If you haven’t heard of WordCamp yet and call yourself a WordPress enthusiast then you’ll be happy to hear that it does exist. WordCamp is simply a group of WordPress bloggers, designers, and developers that have come together to share their enthusiasm for WordPress. Of course WordCamp is also supposed to be a sharing of ideas revolving around WordPress but because of the mix of people you’ll find that though WordPress is the main topic all kinds of ideas and experiences will be shared – from open source stuff to online politics.

The exciting thing about WordCamp UK is this year’s event will be the first held in UK. WordCamp UK is set to happen on July 19-20 in Birmingham. If you wish to attend though I couldn’t give more details since everything is still being worked out.

If you wish to keep track of the latest updates you can join the WordCamp UK mailing list or subscribe to the WordCamp UK blog. You can also help/meddle with the people organising the event by checking out the WordCamp UK Wiki where ideas regarding content ideas and ticket prices are still being thrown around.

For those located nowhere near UK you can visit WordCamp Central to check whether there’s one happening near you. If there’s none you might want to organise your own WordCamp!

WordPress is going from strength to strength, and the enthusiast community actively engaged in working with and refining the software is awesome. WordCamp can only be to everyones advantage, serving as a serious networking and knowledge sharing opportunity within the WordPress community.
