Mark your calendars, folks. WordCamp US 2020 will start on a…Tuesday.
On November 11, the WordCamp US team announced that next year’s event will happen during the middle of the week, from October 27 through October 29. This is a change from the usual three-day weekend event. The time frame puts the event’s days on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The yearly conference will remain in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2020.
Those planning ahead can sign up for updates via the new WordCamp US 2020 site.
Thus far, the switch away from a weekend has been met with generally positive responses via Twitter and Slack. However, some people fear the schedule will not allow them to attend.
The WordCamp US Twitter account cited date availability, Halloween, and giving the weekend back to attendees as the reason behind the change.
