In a post last week, Seth Godin discussed three concepts – open, generous and connected- that he says people seek from co-workers, bosses or fellow conference attendees.
This week tickets went on sale for WordCamp Atlanta 2013 and, when I read this post, I immediately recognized those characteristics as being descriptive of attendees, speakers, volunteers and organizers of WordCamps.
WordCamps create a setting where people are avidly interested in learning new information that helps them make a difference in their world. Our community is generous with their time and shares their knowledge and experience to help others move forward. Everyone is welcomed into the WordPress community and they are eagerly shown how they can use WordPress to create their businesses and spread their ideas.WordCamps are put on by volunteers who come from the local WordPress Meetup community. The price of the tickets are kept to about $20 per day to insure that everyone who wants to, can attend. Unlike other conferences, when you announce a WordCamp, companies call to offer their support as sponsors.
So if you have any interest in creating or working on a WordPress site, jump on over and get your tickets for WordCamp Atlanta
. It is coming up on March 15 and 16th at the Loudermilk Center i
n Downtown Atlanta and the tickets are now on sale for $40.00 including lunch and a t-shirt. There will be four simultaneous tracks with presentations designed for beginners, users, designers and developers.
Come join us at Word Camp ATL!
