When it comes to technology, we're big aficionados of WordPress. So we're ultra stoked for this weekend and the ninth edition of one of our favorite events: WordCamp Montreal. These weekend-long gatherings bring together WordPress enthusiasts, the world’s most popular blogging and CMS software. Developers, designers, web professionals, and bloggers will come together for WordPress-related talks, workshops, and networking.
They printed up a custom event sticker that highlights themes from their website and make for a perfect carry along parting gift for all attendees. This sticker sheet has two peels, one with Wapuu eating poutine gravy covered fries, a Canadian delicacy in Quebec and throughout the country. If you haven't tried poutine, you must. Trust us. It's a standard in greasy spoons in the North East here in America, and throughout Canada. Then there's this year's branded sticker with the graphic design from the website they themed and updated for this year. Two designs for the price of one, which is why you can't beat a sticker sheet for versatility and creativity.
And it's more than just stickers! Each year WordCamp Montreal offers a wide variety of talks and discussions about and around WordPress. Their speakers are passionate, expert volunteers who love to teach about WordPress and publishing on the web.
For this year's event, the schedule is organized into three different rooms with concurrent tracks. The goal of the hardworking organizers is to ensure that any WordPress user, whether they are an experienced WordPress developer or a novice blogger, always has at least one talk going on that will be interesting to them. This is why WordCamps are such awesome spaces to learn and grow: anyone can walk away from a WordCamp with lots of new knowledge and ideas for making the most of WordPress.
