This past weekend I had the privilege of attending WordCamp Philly in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
I’ve been working at WebDevStudios (a New Jersey based company) since June of this year and finally got a chance to meet my co-workers for the very first time (they are as nuts as I am).

The guys I work with are just absolutely awesome. Brad Williams, my boss at WebDevStudios, was quite awesome and gave me the exclusive Philly tour on Sunday. He showed me South Street, the Philadelphia Museum of Art (the steps that Rocky ran up), and took me by the Liberty Bell.
While at WordCamp Philly, I had a chance to meet some awesome people in the WordPress community and see some awesome presentations.
I was one of the speakers at the event, and presented on using Ajax with WordPress. The presentation didn’t go as well as I would have helped (simply because it’s fairly advanced), so I will probably tone it down quite a bit next time around.

WordCamp Philly Conclusion
The highlight of WordCamp Philly (for me, at least) was Philadelphia and hanging out with my co-workers. Philadelphia is a beautiful city and definitely worth visiting again.
I got to ride in a subway for the first time ever too! Woot!
