WordCamp Philippines Is On

May 22nd, 2008

It’s recently been confirmed that the first WordCamp in the Philippines will be taking place on October 25, 2008 September 6, 2008 in Manila. The event is being put together by the same group of people who were responsible for the Mindanao Bloggers Summit. The WordCamp event plans on taking two tracks. One for technical sessions with the other concentrating on beginners. Asides from the social gathering of WordPress enthusiasts, WordCamp Philippines is also planning to hold an “Install-Fest” where everyone will be encouraged to bring their laptops or desktops to the event where a guided tour of installing to the latest version will done along with, installing the most important plugins, and for demonstrations on how to tweak WP themes.

Robillo has stated that :

“Beyond the technical know-how that we wish to impart to participants, doing WordCamp in the Philippines will mean deeper awareness of blogging as an effective medium of communication and advocacy,”

Wow, it sounds like WordCamp Philippines is going to be an awesome event.

    But. I don’t know if I can even attend :(
    I have hoped that the people behind the scene of the bloggers summit would create a WordCamp in Mindanao, Davao specifically :(
    Manila is quiet far.
    It’s time to rack up some dollars from review earnings :D
