Find Me at WordCamp MSP 2010

WordCamp MSP is in just 15 days. Today the presentation schedule was published. I will be speaking in the first group of sessions, starting at 9:30AM CST. After that, you’ll find me jumping in and out of various sessions (of various tracks). From 3:40PM CST to 5:40PM CST I will be helping out at the Tech Shop.

For those who do not know what the Tech Shop is, it is a place where you will find friendly WordPress experts that you can ask for help. The Tech Shop is being organized and run by the Minneapolis St. Paul WordPress User Group. This is a great opportunity to meet some local WordPress experts and get help resolving any of the issues you are experiencing with WordPress. These can be simple questions about using WordPress, more advanced questions about writing themes or plugins, and anything in between.

So bring your all of your Breadcrumb NavXT and WP Lynx related questions between 3:40PM CST and 5:40PM CST. I will have my laptop, access to a local testbed, and can try to reproduce any of the issues you are experiencing. If things are really “slow” I may even be writing some code (I hope this is not the case).

WordCamp Minneapolis 2010 – I’m Presenting

It has been confirmed, I will be speaking at WordCamp Minneapolis on November 13th, 2010. My presentation is titled How-to: Reporting Issues. I will be covering troubleshooting techniques, determining if an issue is a bug, and best practices for reporting bugs. This includes a quick primer on using the WordPress Trac. You will find this presentation in the beginner track, though it can be a good refresher for more advanced users that are not used to dealing with troubleshooting.

By the way, you may want to watch the WordCamp Minneapolis website for an announcement around October 4th. Yes, I already know what it is (it involves a change in venue, you didn’t hear this from me, capisce?).

mtekk.weblogs.us is now mtekk.us

No, the webhost did not change, I finally shelled out some cash for a domain name of my own. This in preparation of some future projects, and WordCamp MSP in November. More details on the projects will come later. In the mean time, feel free to start updating your links. Note that mtekk.weblogs.us will still link to the same blog for as long as it is hosted on weblogs.us (I do not have any intention of switching hosts any time soon).
