I spent this past weekend in San Francisco attending this year’s WordCamp event. There are over a dozen such event all over the world (In fact, there will be one in Beijing and Shanghai this September),
yet this one was overbooked and drew over 400 WordPress fans! Some folks came all the way from England and Australia.
The WordPress ecosystem is thriving and that is a good news for everyone. With 11 million downloads in the past and 30,000 daily installations, WordPress skills are in great demand. Skills such as plugin and theme developments are in short supply. According to Toni, some customer project budgets are over $100,000. Isn’t it fun to work on something that empowers millions of users, while making a good living?
