WordCamp is a community-organized event focused on all things WordPress, a popular CMS (content management system) that now powers 25% of the web. WordCamps are not fancy, high-priced conferences with full lineups of industry-famous speakers. Instead, they provide relevant information to WordPress users at an affordable price and encourage the local community to be part of the speaker lineup.
Wordcamps are a great way to get to know other WordPress users in the local community and find out how you can get involved in your local WordPress meetup group. Looking for a project collaborator? WordCamp is a great place to be.
The focus of each WordCamp is different. This year, WordCamp Albuquerque is specifically targeted towards intermediate WordPress users who have a basic understanding of WordPress and want to dig a little deeper into what is available to help them build amazing websites.
