Today we’re going to divert from our regularly scheduled (that’s a joke) writing to inform those of you who are local to Edmonton, AB about Wordcamp Edmonton. Taking place on November 18 & 19, 2011, Wordcamp Edmonton is the place to be if you’re a WordPress user, designer, developer, or even just someone who wants to learn more about publishing and the web in general.
We write a lot about WordPress on the ol’ Paper Leaf blog, since it’s our publishing platform of choice. We’re actually involved in the organization of this, Edmonton’s inaugural gathering of WordPress-ians (we are Edmontonians ourselves, after all). Hit the jump to learn more about what a Wordcamp is, who it’s for, and why you should be there (plus, tickets are only $40!).
What is a Wordcamp?
Wordcamp is a WordPress-central sanctioned event that is all about WordPress, the world’s most popular publishing platform. Various speakers come to talk on their subject of choice – subjects to be expected include:
- WordPress theming
- WordPress development tips & tricks
- WordPress for designers
- General web design topics
- Talks on SEO and content
- Beginner WordPress workshops and more.
Who is Wordcamp Edmonton For?
If you’re any of the following, you should buy your ticket to Wordcamp Edmonton now: a website content manager; blogger; general WordPress user; or a website designer or developer. You don’t have to be familiar with WordPress to benefit from attending Wordcamp Edmonton – and on the flipside, if you are familiar with WordPress, you’ll love the in-depth nature of some of the talks.
