    Why do they call it a camp? Why not call it a Seminar?

    1. John Chow says:

      Ask WordPress. They’re the ones who call it a Camp.

      1. Abdul says:

        I think its probably because its like a training center you many new people where professionals share their secrets with newbies!

    2. jatt says:

      Maybe because Camp and Seminar is not the same? :mrgreen:

    The lineup seems a bit boring except for the last speaker. Love the title!

    I wish I could go there. The problem is that I live in NY and don’t want to spend money in traveling. Maybe you could come to NY to give us an presentation.

  9. Syed Balkhi says:
