WordCamp Video Highlight 2018/09/28

I had the pleasure of attending WordCamp Pittsburgh on September 22, 2018. This is very convenient for me since it is only an hours drive. I had volunteered to help out with the video cameras. Jim Coyle was the lead for the video team and had everything well organized for the event. The videos will start to appear on WordPress.tv shortly. I had a great time, made some new friends and got to see some of my old WordPress friends. The event was well organized and ran smoothly.

WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/01/06

“Pro bono work is fun and rewarding. It is also a great way to level up your WordPress prowess and reputation, either as a freelance developer or as part of a digital agency. When you give back to society, you receive back as much, if not more.”
