WCBHM10 & Birmingham’s New Railroad Park

For the third year in a row, I attended WordCamp Birmingham. And for the third year in a row, it’s delivered on great content. My favorite session was one that I almost passed on; Sara Cannon‘s “Beyond the System Font: Advanced Web Typography” sounded like the same talk she delivered last year, but the technology has leaped forward in the past year, so the session was totally new. I will be implementing typekit.com on this blog, very soon. Thanks, Sara.

Yesterday, we were meeting outside at Birmingham’s newest urban project called Railroad Park. It’s a very nice greenspace right in the middle of town, with spacious covered pavilions that we used for shelter from the really hot sun. I walked around the park before heading back to Georgia and took a bunch of photos, the best of which are below.

I’m Going To WordCamp Birmingham

I paid my registration fee on Friday, and I’m really looking forward to attending. I’ve only been using WordPress since late June, but I’m already hooked. Anyone else going? I’ll be driving to Birmingham on Friday night, since things get going at 9:00 Saturday morning.
