Add Links To WordPress List Pages

Will We Meet You At WordCamp Germany This Weekend?

wordcamp-2009-mitteldeutschlandFrank, Micha and I will participate at the WordCamp Germany this weekend. We are looking forward to see Matt and everybody else in the WordPress scene. We hope we will meet some of our readers as well. It’s always great to meet people in person, especially if you know them just via internet for a long time.

Last year I had the pleasure to be at the WordCamp Dallas 2008. It was really great to talk to Lorelle, Matt, Liz, Ronald, Ptah, Jeffro, Charles and many more. I hope this event will have the same cool, relaxed and friendly atmosphere as last year in Dallas. But I’m sure, Frank and his team will provide a great event this weekend.

We really hope to meet many people there and have a nice chat with everyone, it will be a great opportunity to exchange ideas, opinions, experience and knowledge.

Hope to see you there and if not, we probably will let you know what happened at the WordCamp Germany.

Also the new year will bring many new features to WordPress. Here is a quick peek at the up and coming next steps in WordPress development. Continue reading …
