WordCamp Melbourne 2011 is a two-day gathering for users of the WordPress blogging platform – from bloggers, designers, developers – anyone who uses or hacks on WordPress in some way.

The event runs over two days on February 26-27 2011, and tickets are only $50 (or $35 if you’re a student).

I highly recommend the conference for all people who are interested in WordPress (both novices and experts).

Please see wcmelb.org for more information.

Thanks to everyone that attended the November WordPress Melbourne User Group meetup.
