As you might have heard, the first ever WordCamp US was recently held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Though there have been plenty of local WordCamps in the past, this was the very first one designated for all of the United States.
True to its name, WCUS attracted attendees from all across the country, and even a few from across the globe. The gathering was made up of nearly 2,000 attendees, volunteers, and sponsors, and we here at Woo were delighted to be part of all three groups.
WordCamp US was a blast for those of us who made it. We had an incredible opportunity to sponsor this brand new event, talk to dozens of WooCommerce customers, and hear their amazing stories. A few of us volunteered as event staff, one member of our group spoke about eCommerce, and we all rolled T-shirts until our hands went numb. And some of us even ended up on the local news!
Here’s a closer look at what went on at the inaugural WCUS, why we wanted to be there, and some of our favorite happenings from the weekend.
