WordCamp Breakaway Sessions

Building a Blogging Community

I’m still live blogging here in WordCamp Philippines 2008, and I’ve seen Matt already! I still haven’t had the chance to make him sign my excuse letter, though. 😀

These are the breakaway sessions I’ve attended with Lexie and Dre.

First Session: Creating WordPress Themes and CSS Power by Gail Villanueva

Gail discussed the basics of creating WordPress themes especially The Loop, the separate theme files, and widgetizing themes. I was hoping for a more advanced discussion, though.

Second Session: Building a Blogging Community by Blogie Robillo

I actually liked having attended this session, it really gave me an idea how to start/continue forming the Web Standards Philippines group with Shari and Lexie.

Blogging and Journalism

Third Session: Blogging and Journalism by Danilo Arao

I couldn’t actually explain much about this session, but I’ve learned a lot about opinion, position and views about blogging and journalism—the laws, government policies around the world, personal opinions, and much more.

Photos with Matt on a later post. 😀

Here at CSB for WordCamp

WordCamp Philippines 2008

I’m live blogging here at the De La Salle College of Saint Benilde, and Matt Mullenweg is still missing.[1] It’s 9 in the morning and WordCamp Philippines 2008 still hasn’t started yet. I’ve already met Lexie, Dre, Shari and Ronnie, and the hall is still filling in with people.

The event is about to start in minutes, so I’ll just post another update then.
