Once again another post that should have been posted a while ago. I have taken over the responsibilities involved with organizing WordCamp Las Vegas 2011. This is the first time I have directly organized such an event, though the company I used to work for did help with the organization of the first WordCamp Los Angeles so I have some insight of how it should go. Not to mention I have the mentoring of John Hawkins who was the previous Vegas organizer so that should help a lot too.
I have made a pretty big dent in planning and what not. I have secured a date and venue, and have recently opened up the speaker application form so the ball is slowly rolling. I have enlisted the help of Sean Goodwin for some sticker/shirt/graphic design for the event as well.
I hope to put tickets for the event on sale this week, as well as start accepting sponsorship once that is all out there I think I can take a short breather for a bit which I am looking forward to.
