WordCamp Fayetteville 2017 – July 21-23

WordCamp is about WordPress — open source software that now powers 28% of all the websites on earth — but it’s also about bringing people together.

We get the chance to learn from one another, to catch up with old friends, to make new friends, and to connect as a community. From the party on Friday July 21, through the Saturday sessions, to the Sunday Jam Session, WordCamp Fayetteville is an opportunity for growth and learning. Also fun.

So What’s WordCamp?

A WordCamp is an informal community-based conference where people who love and use WordPress can get together for fun and learning. Find answers to questions, share your great ideas, get refreshed and inspired, and meet new people. No sleeping bags required.

What Will You Learn?

We have sessions for beginners, bloggers, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and WordPress community!

You’ll also hear WordCampers say that they learn a lot in the hallways. That is, you can get a lot out of conversations with other WordCampers.
