“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. WordCamps are open to WordPress.com and WordPress.org users alike.” (WordCamp Central).
Started as a BarCamp-style 1-day conference in 2006, it spread out fast — just like WordPress did — to become very active community events held in 50+ cities (each year) all around the world.
We are working on setting the date (sometime in the second half of this year) and venue for WordCamp Detroit right now. Until the event site is fully set up, I’ll post related news on this blog.
