WordCamp Boston Starts!

Finally WordCamp Boston begins on Saturday! Getting up early! This is my first WordCamp and I am seeing what WordPress’s bell and whistles are. Being a newbie, I would like talk to the folks who can get behind the WP engine and make it roar. It’s got a sweet CMS that clients love, but is that enough? Can’t wait to go the workshops to find out.
