Recently I’ve been talking with a few people about the idea of a WordCamp ( WordPress conference ) in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. This isn’t something that one person can do alone though, so I’m putting out the call for help and feed back. If you are interested in helping make this happen we’ll be getting together for a planning meeting:
Applebee's in Draper 105 E 12300 S Draper, Utah 84020 Thursday 10 April 2008 @ 6:30pm Upcoming Event Page
One of the reasons we chose that Applebee’s location is because they have free WiFi, so feel free to bring your laptops.
In addition to people helping, I want to hear from Utah WordPress users about what they’d like to see in a WordCamp. Any thoughts on potential locations (in the greater SLC area), sponsors, topics and speakers? If you are interested in presenting let me know. And if you are interested in sponsoring WordCamp Utah, then I really, really want you to contact me :-)
First order of business is to lock in a date and location, so that everyone can make plans.
Also, a big thanks to Thom Allen for being willing to get involved and push me to get moving on this.
