Get your ticket now.

WordCamp is about WordPress — open source software that now powers more than one quarter of all the websites on earth — but it’s also about bringing people together.

We get the chance to learn from one another, to catch up with old friends, to make new friends, and to connect as a community.

2016 WordCamp Basics

reynoldsWordCamp Fayetteville will take place from July 22-24, at the Donald W. Reynolds Center for Enterprise Development on the University of Arkansas campus and various locations in Fayetteville.

Everyone is welcome! If you use WordPress, build with WordPress, or just wonder about WordPress, you’ll enjoy attending. If you want to reach out to the Northwest Arkansas tech and business communities, you’re welcome to sponsor.

So What’s WordCamp?

A WordCamp is an informal community-based conference where people who love and use WordPress can get together for fun and learning. Find answers to questions, share your great ideas, get refreshed and inspired, and meet new people. No sleeping bags required.

What Will You Learn?

This year we are not dividing the sessions into tracks. We’ve noticed that participants move from one track to another, and we’re planning to encourage new speakers and new topics. We’ll be adding to the information here at the website as we firm up the schedule.

We’re sure that you’ll learn a lot! Ready to speak? Please submit your topic.

This site is where all the information will be for WordCamp Fayetteville 2016. As we get ready for July 22, you’ll see the schedule, speakers, and sponsors here, and you’ll also be able to buy tickets here. Come back often!


Speakers are still sending us information and we’ll have a schedule for Saturday up soon.
