WordCamp Norway is just over a week away (oh, and sold out)

12 Comments

WordCamp Norway, Norway’s first ever WordCamp, is coming up quickly—January 14th in fact. If you have your ticket already, congratulations, you beat the rush. It’s completely sold out. If you weren’t able to get a ticket, don’t fret too much; there is still the possibility that more will become available before the event, at a higher price of course.

If you’re attending and haven’t checked the schedule, here’s a quick rundown. Registration starts at 9 a.m. with the welcome speech at 10 a.m. The first presentation starts at 10:15 a.m. with Automattician Hanni Ross presenting the opening remarks for everyone. After that, the schedule splits into three tracks: one for users, another for designers and developers, and the last for businesses. A Happiness Bar will be open between the presentations where you can ask for help and get answers for your WordPress questions.

Presentation topics include:

  • Plugin 101
  • BuddyPress
  • Responsive Web Design
  • Mobile WP
  • Usability Testing
  • Blogging and WordPress

The day wraps up around 5 p.m. with the keynote by Zé Fontainhas followed by a mingling sessions at 6 p.m. and the after party at 8 p.m. As always, there is more information available on the site.

How many of you are attending WordCamp Norway? What’s the furthest you’ve traveled for a WordCamp?

  1. Wow, this is really cool to see (I am fascinated with Scandinavian countries.) Hopefully there will be pics and video.

  2. Wish I had known this a bit earlier as I certainly would’ve loved going.

    Furthest I have travelled for a WordCamp is an 10 hour drive to WordCamp Portsmouth in the UK. By car.

  3. The furthest I’ve travelled to reach a WordCamp is about 18,000 km. Including time spent in various airports and planes (42 hours), plus about fives hours travelling via car, it will have taken me around 47 hours to get from my home to WordCamp Norway.
