Coming to a WordCamp Near You

Every now and then I like to remind people about upcoming WordCamps. WordCamps are locally-organized, casual conferences held all over the world that focus on WordPress. Bloggers, developers, and every other kind of WordPress fan get together to show off cool things they’ve done with WordPress, teach and learn from each other, meet new co-conspirators, and generally have a crazy fun day or weekend with other people who share their love of WordPress. Often, members of the WordPress.com team from Automattic are in attendance, and would love to meet more of you!

There are WordCamps this weekend in Albuquerque and Portland, so if you’re anywhere near these cities, you should try to attend (we’ll be there!). In Portland, the WordPress Foundation also will be sponsoring some special activities around Software Freedom Day (I’ll be at this one, testing and giving a sneak peek to attendees of some new features in the works).

Is there a WordCamp coming up near you? Let’s find out!

    I am using WordPress.com and am, thus, not self-hosted. Do you think a lot of the topics discussed would still be applicable to me?

      Absolutely! Talks vary in topic though, so just check the schedule for the WordCamp to see if you can find things that interest you. You could also contact the organizers for an event near you when they are still in planning stages and ask them about the topics you’re interested in. I would also recommend attending just to be a part of the community. WordPress users and developers are completely awesome!

    I notice that there is only one camp available in Canada. It is on the EAST coast. Canada also has a WEST coast with a thriving artistic and writing community.

    Someone mentioned Edinburgh, why not go the whole hog and come to Inverness, capitol of the Scottish Highlands. New University planned here over the next two years and we cover the whole of the Highlands and Islands, a vast area that relies on internet. Fantastic venues, fantastic food and fantastic people.

    I agree with Dougal Quixote: when you come th the UK, don’t do the capitals, go inland!! So after Inverness, come to Oxford, UK!! loads of venues, accommodation, bloggers, events, good cafes & food…. really close to London on the train but also accessible to the rest of the Midlands/south-West/south-East!! looking forward to seeing you 🙂
