A very exciting open source event coming to Nagoya on October 30, 2010 about blogging.

I am the programmers and Ustream broadcaster for the event.

WordPress is a free and open source blogging software. Many of the best blog sites in the world such as TechCrunch, Engadget, Wall Street Journal Magazine, Havard University. And Microsoft just announced to embrace WordPress for its Windows Live users.

WordPress is one of rapidly growing softwares in the world.

WordCamp is the conference that focuses anything about WordPress from the beginner to advanced programmers. It’s being held all over the world.

The first WordCamp in Japan was held in Tokyo in 2008. WordCamp 2010 Nagoya will be 6th WordCamp in Japan and the 1st WordCamp to be held in Central Japan.

WordCamp 2010 Nagoya is organized by WordBench Nagoya, a volunteer based study group of WordPress.
