Cami wrote a really nice post about WordCamp Portland:
The past years there has always been some knowledge to glean. Some lesson to learn. Some new person to meet and relate to. And it has always been WordCamp. And it has always been special.

Matt Pearson got a really great shot of the swag too.

WordCamp Portland is this Saturday and I’m pretty excited about the schedule we have prepped. It’s going to be a great event and a fun way to showcase Portland’s awesome WordPress community.
There are still a few tickets left for a day of BBQ, WordPress, and fun. Matt’s even coming.
