Word-Up Scotland

Saturday at Word-Up Glasgow was phenomenal!

Apart from the usual brilliant sessions by everyone, especially Heather Burns, Kevinjohn Gallagher and Kimb Jones, it was great to talk chat to guys like Jim Convey and Martin Young to get their take on how to best approach CMS user access in WordPress.

Unlike last year’s Edinburgh Word-Up, there were lots more WordPress newbies in attendance which made for a conference that felt a little less like experienced WordPress techies talking to other WordPress veterans.  As a result the level of questions and answers made the whole day much more worthwhile for myself and has made me enthusiastic to get more involved with the group.  It has also enthused me to do more posting as you can see.

I will be checking out the Scotland Word-Up site to see when and where the monthly meet-ups will be and go along if possible.  I have also suggested to Martin that we perhaps use a hack space to do some practical hands on sessions.

There is a rumor that there will be a Word Camp in Edinburgh this year as well.  I think I will definitely be up for that one.
