addicted very keen on going to as many as WordCamps as possible, but some of them are in a country that I can’t get to because of whatever or sometimes there are two or more in one weekend. This basically means I can never see all the WordCamps that I’d like to… but I would like be in on the buzz, you know, the stuff people share. Right now twitter is pretty much the best way to keep track, but it’s not ideal. In fact, this is exactly the reason why David Bisset created WPArmchair.

It has been interesting lately to see how WordPress enthusiasts have been finding creative ways to get together. We all know WordCamps and meetups, of course, but in the last months, we’ve seen the birth of the regional WordCamp, BuddyCamp, WordUp (a kind of larger meetup/un-conference), WP Camp, and even WP OnTour (whatever happened to that?).
Given all these variations, is another one needed?
After landing on the moon, the creation of the internet, and The Matrix hitting theaters, BuddyCamp Vancouver is pretty much mankind’s greatest achievement. In less then four years BuddyPress has evolved to the point where it can be at the center of two full days of awesomeness. 18 speakers, three BuddyPress core developers, the co-founder of WordPress, and a whole bunch of others where there to witness the magic.
Before you continue reading, please take a few seconds to thank the people that have made this possible. Y’all know who they are! [Read more…] about BuddyCamp Vancouver Report
Over the past few weeks I’ve been exceptionally lucky to have attended two of the most unique WordPress events of this year: the WordPress Community Summit and Pressnomics. I’ve already attended four WordCamps (!!!) in Utrecht, Edinburgh, New York, and Lisbon, each of which had its own character and cultural flavour. I tend to go to WordCamps with a few things in mind – hang out with my WordPress friends, meet current clients, pick up new clients, share knowledge, get do a bit of partying. I’m usually successful at all of these things.
WordCamps are usually focused on doing things with WordPress, whether that’s as a user or as a developer. However, in Georgia and Arizona over the past few weeks, I’ve been involved in two quite different faces of WordPress: Community and Commercialisation.
Go grab your tickets now as this is a very popular WordCamp with a traditionally strong program and speakers. Not to mention the tapas, of course 🙂 (Also, is that a dutch guy on the speakers’ list?)
For all purposes, and from the description, it sounds almost like a normal WordCamp. In their words:
A cross between the looseness of a Barcamp and the structure of a conference.
I, for one, applaud any initiative which tries to bring WordPress users, designers and developers together, no matter which format is chosen. Given the size of the community today and the rate at which it is growing, many more meetups, WordCamps, WP On Tours and other events are sorely needed as nothing replaces meeting people face to face to create ties. Case in point: WP Realm. It would probably have not happened had not its founding members met (and had drinks) at some point.
