Packing my bags and heading to Santa Monica, California for the first ever Harvest Orchard CMS Conference. Orchard Harvest is focused on the Orchard CMS Developer, delivering a wide-range of topics on creating Orchard Themes, developing Orchard Modules, as well as learning best practices and tips and techniques for Orchard Website Development. Lots of really cool topics bundled into a two-day Orchard Developer Event in beautiful Santa Monica, California.

Orchard CMS Developer Conference Agenda

Tampa Bay Buccaneers HatThe agenda looks pretty good and I am really excited about the discussions, knowledge, and interaction that will occur outside of the sessions. Hopefully there will be lots of opportunities to interact with others during the evenings, too.

You can look for me. I'll be wearing a black and red Tampa Bay Buccaneers Football Cap with the buccaneer flag in the front. The chances of there being another Bucs fan is pretty slim :)
