Since the first WordCamp was held in San Francisco in 2006, over one hundred WordCamps have been organized around the world. WordPress anticipates that number to pass a thousand in just a couple of years. Which in case you’re unsure, is pretty damn impressive.
Wordcamp’s current popularity is evidenced by the ticket sales of this year’s San Francisco installment, set to take place August 4th. Ticket sales for the event began on 6/22 and the event sold out in one day. More tickets went on sale to the public on Monday, June 25 with the promise that if tickets sell out again, more will be made available. Obviously, the WordPress community is extremely interested in celebrating and learning more about their favorite CMS and Blogging Platform. I know I am! Which I why I will be attending the Columbus, Ohio Wordcamp July 14-15. If you can find an event in your area (listed below) here is what you can expect.
What to Expect
WordCamp is billed as the conference that focuses on everything WordPress. Attended by anyone from brand new bloggers to the seasoned professionals – including WordPress developers, consultants, and anyone else excited about the platform. The camps typically combine scheduled programming with unconferenced sessions and other activities.
Here’s a quick summary:

Expect more posts on Wordcamp during and after July 14-15 when I attend the two day event in Columbus. And if you’re going to be in town it’s not too early to make plans on meeting up!
