WordCamp to be held in Melbourne next year

WordCamp, a user-oriented conference devoted to the WordPress content management system, will be held in Melbourne on April 27 and 28, 2013.

The last such camp to be held in Melbourne was in 2011. Given the popularity of the software, which is open source, there are conferences held around the world under the same name.

Wordcamp Melbourne 2013 will see a broad range of topics covered by a number of speakers.

The programme is being devised to show the way in which many different uses - content management,  blogging, e-commerce, community building,and beyond - can all be achieved using WordPress.

The conference will be held at the RMIT campus in the heart of Melbourne.

Proposals for talks can submitted here and sponsors can indicate their interest here. Ticket sales will be announced in coming weeks.
