Description of WordCamp Sacramento 2018, the fourth annual two-day conference for users and fans of WordPress – a popular website platform.
In mid-September I spent two enjoyable days with 402 other attendees at WordCamp Sacramento 2018. The conference was held at the Sacramento Convention Center. Last year had been the first time I attended a WordCamp – and I was looking forward to another great learning experience.

The theme of the conference this year was Code, Content, Community, Creativity, Collaboration. After attending WordCamp Sacramento 2017 last year, as well as a number of Sacramento WordPress meetups in between, I have to say that the theme was spot-on. I have found the WordPress community to be very welcoming – and always helpful.
WordCamp Sacramento is run by volunteers – and all the speakers likewise volunteer their expertise. Over the course of the two-day weekend different sessions were held simultaneously in three rooms – a total of 45.
I had reviewed the program in advance and read the description of the subject matter in order to determine those topics of most interest. I was very glad that WordCamp Sacramento again offered a “Beginner Track” – with speakers covering the basics.
In some cases the decision of what session to attend was very easy – two of the three sessions were very technical and of interest to software developers, etc. In other instances I was interested in two of the three – and had to make a decision.
The format of Wordcamp Sacramento works because the volunteers religiously keep to the time schedule, so the movement of attendees from room to room is very orderly.
Like last year, the registration fee was only $40. Registration included lunch on Saturday (a choice of four different food trucks, each of which offered vegan and vegetarian options), a networking reception after the last session the first day, a WordCamp Sacramento 2018 tee shirt, and drinks and snacks throughout both days. What a great deal! I personally learned a lot.
If you have or manage a WordPress website I highly recommend you keep an eye out for WordCamp Sacramento 2019.
