WordCamp LA to OC WordCamp

Ben Huh, CEO of icanhascheezeburger

Jeff and I had an awesome time at WordCamp LA (thanks Frosty!). It was great to connect with some like minded WordPress folk. I’m still telling people about the amazingly simple, yet profitable business model that Ben Huh (@benhuh on twitter) implements at icanhascheezeburger.

Custom Hotel Lobby

The first day was great, but I have to tell you, the developer day at the Custom Hotel (see photo of the lobby above) was even better. With a crowd of only about 10 WordPress developers, we all got to have our individual questions answered. I sat next to Beau Lebens, Code Wrangler at Automattic. Not only was he a vast resource about everything WordPress, but he’s an incredibly nice, humble guy too.

For those of you who missed WordCamp LA and are bummed out, don’t worry, we’re actually going to be hosting a WordCamp of our own in Orange County, California. We’ve already begun planning and, with the aid of CalEvents, this should be a great event. We’re really looking forward to another SoCal WordCamp, and we hope you are too. Stay tuned to the OC WordCamp website for full details.
