Upcoming WordCamps

WordCamp logoOn the WordPress.org News blog, Jane has highlighted some upcoming WordCamps:

Looking for something fun to do during your summer vacation? Why not check out a WordCamp! WordCamps are locally-organized casual conferences of, by, and for WordPress users, developers, and enthusiasts just like you. The focus of a WordCamp is to foster face-to-face connections and collaboration among the local WordPress crowd, but there are usually some out-of-towners there as well.

Click through to see the latest approved WordCamps for this summer, and visit WordCamp Central for all upcoming WordCamps, and information on how to help organize or participate in one.

This weekend, WordCamp Orange County will be held on Saturday April 24th on the UC Irvine campus.

The following weekend, WordCamp San Francisco will be held on Saturday May 1st, 2010 with a developer day on Sunday May 2nd. There will also be a party on Saturday night. If you haven’t registered yet and are interested in attending, please head over to the WordCamp SF site and register now, as these tickets tend to sell out pretty quickly.

WordPress as a CMS Case Study: WNET.org

Back in July we posted about the remarkable project that WNET (PBS of NYC) put together with Tierra to launch 50 sites in ten months using one CMS, WordPress.

Dan Goldman and Jamie Trowbridge who headed up that project, were kind enough to present a case study of how it was all done, at the recent WordCamp NYC:

WordCamp NYC 2009

WordCamp NYC will be held this weekend, November 14th and 15th. It’s a great get together for the New York, and the extended, community of WordPress-loving bloggers and developers:
wordcamp-nyc-2009

With an amazing lineup of speakers, over 525 people already registered, and 8 session tracks – there is something for everyone.

Myself and several colleagues from Automattic are flying in for this event, and I’m personally excited to see the track devoted to CMS use featuring case studies of current publishers.

If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s $45 for both days, or just $25 for Sunday. More details available on 2009.newyork.wordcamp.org.

WordCamp San Francisco August 16, 2008

WordCamp San Francisco, the 1-day conference organized by the creators of WordPress for our users, developers, and partners – will be held on August 16th, 2008 at the Mission Bay Conference Center.

It’s shaping up to be a great event with a tremendous lineup of speakers and topics, and the world famous BBQ lunch.  The goal of the conference is to:

… get WordPress users together, learn from each other, figure out the future of publishing on the web, and have a good time.

WordCamp Dallas 2008

A great way to learn more about WordPress and meet people from the WordPress community is to attend WordCamp.

What is WordCamp ? It’s an “informal gathering of WordPress users where we teach, learn, eat, drink and generally have fun with one another.”

Dallas WordCamp will be held in the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center in Frisco, Texas on March 29th and 30th of this year.

At the last WordCamp in San Francisco this past summer, it was great to see the strong turnout and diverse set of attendees and presenters. Jeremy Zilar of the New York Times captured it well on this blog post:

Well, camp is over, and all the campers have returned back to their nests. For those of you that missed out on the event, I would highly consider attending WordCamp 2008.
