    Good article Jeff. I would highly recommend attending a WordCamp for sure. That’s how I got hooked on WordPress and WordCamps in general. I’ve been to over 15 WordCamps as well as organizing WordCamp North Canton for the past two years. You meet great people, attendees and presenters (and organizers) alike. I’m made some really great friendships from going to WordCamps. The wealth of knowledge you gain is worth every penny and every second. I just presented at WordCamp Toronto and had a great time. Made lots of new friends and reconnected with some old ones and learned so much.

    Thanks for the shout out, Jeff. Love it. :D Heather Steele quoted it well. I will share my experiences when I attend any.

    Hah family you actually want to see is a good way to put it! Looking forward to the 2015 WordCamp and meeting more of the extended family.

    I’ve attended 4 WordCamps so far this year (Ottawa, Montreal, Boston, Toronto) and hope to fit another one in before the year’s end (Vegas, here’s looking at you!)

    They’re great events, and as is the recurring theme in the slides, it’s about community more than about learning WordPress. The more camps you attend, the less time you spend in sessions, and more time you spent in the “hallway track” – be it hanging around the coffee, or helping out in the Happiness Bar.

    I’ve never met a community so willing to help each other out, to teach, to debate, or maybe just lend an ear.

    I’ve been using WP since 2-point-something, but never attended a WordCamp before this year. Now that I’ve been to one, I can’t figure out why I never attended any before.

    It is a great opportunity to meet others, network, learn and start friendships.
