Thank you to all of our wonderful speakers. Especially to those who traveled into town. We know that traveling is not cheap, and we are extremely grateful that you included our camp in your travel budget for 2012.
The WordPress Foundation
Thank you to Andrea for keeping the rudder pointed in the right direction as we came down the home stretch and for all of the admin duties she does behind the scenes with venue contracts, budgets and logistics of camera and swag shipments.
Eric Blackwell and Jon Karlen for their assistance in putting the camp together. Eric kindly donated the use of his projector so we could save the money on renting one. Jon manned the video camera helping us capture all of the talks for others to view who couldn’t make the camp. Bill Rice for stepping up and helping with whatever was asked of him, despite my complete lack of delegation skills. Bill is directly responsible for both speaking, as well as bringing Johnathan Davis into town. Liz Hack, my wife — who helped with registration, signage, promotion, and most importantly… keeping me sane.
The camp wouldn’t exist without the attendees. Buying your ticket and committing your Saturday to learn and network with like minded individuals from the community is the reason our camp exists. Thank you for putting your faith ( and money ) with us.
At the end of WordCamp Louisville, I encouraged attendees to get involved. To participate and to help grow the WordPress community in Louisville. Richard Meadows heard that cry and went right to work. As of Monday October 15th, 2012 — The WordPress Louisville Meetup group now has a home. We’ve been invited to use the new iHub building downtown to host our meetings. This building meets several of our needs… Including : Wifi, Easy parking, Centrally located, and of course it had to meet our budget. Our first meetup is planned for November 13th, 2012. More details will be coming over the next week. But please go ahead and mark your calendar now.
