WordCamp 2010 Orange County Style

OC WordCampI’m excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at WordCamp in Orange County, California on April 24th! The organizer of this event — Brandon Dove (of Pixel Jar, Think Press and @brandondove fame) and I met & became friends at Blog World / WordCamp Las Vegas last October.

Brandon has asked me to cover two topics related to building WordPress plugins — here they are with a link to the blog posts I did over on OC WordCamp’s blog for each of them:

  • Pimp Your WordPress Plugin — this presentation’s going to show people how to create their own Platform Modifying Plugin (PMP or Pimp) using a Model View Controller (MVC) approach … you can expect that I’ll be sharing some tips & tricks of plugin development in addition to the MVC stuff as well 🙂 .
  • How to Create a Premium WordPress Plugin — In this presentation, I’ll be covering some material that I have seen nowhere else — trust me, as I’ve been building premium wordpress plugins I’ve had to figure this all out from scratch … This presentation will cover a lot of strategy, higher level architecture but will also get into the nuts and bolts of how to do this technically.

You might now be asking yourself:

Uh … is this just one of those technical conferences? … No, it is going to be much more than that.

My topics are fairly technical but OC Wordcamp is going to have something for writers, entrepreneurs, bloggers, developers, graphic designers and marketers alike. If you’ll be in or around Orange County that weekend then I hope you’ll attend — it’s going to be awesome!


  1. Sat in on your creating a premium plugin session and gotta say it was great! Lots of good ideas on monetizing a plugin. Looking forward to checking out the slides.

  2. Blair, had a blast at OCWC and chatting it up with you over the weekend. I look forward to collab’ing with you in the future 🙂

    BlairCamp 2011 is gonna rock!

  3. I am really liking this site except I’m having issues with making the RSS feed to come up in Google Chrome. Any suggestions? Thank you much!
