After a hiatus of 10 years, WordCamp is back in Hong Kong!
WordCamps are the official WordPress franchised events. They are noted for being casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress.
Hong Kong WordPress enthusiasts, developers, marketers, and Internet enthusiasts gather to learn from each other and mingle together.
WordCamps come in all different flavors, based on the local communities that produce them, but in general, WordCamps include sessions on how to use WordPress more effectively, beginning plugin and theme development, advanced techniques, security, etc.
WordCamps are attended by people ranging from blogging newbies to professional WordPress developers and consultants, and usually, combine scheduled programming with unconference sessions and other activities. For more information on common WordCamp elements, read about what to expect at a WordCamp.
The first WordCamp was organized in San Francisco by Matt Mullenweg in 2006, and since then local communities around the world have organized hundreds of others. The first WordCamp Hong Kong was held on April 5th, 2009 at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park. This is the second time that WordCamp is held in Hong Kong.
Whilst this is not strictly a “Cybersecurity Conference” there is a talk being given by Henry Dalziel titled: “How to Hack & Defend a WordPress Site” which is clearly vital!
