WordCamp Weekly Update: July 9, 2012

Are you ready for the Stupendous And Amazing Three WordCamps that are happening on July 14-15? Of course you are.

WordCamp Boston is one of the major events in the WordCamp calendar, and this year features three tracks stuffed with great programming for two full days. Does Boston love WordPress as much as it loves sports? Tough call, but if we’ll find out anywhere, it’ll be this weekend at Boston University.

WordCamp Columbus is *the* WP event in the great state of Ohio, hosted this year at Ohio State University. This year organizers have planned FOUR tracks of sessions: Beginners, Marketing, Power Users, and Developers. John James Jacoby, lead developer of BuddyPress and bbPress, will give the keynote address. Tickets are still available, so if you’re in the neighborhood, go!

Speaking of big deal events, WordCamp Edinburgh is a whole bunch of WordPress amazingness packed into three tracks plus happiness bar plus “random overflow room,” as it says on the schedule. If you’re likely to randomly overflow with love for WordPress this weekend, Surgeon’s Hall is the place to be.

    Do you have any plans to have one of these in Minneapolis MN?

      Hi Lars! WordCamps are organized by local, WordPress-loving volunteers. We have not heard from any prospective WordCamp organizers in Minneapolis, and it doesn’t look like there’s an active WordPress meetup in the area, either. If you’re interested in starting a meetup in your area, I’d certainly encourage you to do so! Once it gets going, perhaps you’ll organize a WordCamp in Minneapolis! :)
