Wordcamp Kenya 2011: 8 reasons why you should not miss

Written by

I talked about Wordcamp sometime back here, but now the time is near and it is only three days remaining for the early bird tickets. The early bird tickets  are priced at only Kshs. 3000, thereafter the tickets will go for Ksh.4000. Still not yet convinced here are 8 reasons why you should not miss out on the Wordcamp:

Local Content creation

WordCamp Kenya 2011 has great speakers, who will be putting into perspective what it means to be a content creator, going into details on on the benefits of using wordpress as the platform, Making money though Bake and other channels. It is going to be a great weekend of learning in a relaxed environment. You can’t miss that!

Networking

The term networking and who is who are these days being used loosely, but in Naivasha you will meet developers led by the Founder of WordPress, leading Bloggers, Poets, designers, tweeps and MKZers. If you have ever wanted to meet some of these people in real life, here is your chance.

Fun Weekend

Ordinarily you might find yourself too busy to have a little bit of time for yourself.  WordCamp Kenya 2011 give you a chance to learn, network and have fun. Swimming pool, lake, and trails, name it. In other words you can try your hand in fishing, swimming, canoeing, or biking.

Developers, designers and users will come together for talks and workshops related to WordPress and to publishing on the web, and to network.

Data.

For the nijnjas who are online 24/7, you are catered for too. Safaricom will provide great data connection right from the time you enter the bus to the time you come back in Nairobi. Yes, the bus will be wired and much better at the camp. On top of that Kshs. 500 Airtime from Safaricom Ltd for mobile data. You will truly have a working weekend

Love for Nature:

Do you love nature….If you are like me, then you can be assured that Naivasha has it all when comes to magnificent outdoors.. Yeah, i know you know, book your ticket now..

Entertainment Galore

I can’t even describe this one..night camp with a fireside poetry session, it is entertainment in a unique way. Come, meet and interact with some the best poets we have around. And they are ready to entertain you on that day. You simply can’t make this one up…

Great Experience at affordable cost
