WordCamp UK in Manchester

NOTE: This was posted on the MWUG mailing list by Mike a few days ago. I am posting it here again for anyone not on the mailing list.

In case you hadn’t heard, WordCamp UK is coming to Manchester. The unconference  is being held on the weekend of July 17th and 18th at the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School.

Tickets are on sale now, and all ticket sales end at 1100 (am) on Sunday 11 July 2010. That’s £30 for two full days of meeting fellow WordPress users, publishers, designers, and developers.

There are four simultaneous tracks this year: General & user, Specialist & developer, Miscellaneous & spontaneous and a ‘Genius Bar’ (a range of WordPress experts available to advice attendees on a one-to-one basis).

Mike be presenting on Sunday. He’ll probably hang around the Genius bar at times too.

I’ll be taking part on the WordHack sessions and also help Shaun with co-ordination. If you’re interested in taking part in this year’s WordHack add your project idea.

Don’t worry you don’t need technical expertise to suggest an idea. If you run a WordPress site/blog but don’t know how to solve a business problem you should suggest it.

It will be a great weekend, if you are a WordPress user, developer, or designer, or are just considering using WordPress you should come along.

This user group is helping to organise the unofficial social on the Friday night before the event for people who are arriving a day early.

We look forward to seeing you there.
