On August 27, 2010, we are attending an historic event in Addison, TX. It’s called OpenCamp, and if you are a webmaster, web developer, blogger, podcaster, social media enthusiast or someone who is interested in web content creation you should be there too.
OpenCamp is the first multi-platform web conference to be held in the Southwest, and some of the most notable people on the web are speaking there.
Just a few on the list:
- Brian Clark of CopyBlogger fame
- Doug Vann who travels all over sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for Drupal
- Chris Pirillo founder of the blogging platform Lockergnome, is a Tech Expert on CNN, and is on the Board of Directors for UstreamTV
- Trey Ratcliff whose travel photography blog “stuckincustoms.com” is the #1 blog of it’s kind on the net, getting approximately 350,000 visits per month
Unlike other conferences that focus on only one platform, there will be sessions on WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Blogger and many other tools for web development. In addition to the various content platform sessions there will be general sessions regarding best web practices. There will also be parties, networking, information sharing and the opportunity to make lots of new friends who share your passion for the endless possibilities provided by the Internet.
If you are not familiar with Addison, TX, you should know that it is a beautiful suburb of Dallas and attendees of OpenCamp are encouraged to book a room at the newly renovated Crowne Plaza Hotel in Addison, where there will be parties as well as the learning sessions. Rooms are very affordable if you book while the OpenCamp block is still available. They are also quite nice. You can take a video tour of the hotel here (scroll about halfway down the page): http://openca.mp/blog/get-a-tour-inside-the-opencamp-venue-video/
