2015 WordCamp Atlanta

2015’s sold out Wordcamp Atlanta, held at Georgia State’s Loudermilk Center, was once again one of my favorite technology events of the year. Even though I was only able to attend one day on Saturday (Friday was for WordPress beginners) I still received the usual burst of inspiration I always get when I’m exposed to the amazing range of diversity of both people and use cases that makeup the Atlanta WordPress community. I always meet interesting members of the community who are doing things I never imagined using WordPress. I’m amazed by all of the entrepreneurs, bloggers, software developers, and marketers at all levels of experience from WordPress beginner to veterans…there was something for everyone.

After a welcome by @judiknight and a very interesting keynote from Nathalie Lussier (@nathlussier) I mostly attended the developers track sessions with a few others mixed in. Here are the sessions I attended, all of which were outstanding (but my favorite was on Backbone):

Friendlier, Safer WordPress Admin Areas by Cliff Seal

The WordPress IDE: PHPStorm by Micah Wood

Put a Little Backbone in Your WordPress by Adam Silverstein

Understanding Google Analytics by Ken Granger

Rev Up Your Design Cycle by Melanie Adcock

Power of Design by Scott Fisk

Wrapping up I have to say this was one of the best organized and ran conferences I’ve ever attended. From registration, check-in, meals and snacks, wifi access, session timing, and parking validation just to name a few areas that all went perfectly in my experience.

Well done @judiknight and everyone else who contributed and to the Sponsors who provided much of the funding and tons of awesome swag.
