I was notified this morning that WordCamp New Zealand will be taking place this year on the 8th and 9th of August. The event will take place in the city of Wellington and will feature a keynote presentation from Matt Mullenweg. However, there will also be plenty of other hands-on sessions focused on the WordPress platform and the community around it. To be honest, these hands-on sessions are something WordCamps seem to be lacking.
Ticket Registration will be opening soon to the general public. If you have any questions, be it about speaking or general inquiries, feel free to get in touch with the organizers via their contact form.
