If you love WordPress or want to get involved with WordPress, it’s a great opportunity to learn more and interact with the local WordPress community.

Why Web & Graphic Designers should attend the Auckland WordCamp
This years focus will be helping local web/graphic designers and their business clients. Expert developers will also be attending, often as key speakers, showing us how much WordPress has evolved from a blogging system in 2003, to the world’s most popular CMS application. Today it allows designers, IT and marketing staff to create beautiful, easily-managed websites in less time (and cost) than other options (like Joomla, Drupal etc). And inherently get their clients more traffic too. The freedom and control that WordPress provides designers and users is truly astounding.
As well as professional designers utilising WordPress for the building of unique, high-traffic business websites, there are new entry-level options too for home businesses, non-profits and sports clubs. Slick sites that can be quickly established and easily maintained, saving thousands.
