Andrew Nacin who is one of the core developers of WordPress gave a presentation at the most recent meetup in New York City covering WordPress 3.3. The video is 35 minutes in length with Andrew going in-depth on many of the features that 3.3 will have such as the admin bar, drag and drop media uploading, post names for permalinks and more. The video is best viewed at full screen. Thanks to Steve Bruner for the hat tip.

Back on November 18th, I released the interview I conducted with Matt Mullenweg during WordCamp New York. The audio in the interview was terrible and even though I tried for 30 minutes to fix it, I just couldn’t figure it out so I released it as is. Special thanks goes out to Sallie Goetsch of PodcastAsylum.com who edited the MP3 so that it now has Stereo sound and comes across much better than the original. I’ve since replaced the recording on Talkshoe with the new one in case you want to listen to it again with better audio quality.

Here it is, the 17 minute interview I conducted with Matt Mullenweg during WordCamp New York this past weekend. I wish I could have recorded everything I discussed with Matt considering I asked him just about every question under the sun regarding this and that as it involves WordPress. In this interview, I was a bit direct in terms of my questioning and if it sounds like I am instigating anything, it’s not the case. Also, there is no bad blood or rivalry between Matt and Jame Farmer or Matt and anyone else. With that said, enjoy the interview and hopefully, it doesn’t blow your ear drums out.

During the WordPress developers meeting yesterday, Jane Wells announced that registration for WordCamp New York City was open to the public. There are a few different tickets you can purchase depending upon your schedule. You can purchase the full pass which costs $40.00 which will provide entry to all sessions on Saturday and Sunday while also getting a Tshirt and lunch on Saturday. Or, if you can only make it on Sunday, consider purchasing the Mini pass for $25.00. This will get you entry for all sessions taking place on Sunday only as well as the Tshirt but no lunch. For those with a little more cash on hand, consider purchasing the Individual sponsorship pass for $250.00. This pass nets you acknowledgment on the website as well as during the event and on the program. Last but not least is the Consultant sponsorship for both days. This costs $500.00
I’ll be attending the event and luckily for me, I have bragging rights of saying I was the first person to buy a WordCamp NYC ticket but who cares, right? At any rate, I purchased my airline tickets today roundtrip and it came out to be about $325.00. Not cheap but as a business expense, it’s not that bad. My hope now is that a nor’easter doesn’t form during that weekend.

The voting booth has opened to choose the WordCamp NYC logo. During the month of August, all sorts of entries were entered in the contest but only one of them will be used as the official logo. You can view all the entries here. Voting ends on September 7th at 5PM EST. My original idea that I was going to enter into the contest was a cross between entry 22 and 26. But, I never got around to creating the design. While there are quite a few cool designs on the page, I decide to stick with entry 23.
A late entry by Ozh which is not on the list to vote for but I’d love to buy as a T-Shirt.

One of the biggest WordCamp events of the year is poised to take New York by storm between November 14th and 15th. The event is being organized by Automattics own Jane Wells. Not long ago, a poll was conducted on the WordCamp New York website asking the audience what type of tracks they would like to see. Surprisingly to me, developer won most of the votes with the large scale CMS topic coming in second. That ought to be a change of scenery for most WordCamp goers as most sessions center around the business/blogger/social media types. Considering all of the WordCamp events I’ve ever attended, the one complaint I’ve heard consistently is the lack of WordPress specific content. WordCamp New York aims to quench that thirst.
Based on talks I’ve had with a few different people, quite a few folks from Automattic will be in attendance at this particular event. There is also the chance that many high profile community members will also be in attendance. Currently, I have plans on attending this event, I just need to buy the tickets. There is a chance that I’ll be once again hanging out with the WebDevStudios crew as they are familiar with the area. There is also a possibility that Michael Torbert, developer of the All In One SEO Plugin will be in attendance but he hasn’t confirmed anything to me just yet.
By the way, WordCamp New York is still looking for volunteers, sponsors, and anyone willing to lend a hand. For more information check out the official WordCamp New York Website.
I believe tickets for the event will go on sale some time in September. Once registration opens up, I’ll pass the news along. Will I be seeing you in November?
