Word Camp Toronto 2010

I had a really good time at Word Camp Toronto 2010. Special thanks to Mathieu Yuill and Melissa Feeney for all their hard work putting together this event. There were countless volunteers involved as well too many to mention and I didn’t get a chance to meet everyone. My deepest thanks goes to anyone involved with making the event a success.

The Keynote speaker: Jeremy Wright was by far the best in my opinion with Mark Evans being a close second. Overall the event was a great opportunity to meet the Toronto tech and blogging community. I was amazed, some of the best and brightest people online are right in my own backyard. I also enjoyed meeting Mary Warner, Ben Lucier, Venkatesh Rao, Zahra Langford, Ruth Maude, Edward Caissie, Sam Hossian and many other cool Toronto people. Sorry if I missed you here, too many to mention 🙂

I’m always on the lookout for more events like this so if you know of one I should be attending please contact me.

If you didn’t get a chance to see my presentation, I have uploaded the slides along with the actual audio track with questions from my presentation. Simply enter your name and e-mail address below to download instantly.

  • Sorry to have missed this event, invite them out to our monthly meetings :)

  • Uh .... Wow. That checklist alone is amazing and I have not gotten to the video yet! It could definitely be a $47 WSO or more. Unless you object, I sure would love to use this in my business consulting biz to help others.

  • I also attended Word Camp this year and it was an excellent networking experience. Its rare to be surrounded by so many people who understand web technology and more important, the power of Wordpress. I saw a number of good presentations on the weekend.

    In my opinion, yours was the best Brad. Even though we work on a number of projects together, I was still able to get some ideas out of you that I have not heard before. Awesome content and you were a natural on stage. Keep up the great work.

    Hi Brad,

    Thanks for sharing this with the Warriors!

  • I know I have told you this via instant messaging - but love that picture! It looks like a TED talk. Too bad I missed te event, but good to know there was a solid turn out - I am sure it will only grow in the future.

    I agree with you Brad, Word Camp Toronto 2010 was a fantastic event. I do have to disagree with you on Jeremy Wright being the best speaker there, for me I would have to say that your presentation was by far the best. Then Jeremy Wright and Mark Evens, for they too were great presenters. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge and expertise with the rest of us.

  • Thank you so much Kelly I am so glad you got value from my talk. Keep me posted on your progress! :)
