The thing that makes WordCamp truly great is not just the awesome content, but the members of the community who you will meet during the event. To help you along your way, we have put together a game of WordCamp bingo for you to enjoy, and get you to meet and chat to as many people as possible over the course of the conference.
What you need
- A twitter account
- A smart phone with a camera
How it works
Throughout the whole of the conference’s events (both days as well as the after party) you are charged with ‘filling your bingo card’ with the names and faces of people who each fit the bill of the card spaces below.
‘Filling your card’ consists of taking pictures of the people you meet who fit each criteria and tweeting that picture, with the following information to your Twitter account:
- The two hashtags: #wcct #bingo
- The relevant number on the ‘card’ (1-12)
- The name of the person you’ve just met and photographed
The Bingo card:
In case you can’t see the image correctly, here are the 12 photos you need to collect:
- Three People who have never met each other before
- A WordCamp Cape Town volunteer
- A WordCamp Cape Town speaker
- Someone with a tattoo – bonus points if it’s a WordPress tattoo
- A WordPress Plugin Developer
- Someone who has never been to Cape Town before
- Someone who has been using WordPress for 5 years or more
- Someone wearing WordPress related apparel
- Someone hitting a golf ball for the first time
- Someone for whom this is their First WordCamp
- An Automattician
- Someone who has contributed to WordPress core
- This is not a race, there is no prize for rushing through it!
- You may not use the same person for more than one ‘Bingo Square’
- You may post your images in any order
- You must include the hashtags or we won’t find your photos (don’t join them up either, #wcct #bingo that’s it)
- You must meet the person you’re photographing – a picture of a speaker in action doesn’t count!
- When you have posted all 12 photos, tweet @WPCapeTown a link to a Twitter search which includes your Twitter username and the hashtags so we can see the results – the URL will look something like this:
