It’s been a year since I went to my first ever WordCamp – WordCamp London. And now I’m back for a second attempt.
At numerous locations, often in big cities, regular WordPress-themed meetups occur. Anyone can run one and those attending can be anybody from bloggers to developers, with all levels of knowledge. However, probably the biggest in the UK is the appropriately named Big WP, held in London. Less regular than some others it, none-the-less, attracts a big audience and some impressive speakers.
For this meetup, the first in a while, I’ve attended – my first Big WP.
For my first ever WordCamp, I thought I’d go ‘all out’ – the full 3 days and volunteering as well. Oh, and it’s the London WordCamp too, the largest in the UK.
So, I thought I’d write about my experience – the highs and the inevitable, exhausted lows.
For those who don’t know what a WordCamp is – it’s a get together of fans, users and companies about WordPress. They happen all over the world and are of varying sizes.
