Cancellation of WordCamp Asia 2020
The first WordCamp Asia, scheduled in Bangkok from February 21 through February 23, has been canceled due to COVID-19 fears.
It’s an unfortunate start to what will be an amazing WordCamp Asia tradition, but there’ve been a lot of silver linings, including WordFence, Yoast, GoDaddy, and ServMask each chipping in $10,000 to help with airline and hotel change fees.
In general, from my distant vantage point (and drawing mostly on coverage in the always excellent Post Status newsletter), the logistics and decision making around the cancellation seem to speak highly of WordPress as a global community, idiosyncratically organized but quite functional and tight-knit.
Can’t wait to see everybody in 2021!
