One of the biggest WordCamp events of the year is poised to take New York by storm between November 14th and 15th. The event is being organized by Automattics own Jane Wells. Not long ago, a poll was conducted on the WordCamp New York website asking the audience what type of tracks they would like to see. Surprisingly to me, developer won most of the votes with the large scale CMS topic coming in second. That ought to be a change of scenery for most WordCamp goers as most sessions center around the business/blogger/social media types. Considering all of the WordCamp events I’ve ever attended, the one complaint I’ve heard consistently is the lack of WordPress specific content. WordCamp New York aims to quench that thirst.
Based on talks I’ve had with a few different people, quite a few folks from Automattic will be in attendance at this particular event. There is also the chance that many high profile community members will also be in attendance. Currently, I have plans on attending this event, I just need to buy the tickets. There is a chance that I’ll be once again hanging out with the WebDevStudios crew as they are familiar with the area. There is also a possibility that Michael Torbert, developer of the All In One SEO Plugin will be in attendance but he hasn’t confirmed anything to me just yet.
By the way, WordCamp New York is still looking for volunteers, sponsors, and anyone willing to lend a hand. For more information check out the official WordCamp New York Website.
I believe tickets for the event will go on sale some time in September. Once registration opens up, I’ll pass the news along. Will I be seeing you in November?
