OpenCa.mp 2010 was held this weekend, September 28-29 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Addison. For the first time ever, open source developers were brought together for (what else?) an open sharing of information. More than 500 attendees participated in one common and five different specialized tracks–WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, .NET, and multimedia. Check out this video telling all about OpenCa.mp:
The speakers were fantastic and I accumulated over 100 pages of notes using my Penultimate app (one of my favorite paid apps from the App Store, btw)! We’ll share further details in upcoming blog posts, but for now I’d like to give a nice shout-out to some of awesome presenters from sessions I attended. Links go to their websites and/or blogs.
