WordCamp for WordPress users: A 2-Day Conference

I'm going to WordCamp

Since I’m still learning how to use WordPress, I might as well go to WordCamp. If you want to know how to blog and develop your blog, this might just be your answer. Come and join me! Limited attendance. Registration is $25.

I copied the following information from http://2007.wordcamp.org/:

WordCamp is a 2-day conference for WordPress users and developers. The first day will focus on how to be a better blogger, the second on the development and future of WordPress.

When? 7/21-7/22, 2007
Where? Swedish American Hall, San Francisco CA
Cost? Twenty-five dollars, with scholarships available.
Why? To get WordPress users together, learn from each other, figure out the future of publishing on the web, and have a good time.


We’ve tried to mix it up a little this year, with the first day focusing primarily on user topics and the second day primarily on developer topics, but we also think there’s a lot of overlap.

Cool note: Every single speaker is a WordPress user.
