  • WordCamp Edinburgh 2017

    I’ve been in Edinburgh all weekend for the Edinburgh WordCamp, which was hands-down the best WordCamp all year so far. It rained all weekend but that didn’t make the city any less beautiful and nor did it dampen the spirits of all the attendees. The venue was right beneath the castle and it was inspiring […]

    Some pics

    Ben took this photo of me and Elizabeth at the Handmade Burger Company on Sunday night. I love the new WordPress t-shirt I’m wearing which I got in Paris. My colleague, Kathryn, took the next two photos of us at the Jetpack booth in Paris. They’re really great. This last photo is one I took […]

    French Wapuu

    I’m having a wonderful time at WCEU 2017. The venue is enormous and works well for the 2,500 people who are here. People come to WordCamps for so many different reasons. Some come to learn about WordPress and attend as many talks as possible; some come to see old friends and make new ones; some […]

  • Photos from WordCamp Europe 2016

    I work with so many wonderful photographers that I’ve stopped taking photos myself when I’m around them. There are always so many terrific photos that come out afterwards which other people have taken. Here are some of them. This one was taken by Elio. We look like gangsters, don’t you think? It looks like I’ve got […]

  • Vienna, WordCamp EU, and Gustav Klimt

    I have been remiss in not posting anything for days and days but I have been so busy. WordCamp EU 2016 is now over and all I can say is, WOW! It was so huge with over 2000 people turning up and more than a hundred volunteers. The best part for me was seeing old friends and making […]

  • A Viennese waltz

    I’m very excited to be attending Word Camp EU in Vienna this week. The lineup of speakers is superb and so many of my coworkers are going that it’ll be like a mini grand meetup. Ben and the kids are also coming along and we’re going to stay in Vienna for an extra couple of days afterwards […]

  • Edinburgh WordCamp 2015

    I’m in Edinburgh. We all came down for the weekend so that I could attend the Edinburgh WordCamp today and it was terrific. How cool is this Scottish bag-pipe-playing Waapu? Skyscanner HQ provided the venue. Skyscanner started with just four employees working out of a tiny office in Leith. They now have several offices all over the […]

  • Auckland WordCamp and “The Smell”

    I went to my very first WordCamp yesterday at Auckland’s AUT and it was fabulous. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire day: all the speakers were terrific, the people were incredibly friendly, and I learnt lots. It was a great turn-out with around 130 people all up. I think my talk went reasonably well. The only […]

  • WordCamp Auckland 2014

    I’m giving a talk at Auckland WordCamp later this month. Matt Mullenweg volunteered me for this when he was in Auckland recently. We were talking with the Auckland WordPress group and they expressed interest in having someone talk to them about Jetpack. So Matt said I would do it. To which I replied, “Yes, of […]
