WordCamp Montreal Presentation Video

The presentation I gave at WordCamp Montreal about self-hosted WordPress vs. hosting your blog on WordPress.com is now available:

I was pretty happy with the presentation overall, but there were a few wording choices that I immediately would have changed. When I used to do this public speaking thing multiple times on the same topic in a row, I loved the ability to change things that didn’t work or didn’t make it over as I had planned between presentations. The presentation would get sharper even an hour after giving it the first time (also a benefit of memorizing your talk).

And this presentation became the basis for my colleague Hugo‘s presentation on the same in Lisbon (his slide design was much better).

If you have any questions or comments you can either leave them here or on the WordPress.tv post.

WordCamp Montreal Presentation

I just finished giving a talk at WordCamp Montreal on the differences between self-hosted WordPress and hosting on WordPress.com.

If you missed the talk, you can find the slides below and I’ll post the video as soon as it’s available. Otherwise, if you have any questions or notes from the presentation that you would like to share, please leave a comment! If you have scans or pictures of handwritten notes you’ve taken, I’d love to see them to understand how people heard what I said.

It was a pleasure to present at WordCamp Montreal—my first visit to the city. Thank you to the local WordPress community for your hospitality and for attending my talk.
