WordCamp UK this weekend

wordcampuk2008 This is an event I’ve been looking forward to for quite a while – WordCamp UK 2008, the first WordCamp in the UK, takes places in Birmingham during this weekend July 19-20.

There is a packed agenda planned for the two days, offering something for everyone with an interest in WordPress, whatever your knowledge or skill level and however you’re involved with blogging on WordPress.

If you’re a developer, there’s a lot of interest for you. Likewise if you run a WordPress blog. If you are simply a blogger writing a WordPress blog and don’t care much for the tech stuff, this is still an event for you.

Perhaps of greatest interest from a participant’s point of view is that WordCamp UK 2008 gives you an opportunity to connect with influential bloggers and talented designers and developers in the UK who have a passion for WordPress. That’s a big attraction for me.

Check the event wiki and blog for more information.

I’ll be there but only on Sunday July 20. Just can’t get there for Saturday as I have an unbreakable family commitment.

This first UK WordCamp is the result of an awful lot of volunteerism and planning by just a handful of people, starting with Tony Scott. Thanks to Tony and everyone who have made this event happen.

WordCamp UK 2008 takes place at The Studio in central Birmingham (map). Entry is by ticket only and ticket sales will stop late on Friday. So if you plan to be there and haven’t yet got your ticket, buy it today!

Hope to see you there.
