WordCamp developed a new page that makes the status of each new WordCamp public. Called the WordCamp Application Status page, it lists the conference’s name, location, most recent milestone, status, and last update. It even highlights the applicant’s name so it’s easier to get in touch. Thinking about creating a new WordCamp? Check the list first and get involved if one has already been planned.

You can log in, choose the WordCamp you want to update and change the status to everything from “Needs More Info” to “Scheduled.” When a WordCamp is first added, […]
We’ve come a long way since the first WordCamp in 2006 in San Francisco. In 2015, 89 WordCamps were held in 34 countries with over 21,000 attendees total. That’s just WordCamps alone.

Torque asked me to cover WordCamp Miami. I got the email basically as I was getting off my plane in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and instantly, I felt like Johnny Depp’s character in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (minus the copious amount of drugs and Benicio Del Toro as my lawyer). This was only my second WordCamp, and the only other I’d been to was tiny in comparison. So I didn’t know what to expect, let alone what to write about.
