Last year I had such a great time hosting, attending and presenting at WordCamp events all over the country. I think I ended up at 9 events last year. It looks like this year isn't going to be all that different. I've already booked travel for several WordCamp events, and have mapped out several others that I'd like to attend this year if possible. Here's my current plans:
- April 24th, Orange County, California
- May 1st, San Francisco, California
- June 5th, Chicago, Illinois
- June 12th, Reno, Nevada
- July 10th, Denver, Colorado
- September 4th, Los Angeles, California
- September 18th, Portland, Oregon
- November 13th, St. Paul, Minnesota
I wish I could say that this is the year that I get to attend my first international WordCamp event, but that doesn't seem likely at this point. But, I guess there is always next year.
I have also heard rumblings of a WordCamp in Las Vegas some time in October. I'll have to dig up more details for you on that one… 😉
If you are going to be in any of the cities above on the date's listed, I strongly encourage you to attend a WordCamp event. There are a ton of great people to meet at the events and, for the price, I don't think there is a conference that offers a better value for the price. If you can't make the dates above, you can check out the full schedule of upcoming WordCamp events.
