At WordCamp Atlanta this past weekend, I gave the opening keynote, “WordPress Resolutions: What to Expect in 2010.” It went pretty well, and more people approached me about volunteering than at any previous WordCamp, which was cool. Here are my slides:
There’s also a video of the talk (I don’t come on until a few minutes in).
I talked about the plan for WordPress 3.0 (the merge with MU, custom post types, blog menu improvements, core plugins, new default theme, stricter scope control), being nice when communicating with each other, doing more to involve design/ux contributors, mentoring programs, increasing diversity among the core contributor pool, the ideas forum, redesigning WordPress.org and WordCamp.org, and mini-camps for kids to get them into WP development. I also said my personal resolution was to convince 5 theme developers to go GPL in 2010. More detail on all these topics will be forthcoming as they get fleshed out a bit.
