I am so excited to share that WordCamp is finally coming to Sacramento, California’s beautiful capitol city! WordCamp Sacramento 2015 will be happening on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at The Art Institute of California — Sacramento.
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. They are attended by a wide range of people, including designers, developers, business owners, bloggers, consultants, and anyone who uses WordPress in any way — from newbies to the advanced.
Brian and I have attended many WordCamps, multiple years in a row, including WordCamp Chicago, WordCamp Phoenix, WordCamp San Francisco, WordCamp Seattle, WordCamp Orange County, WordCamp San Diego, WordCamp Las Vegas, WordCamp Reno, and WordCamp Los Angeles.
Finally, We’re Having WordCamp Sacramento 2015
The Sacramento WordPress Community has been working to host a WordCamp in the state Capitol for quite a while, and as co-organizers of the Sacramento WordPress Meetup Group, Brian and I have been champions for the event and are thrilled to be part of an awesome team of organizers who are volunteering time, resources, and energy to make WordCamp Sacramento happen.
Here are quick links to our Organizer Interviews:
The event is a one day conference focused on all things WordPress.
There will be two tracks of learning sessions, a beginner/user track and an advanced track, that begin at 9:00 am and wrap around 5:30 pm. That’s an entire day packed with opportunities to learn more about WordPress, expand your skill set, meet other WordPressers in our local community, chat with the speakers and sponsors, enjoy a catered lunch, pick up your free t-shirt and swag, and attend an after party at the River City Saloon.
Pretty awesome. To say we’re excited about how the event is shaping up is putting it mildly. Currently we’re awaiting speaker confirmations, and as soon as we have them all, we’ll be publishing the schedule for the day on the website and introducing you to the speakers.
Mark your calendars because tickets go on Sale on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at 10:00 am Pacific.
There will be only 150 tickets available this year, and as the only Northern California WordCamp this year, we expect tickets to sell out fast. Plus, how could you not want a ticket with all the cool stuff you get with it?!
Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, and the volunteerism from our organizing team and our local WordPress community, tickets for WordCamp Sacramento are only $20.00! That’s it.
