WordCamp Brisbane 2015 has been announced! May 30/31st at QUT in Gardens point. It seems like just yesterday that I wrote a post, but the reality is that the last few posts on this site have been WordCamp announcements.. Although I missed announcing WordCamp Sydney 2014, I’m happy to say, I’ve not missed my chance to post about WordCamp Brisbane 2015 :) 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 75 million sites on the web. – http://central.wordcamp.org/about/
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. – http://central.wordcamp.org/about/
What should I expect from a WordCamp? For more information about what to expect from a WordCamp, check out WordCamp Centra’s What to Expect page.
Please note: I’m not a WordCamp Sydney organiser, Any questions related to WordCamp Sydney should be directed towards their contact form. If you’re interested in WordPress in Sydney, also check out the WordPress Sydney meetup group.
So I don’t blog often, it’s a bad habit of mine, but it doesn’t mean I don’t love WordPress any less!
The number of WordPress professionals in Australia is forever increasing, how many are there? We don’t know – but what we do know, is that every time a WordCamp is held in Australia that up to 200 people jump at the opportunity to come out and meet other WordPress users, Designers, Developers, and even some of the crew who make using WordPress possible.
So I’m glad to be able to say, 2012 has brought with it yet another WordCamp, WordCamp Sydney, which is being held at the University of Sydney in July. I’m glad to be able to say I’ll be there, well really, I have to say, I’m rather looking forward to it!
(Did you know that the 2nd WordCamp to ever be held in Australia was WordCamp Australia held in Sydney in 2008?).
There’s not too much longer until the WordCamp is on top of us, so head over and check out their new site, talk to your friends about it, mention it to colleagues, friends and family, anyone who you think would be interested in a weekend of WordPress goodness – and don’t forget, WordCamp’s are not just for developers, they’re for users, designers and even those who don’t use WordPress, but are interested in the digital web we all work in.
Just a quick update for those of you who subscribe via RSS! I’d just like to remind you all that WordCamp Gold Coast has been announced (And will take place on Nov 5th & 6th at Bond University), and not only that, but is also open for ticket sales, accepting speaker nominations, and seeking sponsorship!. If you’re interested in WordCamp going-ons, please subscribe the the WordCamp Gold Coast RSS Feed.
Update: Just a quick update for those coming from search engines, the WordCamp Gold Coast website is up and running at: http://2011.goldcoast.wordcamp.org/ head over there for updated information :) – D
Just thought I’d let everyone know that we’ve (Me, Bronson, Lachlan and Brent)Â decided upon a date and venue for WordCamp Gold Coast 2011!
Yes, Fantastic news right? But the catch, Well, There is no catch! Other than the fact neither will be announced until we’ve got everything finalised and deposits paid.
So sit tight, It’s a-happening ( October – Novemberish ), We’re currently in the paperwork section of a few things, so once we’ve got our website up and running with details of the event I’ll be posting another update to give a callout to potential sponsors and all that jazz!
Also, Don’t forget about the Brisbane WordPress meetup’s, Â being held monthly, we’re getting a nice flow of regular users, Designers, Developers and everything in between now, The next meetup is the 7th of July at the Edge in Southbank Â and is more than just a Evening meetup, We’re planning a full day of workshops! It’ll consist of a drop-in session where people can come along and chat with WordPress people, Network, get some tips on their own sites, people are putting their hands up to help out with marketing your website, etc, so it’s looking to be a great day for those of you who might only be able to spare an hour or 2 at some point on your Saturday :) Â (But if you’re one of the few that only comes along for the evening chats in the Pub, I’m sure we can still accommodate you :))
