WordCamp Kyoto 2009 Information

Since I came back from my trip to Japan last month, I’ve been working on WordCamp Kyoto 2009 planning with other organizers in Japan.

WordCamp Kyoto 2009The 2-day event will consist of a series of talks on Friday (targeted for hosting companies and other businesses) and a larger conference & after-party on Saturday.

I will be the keynote/opening speaker for the “Community Day”. I’m going to cover the overview of what’s happening around the WordPress world in Japan and worldwide.
