As early as May, Blogie and the fellow people who are working behind the scene for the WordCamp Philippines 2009 announced that they are already doing their tasks to organize the said blogging event. The venue is set, the date is set and all that we’re looking forward now is you, fellow bloggers to participate in this years WordCamp event, even if you’re not a WordPress blogger, be there, and we’ll convert you into one :p
Last year, we had two WordCamps, a Mini WordCamp back here in Davao City whilst the major event was held at the De La Salle College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) in Luzon. The difference from last years event will be, that we are up to pay something in order to attend, this is to avoid trouble with the shirts, fees and to reach expectations that haven’t really been met in the former meet up -of generally, WordPress wannabes-
The price range being discussed right now is from 750 Pesos to 1,500 Pesos, with available discounts for Students (wala bang discounts for Davao attendees? hehe), which is said to include snacks and a WordCamp Shirt (Ate brendel, saan na ang pinapangako mong shirt! hmp! :p)
Smart to lead the air ways
Smart Bro will be sponsoring the internet connection again, and surprisingly, Smart was able to accommodate everyone at Saint Benilde with fast internet connection throughout the day! Let’s hope that the internet will be up and running again like at the WordCamp Philippines last year and that we won’t fall pray to Smart Bro-kens trademark like at the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 2008.
Other important updates..
WordCamp Philippines Merchandise is on its way, in stickers and in other forms, but I really love the stickers as you can see on Lyle Santos‘ Laptop published at Blogie’s blog. I don’t know much about the prices though, but rest assured that we’ll keep you updated about this year’s WordCamp and let’s hope that we’ll all see each other there and be friends.
As early as now, if you don’t mind asking, who’s going to attend it?
