It wouldn’t feel right to have the first-of-its-kind BuddyCamp Vancouver without the BuddyPress lead himself so we are really pleased to announce that in addition to core contributor Boone Gorges, BuddyPress lead John James Jacoby will be here!
John James Jacoby will be keynoting on Oct. 14th as well as helping lead the BuddyCamp Hack Day on Oct. 15th.
From his profile on Automattic…
A native Wisconsinite, John has natural love of beer, cheese, and a strong dislike for sub-zero temperatures. He is a lover of naps, puppies, puzzles, and things with wheels and gears. When he isn’t helping build neat stuff with code, he enjoys traveling the world, taking pictures, a good cup-o-tea, and helping people use (and extend) WordPress, BuddyPress, and bbPress.
We have a bunch of other really good speakers that we will be announcing shortly. There are still a few slots left so if you are passionate about BuddyPress and would like to share your insights, please see our Call for Speakers page. The deadline is coming up fast, Wednesday, Sept. 19th so don’t delay!
