Community Roundup Week Ending March 17
Events are Back
WordCamps, summits, and other conferences are back! In the last few years the roster of WordCamps on WordCamp.org have been sparse, to say the least. As of today there are eighteen upcoming WordCamps on the schedule, and more are in the beginning planning stages. And other events like YoastCon offer in-person events, too.
In addition to official WordCamps, online summits like the recent Pagebuilder Summit and Kadence Amplify, and the upcoming Atarim Summit continue to reach niche audiences online and encompass anyone anywhere they have a wifi connection.
I, for one, am pleased that online events continue in a post-lockdown world. Not everyone is able to travel to in-person events, or feels that it's safe enough at this point. We continue to hear of COVID cases following in-person events, and for some, that itself is reason enough to stay home.
If you have upcoming events (online or otherwise), we'd love to hear about them. DM Michelle on Twitter or in Slack (or via email) and let us know!
