Listen up all you Zonies, This is a MUST attend event if you’re into WordPress!
WordCamp is coming to Phoenix on Friday, February 24th through the 26th.
Here is their press release:
Chandler, Ariz. — There?s a good chance your favorite blog, website or online store is powered by WordPress, the free online DIY website software that has put web publishing power in the hands of anyone with a keyboard and Internet access. February 24th-26th, more than 650 small business owners, non-profit agencies, realtors, photographers, designers, journalists and even kids will swarm downtown Chandler to learn easy website publishing and development at the 2012 WordCamp Phoenix.
The non-profit event brings together WordPress enthusiasts from around the globe to share best practices and strategies for a wide variety of businesses. Headlining speakers include Lisa Sabin (@lisasabinwilson), author of WordPress for Dummies, Sean Herron (@seanherron), Technology Strategist at NASA Headquarters and Jane Wells (@janeforshort), Head of User Experience at WordPress.com. Users of all skill levels and backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
?It?s an amazing mix of folks at all ability levels,? said Dallin Harris, one of the event?s organizers. ?I?ve watched small business owners go from zero net knowledge in the 101 class to publishing their own business website by the end of the conference.?
Not just for novices, WordCamp Phoenix has become the valley?s must-attend networking and continuing education event for professional web developers. A series of panel discussions and workshops aim to cultivate a creative community among design, web development and communication professions.
