You’re probably wondering why there is a page in English on the site of a WordCamp in Lisbon, Portugal. Let us explain:
- Lisbon is a very cosmopolitan european city, where most, if not all, WordPress enthusiasts are fluent in (at least) English. Last year’s WordCamp had a dozens of attendees from other countries, not to mention speakers (thank you Drew Strojny, Scott Berkun and Isaac Keyet) and sponsors (thank you WangGuard, Woo Themes, GetShopped, VaultPress, Polldaddy and Merchsupply.com).
- In keeping with the portuguese sea-faring tradition, it is also the home of a very active WordPress community, with very strong ties to users, designers and developers all around the world, not to mention the fact that it is also the home of our very own CodePoet.
- We like to think that the city is one of the places in Europe which you simply must visit. Don’t take our word for it, by all means, take a peak at what the New York Times has to say about Lisbon.
In short: we’d love to have you come and attend, sponsor and possibly speak at WordCamp Lisbon 2012, scheduled for late September.
You are likely already familiar with WordCamps and with how exhilarating they can be. We can safely guarantee that you’ll have a good time, meet extraordinary people, eat amazing food and all in all experience an unique city.
