Some pictures from WordCamp DFW
This past Saturday, I attended WordCamp DFW as a co-organizer. It was interesting to be a small part of the organizing team and to get an idea of how a WordCamp gets put together. Since I had just been in Canada for 9 days, I took Hero along with me so we could hang out. He…

Packing Light for WordCamp Philly
