WordCamp Philippines 2008 Experience

September10

“WordCamp Philippines is not just any other blogging event here in our country.  This is the first WordCamp in the Philippines and in South East Asia too.” — anonymous

Another life experience that I won’t forget, with so much fun that I have experienced, a lot of things that I have learned, and new faces that I have seen made it really more exciting and energizing.  I’ve met other developers, bloggers and designers of which we’ve shared some knowledge and experiences that we’ve had.  I met Mr. WordPress and had the chance to have a photo with0 him doing the Rock sign because Matt really rocks and he’s super cool!  So I had this opportunity to have a picture with Matt.  I would like to thank Melo Villareal for capturing this moment.  W00ot!!

I was able to attend some sessions of which I have learned and gave me an idea how to maximize the secrets of WordPress.  Markku Seguerra speaker of  Developing WordPress Plugins made its presentation looked really simple.  I have attended Hans Koch’s WordPress & SEO session and learned that there are a lot of tools and plugins for SEO in WordPress.

It was really GREAT!!, NICE!! and FUN!! working with other blogger volunteers like Melo Villareal, Fitz Villafuerte, Jonel Uy, Fritz Tentiva, Gwen Nava, Chiq Montes, Arpee Lazaro,  Jehzeel Laurente, Rein Langit, Sharline Cruz and Arbet Bernardo.

WordCamp Philippines 2008 wouldn’t be made possible not for the organizers who spend their time and nights planning this big event!  Thank you Ria Jose, Bloggie, Winston, Andrew, and Migs.  They are the Mindanao Bloggers! And they kick some ass and they really ROCK!!

Images grabbed from different sources.  Thanks to
