What is WordCamp?
Uhm, you are not a real WordPress user unless you know, or at least have heard, about it. Copying from WordCamp official website, WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. Since the first WordCamp was organized in San Francisco by Matt Mullenweg in 2006, local communities around the world have organized over a hundred WordCamps. This is not surprising if we recall that WordPress powers over 25 million sites on the web nowadays.
We love WordPress so much as well. Without WordPress, this Tokokoo –your WordPress ecommerce themes provider- would never exist. So, through this sponsorship, we hope we can give back a little to WordPress communities around the world. Okay, maybe I should have used ‘in Cape Town’ instead of ‘around the world’.
