Wrap-up - ExpressionEngine Conference

I had to leave early on the second day of the conference to fly home in time for my wife’s birthday the next day, so I missed the sessions in the second half of the day.

My Day 2 started with an early morning walk to Stumptown Coffee, where I ran into Marcus Neto and Sean Smith. They were enjoying coffee, surrounded by a couple dozen donuts they picked up at Voodoo Donuts. I grabbed a donut for the walk back to the hotel.

Shortly thereafter, I gave a talk on how to improve your clients’ experience with the EE Control Panel. As always, it was an attentive audience, who had questions and feedback.

After that I attended Adrian Macneil’s excellent talk on creating products (Adrian is the guy behind Store, the e-commerce module I use to run Mijingo).

I will restate what others have already said on Twitter and in person: this year’s conference was a huge success. Brad Parscale and his team put on a great event. There was a lot of variety in the program, a solid venue in a great city, and enough food, drink, and snacks to keep everyone going through the days and evenings. It was well-done and everyone could just focus on hanging out, learning, talking, and sharing.

From my point of view, everything went off without a hitch.

Next year, I hope even more people come out to the conference, wherever it’s going to be.
