WordCamp conferences have gone virtual since 2020, as a result
of the pandemic. Changing the model for networking, information

Central America is growing into an area of technological growth,
thought leadership in technology and influence not just on a local
scale, it is recognized regionally and internationally. Many people
do not know the nations of Central America, they include Belize,

What is WordPress? WP is a way to create personal website or blogs.
WordPress powers over 40% of all the websites on the Internet.
More than one in four websites visited are likely powered by
WordPress. The global influence and exposure to WordPress provides
a chance that anyone can build a web site for business, pleasure, education,
research, public, civic, creativity, innovation and building communities.
In corresponding to the WordPress community are WordCamp conferences.
WordCamps are conferences that are held locally, nationally and as can be
seen they are held internationally as the upcoming first of its kind WordCamp
Central America held in Nicaragua and also the first of its kind Kids Camp
celebrating “Unity” as the theme of the conference.
WC focuses on everything WordPress and provides a friendly, welcoming,
informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress

Some of the wonderful things about WC conferences is everyone from the
casual user, to core developers, graphic designers, content creators,
bloggers, educators, artists, programmers, entrepreneurial and business
people participate. They share ideas, collaborate and get to know each other.
During WordCamp (WC) conferences people are developing new
business and technology ideas. Forming collaborations in web development,
training opportunities and even making dreams come true for individuals to
start their own technology businesses. Central America is growing into a
new digital hub of thought leaders and digital innovators.
The encouragement and inspiration of the involvement for youth, teens and
young adults opens doors for them to be a part of WordPress, WordCamp
and Kids Camp areas.
