I’m so excited to blog this but did not find enough time to compose it last week. Well after I got home on Saturday night, I tried to watch PDA but tiredness really struck me so I went to my bed and fell asleep shortly. I woke up around noon the next day. I managed to blog my Octoberfest experience and then took another round of sleep. hehe.
Anyway, going back to my wordcamp experience. Junelle almost laid out the whole story and I could only add a little details but you’ll get the whole picture of my experience too.
At 6am, I kinda feel a little alive. We went to Lisa’s place to get dressed and then they escorted me to the LRT (thanks again to the group). It took me only a few minutes to get to St. Benilde where the Wordcamp event took place. I’m happy to see Junelle already there because I could not tell how much longer I could stand on my own. The event is well organized and great! I love the lauriat from Chowking! I hope next time we can ask Max to donate some chicken .
While in the event, I missed some talks specially the how to create a theme by Gail and Matt’s introduction. I was sooo sleepy I wish I was at home at those moment. I was day dreaming I was in my bed. Hehe. I still manage to listen to some talk though and I was able to ask Matt Mullenweg for a picture. Yey!
As for what I learned in the event. I think I can create plugins from now on! My favorite part though is the SEO plugins list. I am not much into SEO but I am curious so I went to Hans Koch talk about SEO and he gave 11 plugins. It was really helpful because up until now I installed only 2 from those he gave me. Haha. Below are the list of those suggestions. (If it’s unethical, let me know though so I can erase them asap.)
- All-in-one SEO Pack
- WordPress SEO master
- Crawl rate tracker plugin
- Google sitemap generator
- Redirection wordpress plugin
- Similar Post plugin
- Ultimate tag warrior
- KB Robots.txt
- Add this social booksmarks widget
- WP Backlinks
- Internal link building plugin
Those are the only thing I was able to grasp. We left early because Junelle still had a flight to catch. We were not able to catch the Powow section of Matt where anyone can ask questions. Oh well, maybe next time if there is a next time. The moral lesson here, I should not try again to stay up for 36hours!
