Its the new year, and, coming soon, will be your local WordCamps.
For those who don’t know what a WordCamp is, it is, essentially, a conference about WordPress. They are run in many cities around the world by dedicated volunteers. It is a great way to learn new things and meet new people in the community and the cost to attend is very good. Take a look at https://central.wordcamp.org/ to see if you have some near you.
I am local to Toronto, so, every year I do my best to attend all the WordCamps within driving distance and I will be armed with my DragonTeach stickers, so look for me and I will give you one. The local ones I usually attend are:
- St. Catharines
Additionally to the ones above, I attend WPCampus; where WordPress meets higher-ed. If you teach WordPress I highly suggest that you come out to this conference. Last year, DragonTeach was a sponsor, so, you would have seen me there. This year its in New Orleans on July 15th to 17th.
Also not local to me, but a good one to attend is WordCamp US. Running on October 27th to 29th, its the biggest camp in North America, and where Matt Mullenweg from Automattic sums up the past year and talks about upcoming plans for the future of WordPress. If you do anything with WordPress its worth attending.
See you all there!
