For my friends north of the border, if you’re anywhere near Montreal around the end of August, consider attending WordCamp Montreal which is a two day event focused on WordPress. The culturally diverse city transpires into WordCamp as English and French are both well represented. The cost of admission is $40.00 and includes a T-Shirt with lunch. There will also be a special deal for those in attendance with $1.00 hosting from Netfirms.
The first Montreal WordCamp took place in July 2009 and was a great success. I don’t see how the 2010 version could be any less.
