November is quickly turning into one of the biggest months for WordCamps this year. WordCamp Philly has already passed, and it will be followed by WordCamp Caguas, WordCamp Kenya, WordCamp Detroit, WordCamp Richmond, and WordCamp Denmark all starting on the same day (Nov. 12)! Closing out the month, we have WordCamp Azerbaijan (Nov. 13), WordCamp Edmonton (Nov. 18), WordCamp Omaha (Nov. 18), WordCamp Singapore (Nov. 19), WordCamp Paris (Nov. 25), WordCamp Madrid (Nov. 26), and WordCamp Tokyo (Nov. 27).
