WordCamp Philippines 2009 on September 19

June 10, 2009 | No Comments Yet

The votes are in and a date has been set for WordCamp Philippines: it’s on September 19, the third Saturday of that month. Mark your calendars!

No final word on the mini WordCamp that will be held in Davao, but it will most likely take place a week before.

Finally, the organizers request everyone who will be talking about and tagging the event that they use #wordcamp-ph.

Matt Muellenweg’s favorite WordCamp was in the Philippines

November 11, 2008 | 2 Comments

A WordCamp Buenos Aires particpant writes:

There was a pool between the stage and the public, bats flew all the place, the Mic was a Karaoke machine.

It looks like Matt was referring to the event that took place in Davao, not the big one in Manila. Still, I’m glad Filipinos have made such a great impression on him. First it was the WordCamp Philippines t-shirt design, and now this.

Matt Mullenweg arrives in the Philippines; Final WordCamp reminders

September 5, 2008 | No Comments Yet

Matt Mullenweg touched down in Manila last September 2, then headed to Davao for the mini-WordCamp there. And here’s his very first comment about our country:

In other news, the immigration/customs forms here are sponsored by a booze company. Smartly, though, they use carbon copy so you don’t have to write the exact same thing twice, like you do in the US.

As for WordCamp Philippines itself, the organizers have sent a final email reminder for all the things you’ll need to bring and do at the event.

  • Don’t forget to print out your camper’s pass!
  • Be sure to bring a valid ID.
  • “Less than 400 campers plus several members from mainstream media will converge at the College of Saint Benilde at Taft Avenue on Saturday, September 6. Gates open at 8:00 AM.”
  • If you haven’t registered your gadget, do so already here.
  • Get to College of St. Benilde by going to the Vito Cruz LRT station. The building is right beside it. If you’re bringing a car, it will be difficult to find parking. See the vicinity map for more details.
  • WordCamp t-shirts have been delivered to the campers’ homes.
  • After-party is at mag:net Cafe in Serendra, The Fort, at 9:30 pm. Entrance fee is Php 150.

See you there!

WordCamp Davao

August 4, 2008 | No Comments Yet

Yes, folks. Aside from the upcoming WordCamp Philippines 2008 in Manila, the same organizers of said event have come up with WordCamp Davao on September 4. Matt Mullenweg will also be there.

WordCamp Davao will be a chance for the bloggers down South to learn from the master himself, to find out more about making full use of the power of WordPress. The Davao affair won’t be as comprehensive as the main event in Manila, but it will be something to look forward to just the same! So, fellow Dabawenyos and Mindanaoans, you’re getting what you’ve asked for!

Venue is currently TBA, but it will be held from 6:00 to 10:00pm. Register here.
