A brief about WordCamps.
WordCamps are casual conferences covering everything related to WordPress, organized in several cities world over, as listed on the wordcamp.org website.
The WordCamp conferences are attended by people ranging from blogging newbies to professional web developers and consultants, and usually, combine scheduled programming with workshop sessions and other activities.
WordCamps do not discriminate, WordPress users, developers, designers, and other enthusiasts should all feel welcome at a WordCamp, regardless of their experience level. The session generally spans a variety of formats, including lectures/presentations, live demos, Q&A, workshops. Ignite-style lightning presentations, panels, interviews, and any other format you can imagine.
Presentations are shared with the broader WordPress community by posting session slides/videos to the WordCamp channel on WordPress.tv.
The content of the sessions is firmly focused on using and developing for WordPress. Issues around blogging, business, and social media that are related to WordPress use may be included, but the bulk of the program(at least 80%) is specifically about WordPress.
Topics in WordCamp span the following criteria
- Advanced development
