There's only 51 days until WordCamp Victoria 2013, so we are in the final stages of organization.
Over half of the tickets are now sold, so if you haven't purchased your $20 ticket yet, I'd encourage you to register soon.
We are pleased to recognize our new sponsors (and are still accepting more):
You’re part of a tribe of WordPress designers and developers over 10,000 strong, spanning the entire globe. codepoet.com aims to bring the working knowledge and real world strategies of those people into one place, for you to tap into.
For the past few years, WordCamp Victoria participants have received a great deal on registration for Social Media Camp. This year, tickets for Social Media Camp went on sale earlier, as the event is earlier next year (May 6-8, 2013). However, in keeping with tradition, you still get an amazing deal for being a part of WordCamp. Use the discount code WORDCAMP when registering to save 15% between now and December 10th, or 10% after December 10th.
We're excited to welcome back Make Web Not War, too! Here's some of the cool stuff they're up to:
