WordCamp Boston is an annual conference celebrating WordPress, the open source software that powers over 28% of the internet. We’ll have lecture-style sessions, panels, and workshops about WordPress and the tech industry. If sitting in talks all day isn’t your thing, we’ll also have an open area where you can chat with other WordPress users, and a volunteer-staffed help desk for your questions.
