WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open source personal publishing software that powers over 75 million sites on the web.
Each individual event is organized by local WordPress users, developers and fans. Showcasing local talent is one of the best things about WordCamp, and a WordCamp program includes local speakers/presenters whenever possible.
WordCamps make a point of being accessible and affordable for attendees. WordCamps are operated by tireless volunteers, from the organizers who plan it all to the volunteers who work the event and the speakers who donate their time to teach you new things. Expenses covering venue, printing, snacks and speaker gifts are entirely covered by ticket sales and our wonderful event sponsors.
