It is organized in many countries around the world. All WordPress developers and users can participate in WordCamp.
What about WordCamp funding?
This conference is based on volunteering . This means that the organizers, moderators, speakers and other volunteers have no financial reward. Therefore, let us appreciate these people who devote their time and energy to building and supporting the community.
The budget is approved and controlled by the Headquarters . Most of the resources come from sponsors, a smaller portion from ticket sales. The profit from ticket sales alone would not cover the costs of premises, equipment, refreshments, after-parties, etc. Therefore, let us also be grateful to the sponsor.
WordCamp usually has a so-called Contributor Day. It is usually the day before or after the conference itself. During Contributor Day, you can directly participate in WordPress creation, translation and other support of the local community.
In Slovakia, we mostly deal with Slovak translation of WordPress and plugins, meetings in selected cities and other things that contribute to the improvement and dissemination of WordPress in Slovakia.
