Schedule

This year’s WordCamp Cape Town is running over two days. The first day will be practical workshops to help you develop specific skills in your daily life, and the second will be the regular sessions that you all know and love. The workshops are split up into two separate tracks, with one focussed on the non-technical side of things and the other catering specifically for developers.

Your ticket purchase covers both days as well as the after party, so one you’ve booked then all you need to do is arrive for registration and enjoy yourself.
