Back in 2008 when founder of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg, was in Cape Town for WordCamp my wwworld changed like it never has before. So much so that I didn’t write a blog post about WordCamp Cape Town 2008 and didn’t go online for 3 whole weeks afterwards. For those you who remember what I’m talking about 😉
WordCamp is back this year so it’s time for bloggers and those who build their businesses in and around the WordPress eco-system to come together to connect, share and inspire.
Where is Wordcamp Cape Town 2011?
Alba Lounge at the V & A waterfront will host this year’s WordCamp, mark your calendars for 15 Spetember 2011, 8.30 am till late.
What is WordCamp?
WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.
The History of WordCamp…
The first WordCamp was organized in San Francisco by Matt Mullenweg in 2006.
Since then, local communities around the world have organized over a hundred WordCamps, and we anticipate that number will pass a thousand within the next couple of years.
So what is a WordCamp? WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open source personal publishing software that powers over 25 million sites on the web. 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. To get an idea of the types of sessions typically seen at WordCamps, check out the WordCamp channel at WordPress.tv.
WordCamps are attended by people ranging from blogging newbies to professional WordPress developers and consultants, and usually combine scheduled programming with unconference sessions and other activities. For more information on common WordCamp elements, read about what to expect at a WordCamp.
