WordCamp UK A Few Places Left

For those of you thinking you may have missed out on this coming weekend’s WordPress fun at WordCamp UK in Manchester, think again!

As the tickets did not completely sell out, we are making the last few available on the door, as we did last year.

You must email me (mike at my domain ) to reserve a ticket, and then turn up on Saturday morning with your £30 cash.

To recap, WordCamp UK is this weekend, July 17th and 18th, at the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School which is in Manchester city centre, a few minutes walk from the main Piccadilly train Station.

There are four simultaneous tracks : General & user, Specialist & developer, Miscellaneous & spontaneous and a ‘Genius Bar’ (a range of WordPress experts available to advice attendees on a one-to-one basis).

I look forward to seeing you there.

New Corporate Site

I finally got round to creating and launching my new corporate site at zed1.com, a mere 7 months after I started the business!
It’s one of those things that kept getting put on the back burner, but I’ve finally done it, though it’s not complete and really only a temporary logo and design.

Still, I wanted to get it done in time for WordCamp UK in Cardiff this weekend.

WordCamp UK 2009 – This year it’s Cardiff

I have now bought my ticket to WordCamp UK 2009. The second annual UK-based WordCamp. This time the venue is Cardiff and I am really looking forward to it.

Last year’s WordCampUK was the first and went really, really well. I got to speak at the event, I met some great people, and for me, it was a life changing event — literally! Having listened to and spoken to a number of people who earn all or part of their living with WordPress, I decided to give up my job and work for myself.

I can’t promise it will be quite so significant for you, but I do promise you will hear some great speakers, and meet some really nice people. Some who are experts, some who are beginners, plenty in between, all of whom are fans of WordPress.

WordCamp UK 2009 Logo We all work together to make it a great couple of days from which everyone can learn something, be inspired, and maybe, just maybe, it can change your life too.

I have volunteered to speak again, but don’t let that put you off. 🙂

This time I am bringing the family along a day early and I’m looking forward to seeing some of what Cardiff has to offer. I’m especially looking forward to the Dr Who and Torchwood exhibitions

Tickets are now on sale, with a discount before May 31st. We are looking for Sponsors too.

Come along, all are welcome. Please book early, as places are limited.
