With 17% of the web using WordPress it’s no wonder there is a WordCamp every week. More than that with 75 scheduled for this year. These ‘unconferences’ are informal gatherings of like-minded people from bloggers to developers to creatives. The content is based on those attending and has a heavy bias towards the local community.
From WordCamp Central:
WordCamps come in all different flavors, based on the local communities that produce them, but in general, WordCamps include sessions on how to use WordPress more effectively, beginning plugin and theme development, advanced techniques, security, etc.
Definitely worth attending for the networking and geekery alone. To find one close to you here is a list of WordCamps. I found mine and it is in Los Angeles on September 15, 2012.
I’m excited to attend, get my geek on, and learn a ton about WordPress. Hope to see you there!
