Who should be at WordCamp Portland, ME? You should!

What is WordCamp?

If “camp” brings back memories of cafeteria food and bunk beds, you’ll be relieved to hear that WordCamp Portland, ME is an entirely different kind of camp.

WordCamps are casual conferences focused on all that is WordPress. They’re places to share new ideas, or just sit back and listen to interesting talks. With 75 million sites online powered by WordPress, the WordCamp phenomenon is worldwide.

Still not convinced? If you consider yourself one of the following, it’s time to put WordCamp Portland, ME on your calendar.

At the heart of every great WordPress website is a talented designer. Not only will the art around MECA be inspiring, talks on UX will give you new ideas to bring to your next design.

Entrepreneurs.

Many WordCamp talks are centered around business and ideas. As an entrepreneur, you’ll be right at home. If you’re taking a DIY approach for your website, a few practical WordPress tips can make all the difference.
