Last winter, I joined the team organising the WordCamp Torino 2017 as the lead for the website group. In this post, I’d like to write some tips and tricks for managing a WordCamp website, considering the challenges that we had to face.

The first thing to do when starting working on a WordCamp website is setting up a local environment. WordCamp.org is part of the WordPress Meta Environment. You can choose to install either the whole Meta project or just the WordCamp website.
Here you can find some useful resources:
