From WordPress curious to WordPress expert, WordCamp Portland has something for every wordsmith


From WordPress curious to WordPress expert, WordCamp Portland has something for every wordsmith

Well, well, well. It’s that time again. It’s WordCamp Portland this weekend—arguably the best WordCamp around, in Portland or otherwise.

But if you want to go, you better hurry. There are only a handful of tickets left.

Held September 17-18 at the Eliot Center, WordCamp Portland will be an unconference broken up by a smattering of interesting featured speakers.

WordCamp Portland 2011 will span all day (9ish to 5ish) on Saturday and the afternoon (1:30ish to 5:30ish) on Sunday…. We’ll be having a few featured speakers throughout the weekend. These will be pre-selected speakers on topics that appeal to a wide audience of WordPress users. Most of the rest of the event will be in an unconference format which allows attendees to bring ideas for topics for which they have expertise or for which they’d like to find some answers.

This year, the event features at least a dozen folks from Automattic, the company that manages the WordPress codebase and WordPress.com.

And even if you’re not a WordPress user, it’s still possibly the best place to talk blogging with a group of likeminded individuals.

What if you’re just curious about blogging? Well, to help people who have wanted to blog but haven’t yet taken the leap, there’s a first timer workshop:

This workshop is meant for those with no prior experience blogging with any platform. If you’re currently blogging or are looking for a refresher on best practices the workshop is not for you. This class is for the people who are totally new to blogging.

Want to help? They’re are still opportunities to volunteer and sponsor.
