My Saturday mornings are usually either 1) a day to sleep in after a late night Friday or 2) a day to get up early and hit the trailhead, climbing one of my favorite local mountains. Today, I broke that mold, getting up early to feed my brain at WordCamp LA.
My first WordCamp experience was at WordCamp San Francisco back in 2007. This past year, I worked with Brandon Dove and Jeffrey Zinn to help organize WordCamp OC. WordCamp is a great way to immerse yourself in the WordPress community and learn a lot in a short time from some really brilliant people.
Some people are put off by the thought of attending WordCamp, thinking it’s too advanced for them, but there really is something for everyone — developers, designers, bloggers and people just thinking about blogging — all of them have something to gain.
Chances are good there’s a WordCamp in your area. If you are using WordPress, or even considering using WordPress, check out the schedule of upcoming WordCamps and sign up! You’ll be glad you did.
