WordCamp Hamilton (@WordCampHamOnt) returns to McMaster Innovation Park on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open source personal publishing software that powers over 75 million sites on the web. WordCamps come in all different flavours, based on the local communities that produce them, but in general, WordCamps include sessions on how to use WordPress more effectively, beginning plugin and theme development, advanced techniques, security, etc.
The first WordCamp was organized in San Francisco by Matt Mullenweg in 2006, and since then local communities around the world have organized hundreds of others. The first WordCamp Hamilton took place in 2013, with additional events happening in 2015 and 2016.
The regularly occurring WordPress meetup group has done a fantastic job of keeping up momentum around the WordPress community in Hamilton. The next few meetups will be focused on gearing up for WordCamp.
Currently, WordCamp Hamilton is looking for local speakers and sponsors to help make this year’s event another success.
Looking for local speakers!
Do you work with WordPress and have some techniques, experiences or stories that you think might benefit others? If so, we’d love to have you consider sharing that information as a speaker. We’re always looking for local speakers to contribute. For more about speaking at WordCamp (including some topics if you want to speak, but aren’t sure what about), check out our call for speakers.
Sponsoring WordCamp 2018
Simply put, without our generous sponsors, WordCamp Hamilton would not be affordable to the vast majority of the WordPress community. For just $20 our attendees have a full day to gain insight from our speakers, network with others, and learn more about the open source WordPress project whose mission is to democratize publishing through Open Source, GPL software. All of our valued sponsors, by donating to WordCamp Hamilton, continue to make this mission a reality. Thank you both to our sponsors, and all of those who sponsor WordCamps around the world! For more on sponsorship opportunities, check out our Call for Sponsors.
