Yep, that’s right. According to WordCamp Philippines Website, this would be the first-time that WordCamp event be organized and held in Asia. So if you are wordpress fanatic, a blog enthusiast, developer or curious about blogging and about wordpress, then this event is for you. If you wish to become a sponsor of the said event, just simply go to this link. (Refer to the breakdown of sponsorship packages and the details). As for me, since the amount is somewhat big and beyond my budget, i guess i would just have to volunteer to other available roles -> maybe i would volunteer for publicizing and advertising =). Leading the said conference would be a group of Filipino bloggers based in Mindanao who were also responsible for organizing the successful 1st Mindanao Bloggers Summit held last year. The WordCamp Philippines’ primary objective is
