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. 😀
