Need even more WordCamp? Head to Kenya this weekend


In the first ever WordCamp for East & Central Africa, WordCamp Kenya 2011 will be taking place this weekend (the 12th and 13th) at Crayfish Camp, Naivasha. The organizers described Naivasha as “one of the most wonderful bird haven in the world,” which may also be the first time a WordCamp has been held at that type of venue.

If you want to attend, tickets can still be purchased at a highly affordable $40. There are fifteen speakers lined up with a range of different sessions. There’s no word yet on whether they will be recorded, though I hope so as I’d like to hear some of them. David Mugo, one of the organisers, has highlighted 7 reasons why he thinks you should attend WordCamp Kenya:

  1. All about WordPress
  2. It is Local First
  3. It will be fun!
  4. It is affordable!
  5. A great Learning Experience
  6. An Automattic Experience
  7. It’s Cool and Trendy

So, usually we will ask who’s attending the WordCamps we’re reporting on, but in this case we really want to know. If you’re attending the first ever WordCamp Kenya this weekend, you absolutely must comment below and tell us about it.
