WordCamp Detroit is coming! As summer winds down, vacations wrap up, and kids return to school, the geeks begin to circle and prepare for WordCamp Detroit. Since we love everything WordPress and we are also geeks, we’ve decide to help sponsor this year’s event at the RenCen in downtown Detroit.
Why Should You Attend a WordCamp?
If you love WordPress or want to get involved with WordPress, it’s a great opportunity to learn more about WordPress and interact with the local WordPress community. Many of us don’t leave of our monitors much, so it forces us to get up and explore the world around us and the people that make that world cool. Plus you get to listen to very small WordPress people talk about how they use WordPress to make money, run a business, or create really neat things.
WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. WordCamps are open to WordPress.com and WordPress.org users alike.
WordCamp is about communicating and engaging with likeminded people who love website design, SEO, and internet marketing.
Why Would Anyone Sponsor a WordCamp?
Because we love WordPress and everything it represents. I built a business around it and I see it liberate my clients by freeing them from me or any other web developer. It has endless possibilities and it’s the fastest growing web software around. It’s also in downtown Detroit and helps support our local economy. And honestly, I don’t think I can preach the power of WordPress if I’m not willing to personally help support the community.
Are You One of the Cool Kids?
You’ll be one of the cool kids if you attend the conference. You’ll get to hang out with people like me – your fellow internet marketing geek – and talk about well, WordPress web design. I know you’re excited.
