Just a quick post to remind you that WordCampUK is scheduled for the weekend of 17-18 July 2010. This will be the third year for the annual conference for WordPress publishers, designers and developers based in the United Kingdom (and of-course, any international visitors are more than welcome if they want to drop in!).

The venue this year is Manchester Metropolitan University Business School – who have offered substantial financial support to the event. There is some really interesting stuff going on behind the scenes this year, including the formulation of the official organisation and core organisational committee (of-which I’m part of), amongst other things.

I am also personally relaunching the WordCamp Awards (details in discussion), along with the usual support I offer WordCamp – namely the press pack and any other little bits and pieces of design work required! I also intend to present again at the conference and because I feel the conference has been lacking on design/template design I aim to cover this subject in one form or another in my presentation.

Make sure you get the date in your diaries – there will be reduced price early bird tickets available soon, along with some great sponsorship opportunities. So keep an eye on the official WordCampUK website, or get involved by joining the WordCampUK mailing list where a-lot of background stuff gets discussed!

If you are involved with WordPress at any level – be it developer, designer or even just a publisher, you really can’t afford to miss this conference! It’s a great chance to mingle with like-minded people and I have personally forged some great links with other developers and have got a-lot from this conference over the last couple of years – see you there!
