Have you attended a WordCamp? I have not, but I’d like to hear from anyone who has. In fact, I might be interested in helping plan or organize a WordCamp in Ohio. As an extensive WordPress user, organizing a WordCamp seems a great way to give back to a community that has given me and countless others so much.

The first WordCamp was organized in 2006 by Matt Mullenweg in San Francisco. Since then, more than 314 WordCamps have been held in 38 different countries. WordCamp is all about WordPress, and doesn’t discriminate by skill level like some conferences do: everyone from professional WordPress developers to novice enthusiasts can attend. From what I can tell, WordCamp is a great place to learn more about WordPress, expand your professional network, partner with others, and meet other outstanding WordPress users.

Here, Jeffro discusses his first ever WordCamp San Francisco experience. It’s an interesting read and seems to provide a good overview of what to expect at WordCamp.

And here’s a video from WordCamp San Francisco 2013:

WordCamps are nonprofit endeavors, with ticket prices averaging around $40 depending on the location and venue. A quick look at the WordCamp calendar will help you find a WordCamp near you in 2014.

If you’ve attended a WordCamp, please take a few moments to share your impression and experience in the comments below. What did you take away from that one time… at WordCamp?
