I’m looking forward to attending two conferences within the next week, starting with the sold out WordCamp Philly, taking place this Saturday, November 5th at Temple University, followed by a developer day for those who are interested on Sunday the 6th. Pete will be one of the speakers discussing their love for WordPress and he’ll be presenting “The Power of the Loop: Using Custom Post Types to Create a CMS based Portfolio Site.” Speakers will cover everything from the basics of blogging and supercharging social media on your blog, to advanced tutorials on Javascript and responsive web design.

On Tuesday, November 8th, I’ll be heading back to Temple to visit the Performing Arts Center, where TEDxPhilly will exploring the theme of “The City.” Over 25 speakers and even more performers “will take the stage to share with the audience some of the greatest challenges, innovations, concepts, and realties that shape and are shaped by cities and their inhabitants,” according to the website. I wasn’t able to attend last year, but I’m looking forward to being inspired by the speakers, who range from Jennifer Pahlka, Founder & Executive Director of Code for America, to food writer and canning enthusiast Marisa McClellan (I heart her big time). Be sure to say hello if you plan to attend either conference!
