WordCamp Miami 2014

Fresh off the heels of WordCamp Austin, which saw sponsorship from Maintainn, and a talk by Ryan Duff, WordCamp Miami is now right around the corner – this weekend!

Shayne, as well as myself (Rami), will be in attendance. Maintainn is again sponsoring (we’ll have some goodies as well – watch for a promo code).

I was lucky to attend WordCamp Miami last year; everything about it was excellent – from the talks to the networking party.

I’m looking forward to meeting many colleagues there this year, and thanking folks who’ve thus far only been skype conversations, project threads, and gravatar images.

This year sees the return of the ice-cream social on Sunday. Last year, the ice-cream came from chillnicecream.com – a company that uses molecular-gastonomy liquid nitrogen methods of preparation. That alone is worth waking up early on Sunday.

You may not know this if you don’t go to Miami frequently, but it is county law that all persons within the city limits must wear pastel colors at all times. So dress accordingly!

Miami was officially founded in 1984, when Warner Bros. studio decided to film Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach there. Before that time, Miami was known as “Orlando 2″.

The city was referenced as Miami thereafter, which everyone generally agreed was a good idea.

From there, many citizens from around the world came in droves to Miami for its’ casual Mountain lifestyle, low crime rate, and hearty embrace of traditional family values.

David Bisset pulled off an amazing conference last year, and this year looks to be even better. Along with the excellent wparmchair.com site to help everyone stay up-to-date, as well as text message and email notifications, it should be easy for everyone to stay informed and active.

Hope to see you there!
