Think Visibility September 2009

I attended Think Visibility this September on behalf of Bronco, it was my first conference I’d attended and I must say I found the experience very interesting. The conference was held in Leeds at a casino (I forget the name, but it was a pretty cool venue).

First up was Joost de Valk, who I met just before he kicked off Think Visibility, he’s a friendly guy and he really knows his stuff, you can check out his presentation here. It was a very useful, and a highly technical presentation on speeding up WordPress and various other things :) It’s given me the kick up the ass I needed to sort out caching on my site and start using smush it.

Next up was Judith Lewis who gave a very useful presentation on universal search results, this made me realise how much I was missing out on by not doing a YouTube video for every blog post I do – perhaps I should start doing this! I met her afterwards, she seemed like a nice lady (hey anyone that gives out free chocolate has to be kind, right?)

After that there was Julian Sambles from the Telegraph and following on from that we got to choose which presentations we watched. You can view all the slides from ThinkVisibility here. Zoe Piper also did a useful presentation on the content network, which I’m sure will come in handy sometime :)

On the whole it was a great event organise by Dom Hodgson – who was really friendly and helpful, helping me decide which presentation was best for me :)
