Care to Join Us at WordCamp Ann Arbor?

If you are using WordPress, LearnDash, or both then why not join us at WordCamp Ann Arbor?

One thing is for sure: LearnDash wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for WordPress.

But this is beyond just the software. WordPress is powerful because of the community.

Tens of thousands of people willingly donate their time and skills to further the WordPress project, continually refining and improving the the content management system that is behind nearly 29% of all sites on the internet.

Whether you have been using WordPress for years or you are just starting out, one of the best ways to get involved in the community is by attending a WordCamp. These are one to two day conferences dedicated to all things WordPress (from development, design, business, and more)… but this isn’t your typical conference.

It’s casual.

It’s friendly.

It’s informative.

And you will learn something.

Why You Should Come to WordCamp Ann Arbor on October 13-14th

Seeing as we are based out of Ann Arbor this is one WordCamp that we attend every year.  So yes, there is a bias – but I believe that this WordCamp is one of the best! 🙂

First, the conference isn’t extremely large which makes for a intimate environment where it’s easy to meet new people, network, and have interesting conversations. Don’t get me wrong, the large WordCamps are great too. However, if this is your first time attending then I think you will appreciate how accessible the event is in Ann Arbor.

Despite being a medium-sized WordCamp, Ann Arbor provides you a “big city” experience.

It’s not the biggest city in the world with a population of about 120,000, but it’s big enough to offer some great experiences. From entertainment to restaurants Ann Arbor is a great town for a weekend getaway with plenty to do outside of the conference itself.

All that said, the most important reason you should attend WordCamp Ann Arbor is because this incredibly well-run event attracts some outstanding speakers.

Last year the keynote speaker was Cory Miller, founder and CEO of iThemes.

This year the keynote speaker is John James Jacoby, the man behind projects like bbPress and BuddyPress. But he’s more than the lead dev for those solutions, he is one of the most trusted developers in the entire WordPress community – and he’ll be presenting in Ann Arbor.
