About WordCamp Halifax

WordCamps are casual, volunteer organized conferences that focus on WordPress. Each WordCamp is a bit different, but all share a similar goal: to provide an accessible opportunity for people to come together and discuss WordPress, learn from each other, network and have a great time doing it!

A successful WordCamp depends on volunteers.

Event Date

Saturday, May 27 will prove to be a day of learning and community. With three informative tracks from 8:00am to 5:00pm. 45 minute sessions in three key areas will be available. See our schedule for more information.


We’re excited to be holding three informative tracks at the Marion McCain Arts and Science Building, Dalhousie University. Detailed venue information can be found here.


Tickets are $25 per person, which includes lunch, snacks and an afterparty with… more snacks!

Naturally, all-day coffee will be provided. Lunch will be served for WordCamp Halifax 2017 attendees and is included in the ticket price! Converse with fellow goers in the building’s lobby or outside in the private courtyard while you munch.


Sponsorship is an important source of WordCamp funding. It helps determine what we can offer in the way of refreshments, lunch, after-event networking, and WordCamp Halifax swag. Please consider becoming a sponsor of WordCamp Halifax 2017.

Speakers, topics

Speakers and topics have been chosen to match the knowledge, experience and skills of:

  • Content Creators, who want to learn how to publish content on a WordPress site
  • Site Creators, who want to learn more complex tasks but aren’t designers or developers
  • Code Creators, designers or developers who want to learn about topics such as site set-up, theme design, plugin development, development best practices and more

Happiness Bar

The Happiness Bar is a special activity at WordCamp where local and visiting WordPress experts offer complimentary help and advice to attendees who come to the Bar with questions.
