What a great year for WordCamp Boston!
There were all kinds of exciting tidbits from WordCamp this weekend, ending in a fun-filled after party. The conference included a wide variety of presentations and panels from WordPress experts and enthusiasts. Each presenter had their own spin on how to utilize the platform for the best business, blog, and brand builder. Our own Anna Remus brilliantly presented on “5 Secrets of Tech Marketing” and proposed that the best way to market is to “be a people,” or be an authentic, helpful human being. Great job, Anna!
We have to give a virtual round of applause to Sam Hotchkiss for saving the day and stepping up for a sick presenter. He’s like a WordCamp superhero, always swooping in to save the day! He gave a great talk on API and what could be done if all WordPress sites have their data available through a JSON API.
Everyone brought their A-game during the presentations, and even if you weren’t able to attend, you can gain some WordPress knowledge, below.
