WordCamp Miami is coming! Spring is WordCamp season and this means WordCamp events are happening all around the world. We love everything WordPress and we love attending WordCamps, so we’ve decided to sponsor WordCamp Miami.
Why you ask? Well it is currently snowing in Michigan and the inviting sun of Miami is sounding pretty good. Besides the weather, we just want to help support the WordPress community and there is no better way than to sponsor a WordCamp.
In an effort to get even more involved, I am speaking at WordCamp Miami. Yep I’m a tad nervous, since I’ll be joining a list of great WordPress experts like Dre Armeda, Michelle Schulp, Chris Lema, Mika Epstein, Sarah Gooding, and Pippin Williamson.
What’s the Scoop with #WCMIA?
WordCamp Miami will be held at The University of Miami from May 9-11. This is the five year anniversary of the event, so the organizers have some special events planned for attendees.
The main conference events run Saturday (May 10th) and Sunday (May 11th) with each day running approximately 8am to 4:30pm. The team is also offering a special third day on May 9th for a limited number of attendees.
All tickets include full access to the entire weekend, lunch on Saturday, a WCMIA t-shirt, access to the MediaTemple Networking Party on Saturday night, and various goodies and special events.
Why Should You Attend a WordCamp?
If you love WordPress or want to get involved with WordPress, it’s a great opportunity to learn more about WordPress and interact with the local WordPress community. Many of us don’t leave of our monitors much, so it forces us to get up and explore the world around us and the people that make that world cool.
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 is about communicating and engaging with likeminded people who love graphic design, coding, and internet marketing. It’s about making friends and creating some wonderful relationships you wouldn’t find anywhere else. It’s about you, me, and everything that is good in our WordPress community.
Will You Be Attending?
There is still time to grab tickets. Just jump on over to the official WordCamp Miami website and register before they sell out.
If you are headed to Miami, come on over and have a chat with me and Debbie Saro. One of the best parts of attending a WordCamp is meeting other WordPress users and developers. I’d love to meet you and Debbie would too.
