WordCamp is a great opportunity to hangout with and learn from people who live and breathe WordPress; add to it the idea of supporting a WordCamp in India (I know how important community support is for such gathering- having organized bunch of them) and I have never been to Jabalpur before so that’s more fun.

Friends like Wille Jackson, an authority on WordPress Speed Optimization and Hussain of Chugs Design, who is one the earlier proponents of clean and usable design on WordPress.
