WordCamp Montclair 2022
GoDaddy is delighted to be a Gold Sponsor of the first WordCamp in America since the pandemic shut down in-person events. We can’t wait to join attendees at Montclair State University in the School of Communications and Media building. This will be the second WordCamp ever hosted in the state of New Jersey.
WordCamps bring together beginners, experienced users, and developers to learn about WordPress.
WordCamp Montclair is led by Laura Bryne, a digital strategist for WebDev Studios, and Mike Auteri, a Senior Lead Software Engineer at Penske Media Corporation (PMC).
No WordCamp would be complete without a custom version of the Wapuu mascot.
WAPUU WEDNESDAY: In honor of this weekend's @WCMontclair, we'd like to introduce you to 'Fuhgeddaboudit Wapuu'. He's kicking back and having a good everything bagel with Taylor ham, egg, and cheese.

Swag and Scenes
What’s a WordPress event without swag?
It’s been a few years since we’ve seen new WordCamp t-shirts, so be on the hunt for these:
Kudos to Co-Lead Organizer @mauteri's 7YO daughter for taking this photo of her Dad, wearing the @WCMontclair 2022 t-shirt. All attendees will be receiving one on Saturday. Cool, huh? #WordCamp #WCMontclair #SWAG pic.twitter.com/yk7mvWfyr3
