Open Source Week Vancouver 2011 recap

If you missed out on our talk you can watch it here.


It was great to meet so many individuals who use Vanilla in one form or another. From freelancers, agencies, and even a few of the speakers, Vanilla’s presence at Open Source Week Vancouver was impressive.

WordCamp Developers

It was great to see so many WordPress developers using Vanilla for various projects. I spent a lot of time fielding questions after our presentation. It’s great to see so many people using our new suite of WordPress plugins and widgets and I had an excellent time demoing it in the lounge throughout the day. I look forward to seeing all the creative projects launched in the near future. Thanks for coming out and supporting Vanilla!

Make Web Not War

This was our second year presenting at this event. As always it is interesting to see such a varied audience and speaker list from all walks of web life. This year I was honored with the main stage for my talk and 200+ attendees came out to see the show. The response was excellent, we won for most tweeted and quotable presentation of the day!

Good people, good times …

As I’ve already mentioned, my biggest take away are the people I met, the agencies and firms I discovered, and most importantly the friends I made. I would be remiss if I did not shout out to the wonderful people that made this experience worthwhile. I would list them all here, but that would be a ridiculously long list.

Thank you all for your continued support and wonderful feedback, we hope to see you all next year!
