WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences focusing on everything related to WordPress. Each WordCamp is a little different, but they all share a similar goal: provide an opportunity for people to come together and discuss their common interest in WordPress, learn from each other, network, and have a great time doing it.
WordCamp Ottawa will be held at the University of Ottawa April 27th, 2013. See “Venue” for more information.
Tickets for WordCamp Ottawa will be $23 per person for WordCamp only, or $28 per person for WordCamp and the pre-camp WordPress intro session. Register for WordCamp Ottawa.
Sponsorship is important to fund a WordCamp, it will determine what we can offer in the way of refreshments, lunch, after-party events, T-shirts and WordCamp Ottawa swag. Please see “Become a Sponsor” if you are interested in sponsoring WordCamp Ottawa.
