WordCamp Chicago

WordCamp Chicago: WordCamp is coming to Chicago in 2009! Since I am so close (Toledo), I would love to attend. I know that Jeff is planning to be there as well. Past WordCamps that I have attended have always turned out to be fun events that are a great place to meet people, learn about the latest goings on in the WordPress world, generate and fan new ideas and make new connections within the WordPress community.

WordCamp Chicago is being organized by Lisa Sabin-Wilson, Brian Gardner, Wendy Piersall and Cory Miller. The details of this WordCamp are up in the air but the organizers are looking for sponsors, attendees, speakers and any other help that you can provide. If you are a WordPress enthusiast, have never been to a WordCamp before and are from the Chicagoland area, this is your chance.

Are you going?

    Holy crap, that is an all star lineup of organizers heh. Hmm, it could be possible that I reach three WordCamps in 2009 rather than 1 or 2.

    Nice, I’m from Chicago and would love to attend but I need to know the date their aiming for? Exciting times, Wordcamp Chicago- that caught my attention! :) I’m only a short hour and half away. If it’s not during a semester, I’ll be there. Thanks

    I’m in the Chicago area and I really hope I can go. I have a big exam in mid-June, so as long as it’s not in the middle of that, I’m there!

    I have been exited about WordCamp Chicago and have been waiting for the details. Hopefully they’ll have the dates ironed out soon.

    I live up in Milwaukee, but I am sure one of my WordPress junkies and I could make it. I will need to know when it is, but I have been waiting for a WordCamp Milwaukee or WordCamp Chicago for awhile now! Seems I got my wish. hehe

    I’ve been hoping to see Chi on the list, I’ll be there! (and bring the friend who got me hooked on wp)

    Would absolutely love to attend WordCamp Chicago! I live in the city so it would be very convenient :)

    I’m in Aurora, and have been waiting for WC to come to the Windy City. Any idea as to when it’ll be here other than next year? The site (which, along with its Twitter page, hasn’t been updated since October) appears to be leaning towards a June 2009 date, but has anyone actually HEARD anything?

    Hey Mark, thanks for the post on this – ironically enough, I have been trying to work out more details this week on the venue, but we are expecting a great turnout. At this point, the dates for WordCamp Chicago are Saturday June 6th and Sunday morning June 7th – I’ve confirmed with Maya at Automattic that Matt Mullenweg will be attending and speaking at the event, so I doubt the dates will change. Stay tuned as the site should be updated with more info and registration very soon!

    Thanks for the update, Brian. :)

    I’m looking froward to the announcement date!

    Bring it back to Chicago! I’m in Niles, Michigan and would much rather make this trip than the one to NYC
