When is WordCamp Kansas City?
WordCamp Kansas City 2017 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 28-29!
Cool. Where is it taking place?
We have an active monthly Meetup-based community here in Kansas City that gathers folks from all around the metro area towards a single goal: building a local community based on WordPress in all its uses. We feature local WordPress luminaries, each of whom contributes a talk, demonstration, or code for all to share and benefit from. So the question arises: why is “WordCamp Kansas City” necessary?
What is WordCamp KC?
WordCamp Kansas City is an annual conference focused on free and open source software WordPress, as well as blogging, content distribution, social media, entrepreneurship and more.
The WordPress platform is used to build nearly 25% of all websites on the internet today and many estimates suggest that more than 50% of small business websites are built with WordPress.
WordCamp Kansas City gathers developers and users of WordPress as well as managers and decision-makers from around the mid-west to discuss new directions, exciting implementations, creation and distribution of engaging content, and business practices.
We anticipate a great audience for WordCamp Kansas City with as many as 300 attendees, across the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday event. We have an experienced organizing committee and have teamed with Kauffman Foundation Conference Center to provide a fantastic venue and conference-going experience. In addition to the well established core audience for WordPress in the Kansas City and surrounding area, we will have a strong marketing program and specific program content to reach out to newcomers to WordPress community.
