Well, it seems like it was only last week that I was helping to organise WordCamp Melbourne 2013. In fact, it’s been just over a month since this two day extravaganza was held, way back on the weekend of April 27-28th at the┬áhistoric Storey Hall within RMIT University.

I had the pleasure of organising the event with Dee Teal (@thewebprincess), Aaron Rutley (@aaronrutley), Peter Wilson (@pwcc) and Tracey Kemp (@dogshindleg). And I don’t mind saying, I think we put on a pretty damn good event! Apart from a few very small hiccups on the weekend, the event went according to plan and everyone seemed to have a fantastic time.

As one of the organisers and “unofficial” photographer for the weekend, I didn’t get to actually sit down to see any full sessions as I was too busy running around taking photos. Thankfully, all the sessions were videoed by the talented folk from Hunting With Pixels. These videos have now been uploaded to WordPress.TV and are currently in the process of being approved and added to the site. Now that it’s all over, it’ll be great getting a chance to sit down with the other organisers and watching all those sessions that we missed.

If video isn’t your thing, you can also view all the slidedecks from all the presentations, over on Speaker Deck.

Along with helping organise all.the.things, I also presented a session myself. “Getting Started with WooCommerce” stepped through the process of installing & configuring the plugin, for first time eCommerce users. It showed how easy it is to add in all of your product data along with viewing your orders and sales reports.

If you’re game, you can watch my awkwardness in all it’s glory on WordPress.TV.

Or, if you want something a little easier on the eyes, you can check out my slidedeck below.
