This past weekend I attended WordCamp Atlanta, my third WordCamp event to date and definitely not my last. If you’re not familiar with WordCamp you may wonder why I recommend business owners attend, even if they’re merely considering the WordPress platform. The bottom line is that there’s something for everybody at WordCamp. But there is a wealth of knowledge and people that can be helpful to a business owner in particular – especially if you own a small business or are a solopreneur.
While developers do comprise some of the attendee population, business owners, designers and bloggers likely match that number – if they don’t outnumber developers entirely. The types of people who attend vary wildly in age, expertise and culture, yet the environment is one of sharing and collaboration, all in the name of enriching the WordPress community.
If you want to grow your business, use WordPress. If you want to grow your effectiveness with WordPress, attend WordCamp.
