FAQ: 3 Reasons Why WordCamp is One Day

WordCamp Birmingham FAQ

For the first time since its inception in 2008, WordCamp Birmingham is one day  – Saturday, Aug. 16. (Hint, hint: Click the date for ticket information!)

The short (and most obvious) answer for this question is, “It’s cheaper!” But it goes a bit deeper than that.

The organizers took feedback from the 2013 surveys very seriously, so here are a few more reasons why we’re just doing a one-day camp this year.

  • Sunday attendance was very small. We noticed it and other Campers did as well.
  • Out-of-town folks will have a lot more breathing room. Instead of having to rush home right after Sunday sessions, or miss them entirely, they have a full day to get back home.
  • No after-party hangover! Seriously. One of the attendees noted it was tough to go to an 8 a.m. Sunday session after going to our afterparty on Saturday.

Changing WordCamp to a one-day event  means fewer sessions, but it will be a simpler and better experience for everyone this year. (As if previous years could be topped!)

    1. Thank you so much! We are really excited too. I don’t have specifics on when the schedule will be released, but we are finalizing speakers this coming week.
