WordCamp Birmingham is coming with full southern flare January 14th and 15th. Sara Cannon is the main organizer of the event, which will consist of a full Saturday session and a Sunday workshop. The theme of this year’s camp is WP Yall, and you can even go to wpyall.com for an easy to remember short URL that redirects visitors to the official 2012 Birmingham WordCamp central page.
The first round of speakers has been announced for WordCamp Birmingham, and you’ll be able to hear from outstanding members of the WordPress community such as Michael Fields, Mike Schinkel, Tammy Hart, and Samual “Otto” Wood, to name a few. If you’re excited about coming down to maybe-less-cold-than-where-you-live Alabama in January, we look forward to having you. This will be my first ever WordCamp (shamefully), and I couldn’t be more thrilled to take part.
Registration is open now, and costs only $35 for a weekend pass. WordCamp Birmingham is also looking for additional sponsorships to help put on the event, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to be the first ever (that I know of) Kryptonite sponsor?
I’m happy to say WPCandy will be represented in Birmingham, via myself, and even Editor-in-Chief Ryan Imel if I can get him away from snowy Fort Wayne for a weekend. So go sign up and come on down to Birmingham to talk WordPress and hang out with some of the WPCandy team in January. It’s going to be awesome.
