wade, and all the other volunteers who worked very hard on Wordcamp Birmingham!
