    We stay away from labeling WordCamps with the country name rather than the city

    Yet the should have been called WordCamp North America was called WordCamp USA.

    :-(

      David, I see where you are coming from. There is nothing wrong with WordCamp Lahore. Being more specific helps capture a better audience and that also could lead to more WordCamps in Pakistan. There are a good deal of WordCamps in the US, it only makes sense to have WCUS by the end of the year.

      I am from Karachi too. I will be attending the event, along with other WordPress folks from Karachi. You should join the WP meetups Pakistan on Facebook or WordPress meetups Lahore on meetup.com. We will be posting regular updates there. You can meet us at WordPress meetup Karachi in February.

    All americans/Europeans should stay away from this event as getting a Pakistani Visa on your passport will automatically add you to FBI’s list of potential high risk travelers and subsequently you could end up on the no fly list. Once you have a Pakistani visa on your passport you will also come under the radar of the NSA where all your communication/Financial transactions will be under NSA scrutiny. With that said, all the best to the WordCamp.

    That’s a great news. I am sure this one is going to be a fantastic event. Being one of the speakers and organisers at WP related events in Lahore, I can only imagine the impact of the WordCamp.

    Congrats everyone!

      Will there be any security arrangements for the foreigners who may come to this event? Any incident by any local hardline islamist group can lead to bad press?

        Suleiman, you need to take it easy. I’ve seen your comment on last post too.

        Too many events take place in Lahore each day. And in how many events do you thinks these Islamists cause trouble? None. That’s right.

        Before you comment any further, I want to let you know that this blog is read by people from all around the word. I feel like you are trying hard to make Pakistan look like a place where all the terrorist activities occur.

          Dear Salman,

          You are correct, but you should also agree that our great nation is not a stable country like america now. Pakistani citizens are regularly involved in terrorist attacks in many parts of the world, we also harbour such groups in Lahore where this event will take place. please note that Osama Laden was the official guest of the Army while eating regularly at the Abotabad army canteen until the americans caught him.

        Yeah there will be strict security arrangements for the foreigners provided by The Government as the initiative is supported by Punjab IT Board.

    I am really feeling glad to hear that that Lahori’s have again showed up their skills, hard-work and efforts to bring something new & unique in their city that will going to help make better professionals. Karachi-ites are also very techie people but I think they are a but puzzled these days in working more in their offices. But hopefully, there would be some techie-ites from Karachi already working on something really big.
