Only a few days until WordCamp New Zealand on the 7th and 8th of August. WordCamp is two day conference focusing on anything and everything on and around the WordPress platform.
This is a global event that has been held 66 times since the beginning of 2009 everywhere from California to Istanbul, Lima – and another 63 far-away places as well.
WordPress is a free to download >>> open source Content Management System, often used as a blog publishing application – and as a platform for more static websites. It is developed by its community, including a group of volunteers who test each release. WordPress also powers some of New Zealand’s best websites including the Stuff blog >>> and of course our very own Elevate CA blog >>>.
And why would anyone want to spend a weekend rubbing shoulders with a bunch of folk with nothing else in common than the platform they happen to use for their website?
Well it may be that I’m a bit unusual, but here’s why I’m looking forward to this event:
As well as getting upskilled on WordPress, WordCamps are all about getting to meet other WordPress users. And the WordPress community is an interesting one ranging from tech-focussed geeks through to entrepreneurs with fantastic projects who are capable of making real change in their particular niche.
Entrepreneurship fascinates me – along with the process of bringing great ideas to fruition. So if I can lock myself away at WordCamp New Zealand for a day or so and mix with a bunch of people who are making exciting things happen, then that works for me. Here >>> are some of the speakers scheduled for this event – and the list of attendees will be just as interesting.
If you’d like to follow the event remotely on twitter the hashtag for this event is #wordcampnz. I’ll keep you posted on my personal highlights after the event right here.
