I had the good fortune to attend WordPress 2006 last year, and really enjoyed the chance to meet people there, and learn about some of the many different things being tried out with WordPress.
Unfortunately, I won’t be attending this year (wish I was), but it looks like there’s a great list of speakers participating. I’m hoping that Matt Cutts decides to share his Whitehat SEO Tips for Bloggers with a wider audience after the conference – I’m sure that many folks would be happy to see those.
David Dalka shared his Future State Wishlist for WordPress 2.3, offering some interesting suggestions for the future development of WordPress. He also tagged me, asking for some suggestions on the software.
Thinking through what I would like to see go into future versions of WordPress, I’ve realized that I do really like the approach that the software is taking, and the ability to choose between so many different plugins. A tip of my hat to all of the people out there who have undertaken the creation of a plugin, and supporting and updating those.
My suggestions might be better suited for ideas on how template builders might make their templates a little more search engine friendly – I’m going to take my time, and put together a list of some ideas, which I will hopefully publish sometime within the next week or so.
Anyway, to those attending WordPress 2007, I hope that you have a great time.
