Wapuu Headed to a Packed House at Inaugural DC WordCamp

WordCampDC-2017-PEELS

Our Nation's Capital will hold its first-ever edition of WordCamp DC, a inspiration-filled weekend where the WordPress community will gather for three days at the historic Carnegie Library. It's going to be a packed house, as the event has already sold out, which is in an indicator of how popular WordPress is in the District of Columbia.

Sticker Sheet Design


They ordered up a super fun sticker sheet with three different Wapuu peels, a highly detailed illustration of the Carnegie Library, where the event is being held, a diamond shaped sticker of the District of Columbia with a script highlighting the "Inaugural" edition, and then an orange-and-blue event name brand peel off. It's on a light pastel colored background so all of the Wapuus in yellow really pop, as do the navy blue and orange themed peels.

More about WordCamp DC


The schedule is also loaded, with three tracks over three days featuring a variety of sessions, from WordPress theming and running federal websites to WordPress for political campaigns. There is always so much to learn and new people to meet at a WordCamp, and since it's community-run, the energy is good.

Shoutouts for Organizers, Sponsors and Venue


We are proud to be grouped with some other great sponsors in the WordPress community, and you should check out their services. We truly enjoy sponsoring these WordCamp event all around the world.

We want to thank all of the organizing team for their hard work, and we wish attendees a productive and educational weekend.

Lastly, we certainly wanted to give a shout out to the venue: Wow! Being in DC is all about the history and the architecture, so having a setting that dates back to 1903 when Teddy Roosevelt dedicated the building. It's right in Mount Vernon Square north of the National Mall and Chinatown. It was the first Carnegie library in DC (there are now four) and the first public library in the District. There's some fun things to see and do in the building, and we hope folks that attend spend some time soaking in the atmosphere of the area.
