Finally made it out to WordCamp in San Francisco.
Some interestingness that I encountered today:
- Chris Lea from Media Temple pitched NGINX. Apparently, it blows away Apache in performance. Whereas Apache uses forking, NGINX is asynchronous.
- Joseph Scott pitched the Open Source WordPress iPhone App.
- Sam Bauers on maintaining WordPress using SVN. You can now move the content directory outside of the WordPress directory. Symlink to plugins that you want SVN to maintain, like Akismet.
Also got a free t-shirt, lunch, and tons of coffee!
