WordCamps: The Next Generation

The official WordPress Community blog recently published a post titled “The Next Generation of WordCamps,” outlining the future of in-person WordPress conferences in the post-pandemic world. The successful transition of WordCamps from in-person to virtual during the pandemic has paved the way for hybrid event formats featuring both virtual and in-person components. This new initiative aims to make WordCamps more accessible and attractive to a broader audience. Additionally, the WP Community plans to introduce an open registration system and event management tools to streamline the process of organizing WordCamps. By reducing administrative burdens and eliminating redundant processes, organizers will have more time to focus on creating engaging and valuable events for attendees. The post concludes by encouraging community members interested in hosting a WordCamp to participate in this initiative, emphasizing the importance of community participation in making these events successful.
