What a big weekend! I attended, no, volunteered, at the Brisbane WordCamp held at the QUT City Campus. I drove up from the Gold Coast in almost record time (well, it certainly was record for me, as other trips have been much longer), and booked into the Royal on the Park, opposite the Botanical Gardens.
That night, I attended a Mix and Mingle event at the Stock Exchange Hotel, but the noise drove us crazy. The band in the main function room was so loud, and after a drink or two, some of us left by 8.30 pm.
I had company walking back to the Hotel, and knowing I was in for a big, busy weekend, I was soon asleep.
Volunteers were requested to be at the venue by 7.30 am. It was a pleasant walk from the Hotel to the QUT, through the Botanical Gardens. I’d love to have taken a lot longer and taken a lot of photos. (Note to self: Visit Botanical Gardens early one Saturday or Sunday morning!)
Initially, we had to wait for people and boxes of things e.g. t-shirts, lanyards, registration details etc, and soon we were joined by attendees. It was a busy time in the morning. I managed to get to a few sessions during the day.
That night there was an After Party in the Botanic Bar (QUT Campus).
LEARN ABOUT WORDPRESS
It is the second WordCamp I have attended, and though some of the information in the sessions is beyond my understanding (and I am a Blogger, not a web designer), I sometimes feel overwhelmed. There is an amazing amount of information and support for all. Friendly. Informative. Useful. Fun. One thing that always impresses attendees is the food and coffee. There’s always a coffee van, and lunch for the two days was great, and great food for morning and afternoon tea. Catering for the after parties is impessive too.
