WordCamp Brisbane 2018

It was the third WordCamp that I have attended.  For the first two I was a volunteer and worked for most of the time.  I only attended a few of the presentations.

This time I thought I’d great on volunteering and attend the presentations.  What a good idea!

It was held at the QUT Campus.  Queensland University of Technology, near the centre of the city.  It’s on the edge of the Brisbane River, the beautiful Botanical Gardens, and the old Government House.

The event itself was held in Z Block – with two adjacent lecture theatres.  There was plenty of space between them for chatting, networking, registering and eating.  One of the great things about these events are that there is a low cost $50. It is because of the generosity of sponsors, the food and coffee is covered as well.  As is the “After Party” on the Saturday night which was held in one of the University Bars.

Yes, I went to the After Party – but did not drink any alcohol!!  I had my car in the car park and had to drive to the hotel to George St. I had missed out on a car park at the hotel so I had to go to King George Square Car Park.

WordCamp was great – though I did miss some presentations.  The theatre was too cold!  I had to warm up between presentations and I know that I can see the ones I missed.  Soon, all presentations will be on www.WordPress.tv

It’s FREE to visit and is a wonderful building in lovely gardens.

How do you find out about WordCamps?

There is always information on them at this website.  Click here. 

I think next year I might try to find one in another country too!!  One of the great things about WordCamp is that there are plenty of opportunities to learn more about WordPress.  It’s great to meet so many other folk who also like WordPress.

WordCamp Brisbane’s hashtag is #WCBNE

There was a competition at WordCamp Brisbane 2018, to get a good photo of a “bin chicken”.  This strange bird is unpopular in Queensland as they tend to overtake picnic areas and scavenge in bins – hence the name.  There were some great photos – and this is not one of them.

So, if you’ve never ever been and you use WordPress – check out the site for WordCamps.
