With the temps heating up here on the East Coast, thoughts of summertime are in my head and in the air.
Summer means Camp!
These days that also means WordCamp.
Actually, WordCamps are not just for the summer but are run all the time all over the world. It’s usually a weekend confab where people having an interest in WordPress get together to hear speakers, share experiences, and generally soak up the world of WordPress.
Who goes to WordCamp? Having been to two of them in New York City, I can tell you that you’ll run into every type – from hardcore geeks to vendors of WordPress products and services to folks who need help with their sites at the Happiness Bar. All usually have one word on their lips – WordPress.
Check out if a WordCamp is in your area. I think you’ll like going to a WordCamp. You’ll get a good sense of just how big WordPress is, how it is being used, and where it’s going. You’ll certainly meet people who have at least one interest that you share.
The fee for any WordCamp is $40 and usually includes a world-class swag bag of stickers, pens, gewgaws, and – if you’re lucky – a WordCamp T-shirt.
Can’t make it to a WordCamp? Want to get a sense of what it’s like? WordPress TV is always on and you’ll see the kinds of things speakers present.
