Well the first WordCamp of 2022 is now to be determined. WordCamp Birmingham aka WPYall has been postponed due to Covid, #WPYall Postponed Until Spring:
As a result, the WordCamp Birmingham Organizing Team has unanimously decided to postpone WP Y’all until a future date in April or May when we can safely hold the event for our attendees.
This is sweet and simple, load WordPress sites in as fast as 37ms with Cloudways!
I had really hoped to not see this happen. I think confusion and indecision from the WordCamp mothership is only making this more frustrating for me. Here it is folks, make vaccination a requirement. Keep it simple. Not everyone will be happy but maybe we will actually have a level of in-person rather than zero.
I understand the difficulties volunteer based WordCamp organizers are having, but much of it is self created by trying to satisfy multiple constituents – these events should be as open as possible (see WordCamp Code of Conduct) but defaulting to the no-camp scenario doesn’t make sense if folks who are fully vaccinated (that means boosted as well) and are aware of the risks wish “to camp.”
