WordCamps are fun, casual, locally organised conferences covering everything related to WordPress, and Lagos City has one of the most vibrant WordPress communities in West Africa. This is our 5th Year since we started a WordPress community and our second time organising a WordCamp. Our theme for this WordCamp is “Uplifting Local Communities”.
Our meetup attendee numbers have grown from 147 in 2016 to 1500+ in 2018. Our first WordCamp recorded a total number of 325 attendees. We hold monthly meetups on diverse WordPress and related topics and we are expanding to other areas in Lagos. We also just held our 1st annual charity do_action hackathon on July 14th 2018 where we built 5 useful websites for 5 non-profit organisations doing amazing work in and around Lagos.
WordCampers come to Lagos to network, learn, connect, and have fun! Everyone from beginners, casual users to WordPress professionals, marketers, designers, developers and WordPress core contributors participate to share ideas, knowledge and information. Our location is in the heart of Lagos State, and it intrigues and attracts speakers and attendees from different parts of Lagos, across the country and even the world.
We need you to make WordCamp Lagos even more enjoyable in 2019! Stay tuned and subscribe for updates, we look forward to welcoming you there.
