WPCampus 2016 – A WordPress Event Focused on Higher Education

This past weekend SiteLock sponsored and attended a different kind of WordPress event. WPCampus was held at The University of South Florida Manatee-Sarasota in Sarasota, Florida. Not only was this location unique, but so was this conference.

WPCampus is another example of WordPress-focused events that are more targeted to a specific niche. In this case, web professionals, educators and other people dedicated to the confluence of WordPress in higher education.

WordCamp Orange County 2016 – To Infinity and Beyond

Starship WordCamp Orange County began its 48-hour voyage to boldly go where no WordCamp has gone before on July 9. The space-themed #WCOC was hosted in the Applied Innovation compound of the University of California’s Irvine campus. The event took place upstairs in an area called “The Cove,” which also contains what appeared to be various upstart companies’ offices as well as an impressive array of big-screen displays in most conference rooms. There were four tracks to host the talks, which were also themed in title, The Nebula, The Comet, The Dwarf Star and The Asteroid Field.

At 2,200 attendees, WordCamp Europe (#WCEU) 2016 was officially the largest WordCamp ever held. Tickets sold out over six months in advance, prompting organizers to quickly allocate additional tickets and arrange additional presentation space.

WCEU 2016 was hosted in the MuseumsQuartier of beautiful Vienna, consisting of three very large tracks and the sponsor hall, where the SiteLock booth could be found front and center. From a total 220 applicants, 75 speakers were selected to present at WCEU on subjects ranging from the REST API to figuratively “herding cats.”

WordCamp Kansas City 2016 – Part of the Family

My last WordCamp for Spring 2016 was the in the “BBQ Capital of the World,” Kansas City, Missouri (#WCKC). WordCamp Kansas City is one of the few WordCamps that spans a three-day period, starting Friday morning. We jumped straight into sessions by noon on Friday and kept it going strong all the way through Sunday afternoon, with a cozy afterparty-style meet-up to conclude each day. Both the Friday and Saturday sessions took place at the Kauffman Conference Center, while Sunday’s sessions were held at the Sprint Accelerator workspace.
