Date and location announced for WordCamp OC 2016

WordCamp Orange County 2016We couldn’t make any announcements until all the ink was dry on the contracts, and now we’re very excited to report that we can’t wait to see you July 9 and 10, 2016 at The Cove at UC Irvine.

Watch this space for when tickets will go on sale. If previous years are any indicator, the camp may sell out very quickly.

One of the many things we’re looking forward to sharing with you is this year’s edition of Plugin-A-Palooza, our camp’s plugin creation contest featuring fabulous prizes furnished by Sucuri Security. We’ve had fun reviewing all the submissions, and we will be announcing the participants very soon.

We’ll keep you apprised of any developments here on our website, so make sure you subscribe to receive our updates. See you in July!
