Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog release party

Last night was the release party for my book Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog. The whole thing was in conjunction with an event called WPNight, in which I participated as a speaker, along with a couple of other excellent people from the Swedish WordPress community. Matt Mullenweg was there too, unfortunately not physically but via Skype, and he answered questions from the audience. All in all, WPNight was a nice event – if you know any Swedish be sure to check out the videos, the whole thing was recorded of course.

The hundred or so people at WPNight was the bussed to my release party for the book, hosted at Carnaby. We all had a great time, having beers and enjoying great talks until late. It was a nice evening all and all, I’m very happy about it.

If you’re interested, be sure to check out photographer Daniel Carlbom’s photos from the events. The posts are in Swedish, but I’m sure you’ll be able to understand the photos all the same… You’ll find his photos from the WPNight event (where he got in late, unfortunately, but he did catch me) as well as the ones from the Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog release party over at his blog.

And finally, Swedes should read my Swedish post on TDH.se about the whole thing, and you should all obviously fan me on Facebook. How’s that for shameless self promotion huh?
