It was April 28th, 2013 around 5pm and I was sitting in a lecture theatre at RMIT University Melbourne.

WordCamp Melbourne 2013 had just finished.  A few of us, including the rather exhausted looking organisers, were relaxing at the end of the conference while the buzz of people heading home and things being packed up surrounded us.

It was a great weekend – fantastic even!  I wanted more.

So, leaning forward I asked the organisers if they were planning on organising a WordCamp in Sydney for the following year.

Eyes flicked back and forth between them, an agreeing non-verbal communication and an answer came back.

No, but it sounds like you just volunteered!“.  Thanks Pete and Dee.

So, zoom forward a year and a bit and in three weeks time WordCamp Sydney 2014 will happen.

Including myself, the organising team are:

Where and When?

WordCamp Sydney 2014 will be at the University of Technology in Sydney (UTS) on September 27 & 28.

Two full days of presentations and networking on all things WordPress.

We have two streams of talks; one for users/bloggers and one for developers/tech.

The official website is http://2014.sydney.wordcamp.org/ and you can get in touch with us on Twitter and Facebook.  The schedule is also on Lanyard.

It’s not too late to buy a ticket or help with sponsoring the event.

Once the event is finished I may just write a post letting you all know what it’s like to organise a WordCamp.

See you there!
