WordCamp Portland 2010: Time is running out to see Matt Mullenweg, Mark Jaquith, Jane Wells, and more
It’s almost that time, kids. Time for all the WordPress—the open source blogging and content management system popular in Portland and a great number of other places—types to gather and share and learn. Time for WordCamp Portland.
And true to form, WordCamp Portland is shaping up to be one of the best WordCamps of the year, with speakers like Matt Mullenweg, Mark Jaquith, and Jane Wells among others. But if you want to take part, you better hurry. Because ticket sales close this Friday.
What’s a WordCamp, you ask? Well, it’s about the best place for everyone—from never touched a blog newbie to WordPress plugin guru—to get the latest and greatest information on how people are using the WordPress platform. Or, to hear the WordPress folks tell it:
WordCamp is 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.
But WordCamp Portland is a little special, you see. Because it pulls in people like the guy who created WordPress, one of the lead developers on WordPress, the user experience lead for the WordPress platform, and a number of local WordPress rock stars.
Don’t believe me? Would you believe a member of the core commit team?
Oh sure. Now you’re all interested. Well get to moving there tiger. Because you’ve only got a few hours left before ticket sales will be closed. Don’t stand there gawking. Scoot! Go buy your WordCamp Portland ticket. And then wait patiently for September 18 to roll around.
Want to get a little more involved than just attending? Well, step right up. There is still the opportunity to sponsor WordCamp Portland, this year.
