I’m very excited to announce that WordCamp UK – the UK’s largest WordPress event – will be happening in Edinburgh this year, on the weekend of 14 – 15 July!
WPScotland (the Scottish community group for WordPress designers, developers and users, for which I’m the East of Scotland Regional Coordinator) had an amazing first year last year, and it looks like 2012 will be even better as we welcome the UK’s WordPress community to Scotland.
The event website can be found at 2012.edinburgh.wordcamp.org – there’s not much there at the moment, but rest assured that a gorgeous site courtesy of Jonathan Harris and Jonny Allbut will soon be taking the place of the holding page.
The WPUK Core Group are now in the process of looking for event sponsors. If you’re interested in finding out more about sponsorship opportunities, there is information on sponsorship packages here, and you can contact Tony Scott if you’d like to sponsor the WordCamp. Microsponsorship will be available to individuals, and this can be purchased at the same time as you buy your ticket.
As with our WordUp events, talks at WordCamp Edinburgh UK will cover topics suitable for all levels of skill and experience with WordPress, from those aimed at a more technical audience to those geared towards helping bloggers and website owners get the most out of their usage of WordPress as a blogging tool and Content Management System. Some content ideas have already been proposed, and you also can add your own if you’d like to present.
If you’d like to keep up-to-date with event announcements (including when tickets go on sale), the best is to sign up for the WPUK mailing list. We’ll also be posting news on the WPScotland site, and I’ll add pertinent info here as well over the coming months.
