Over the weekend of July 23 & 24, Shea and Matt attended WordCamp Boston 2011. This unique conference was held at George Sherman Union at Boston University. So, what is WordCamp?

“WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.” – WordCamp Central

3thought’s own website is build on the WordPress platform, and we have been building WordPress sites for others for over 2 years. We have found this user-friendly platform is a wonderful CMS for so many, especially small business websites. We wanted to attend so that we hone our skills and connect to other resources that could help our clients. But the event was so much more.

The schedule offered not only tips on the latest WordPress development tools, but also information on business, marketing, and strategies for a variety of goals.
The WordPress Community is welcoming and helpful, and extends from novice bloggers to hard-core developers. We met so many interesting people and look forward to developing those relationships in the future.

In addition to attending the event, 3thought was also invited to provide design services in the form of event signage (see above) and a unique event badge that also served as event schedule and venue map (image coming soon). It was a very fun project, and the 3thought team was happy to contribute to such a wonderful event.

The presentations are also available on WordPress.tv

Thank you to all the organizers, speakers and participants!
