I just received an email with an excellent question that many others might have. I was asked if the sessions would give any insight on how to better their website with WordPress? Or what is the overall takeaway I will get from the conference?
WordCamp is intended to be an opportunity to exchange information and meet people working with the platform. Our camp will have an entire set of sessions for people who want to learn more about building with WordPress. The other two sets of sessions will cover topics involving content, design, business experiences and growth, and a few other general topics. So depending on what you’re looking to improve, you’re likely to find some new ideas.
The other advantage to WordCamp is the concentration of people in the industry. It gives you a chance to talk to others and exchange your own ideas and experiences as well as meet people who might know of or about a tool you need or a service you could use. Often you can find designers and developers (or what other help you might need) that you might want to hire to take on the tasks that you don’t want to tackle on your own. But also, those same people are more often than not very happy to point you toward a solution that you can implement yourself.
So, my short answer would be, “Yes”, but of course I can’t make any guarantees. However, our hope is that you will come away with insight, inspiration, and friends.
