WordCamp Update for November 1, 2011

Welcome to the weekly WordCamp Update post! This is where to find information on WordCamps about to be held, WordCamps in planning, and other community news.

This Week:

We’ve got three WordCamps coming up this weekend! And five next weekend, wow!

WordCamp Gold Coast: The fourth WordCamp in Australia, this is the first event in the Queensland area. With a low-tech and a high-tech track, there’s something for everyone. The event will be held at Bond University, and their speaker roster showcases some of the premier WordPress talent in Australia and around the world!

WordCamp Philly: Four, count ‘em, four tracks are offered in Philly on Saturday for your WordCamp pleasure and edification. Saturday also features a Classroom track for more hands-on training. Sunday is a Dev Day. Check out their great speakers on the site – or, better yet, in Philly! But they’re almost sold out, so get your ticket today.

WordCamp Toronto: They just sold out, but Toronto’s lucky attendees will enjoy an amazing lineup of 26 speakers in 3 separate tracks on Saturday and 4 workshops on Sunday. If you didn’t get your ticket in time, don’t despair! The Toronto WordPress meetup is working up some great content for the upcoming months.
