SASS, GULP, GRUNT, CVS, GITHUB were new terms I heard at the September Wordcamp meeting in Baltimore. I attended a WordCamp in Atlanta in 2009 that I really enjoyed.
WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.
The Atlanta conference include sessions for beginners as well as advanced sessions targeted to web developers who make a living designing websites. I learned so much. I consider myself an intermediate WordPress user after using it for 7 years. This co Nyerere was aimed toward developers. The Baltimore conference was over my head two-thirds of time. It was very advanced as least for the sessions I attended. I did find one session that I did understand and will be able to use content.
They did serve a nice box lunch. It was nice to see many women attending. The Apple Mac seemed to be the computer of choice. I think I was the oldest person attending.
