Awesome, eh? Great story by CBS 42 in Bham on WordCamp Birmingham.
Andre Natta and the rest of the planning crew down in Birmingham have been working non-stop to make sure that the first south-eastern WordCamp is going to be a great success. If you’re into WordPress [ and really, who isn’t? 😉 ], they’re still looking for both sponsors and speakers. I have two sessions planned […]
