For the past two months I’ve been working away all my spare time helping to organize Nashville’s first WordCamp. It’s been a huge learning experience for me really, I’ve never coordinated an event before. Our team was put together from a group of dedicated local meetup members and a few very helpful staff members from WordCamp Central.
The event this year is being held April 21st @ Watkins College or Art, Design & Film as they were generous enough to sponsor us and let us use their campus as the venue. It’s a great campus that instantly took me back to my college days as a TA and lab tech. Miss those days :p
We have two tracks this year, a User Tack and Developer Track. A little for everyone really, and we have a great sessions planned for each. Check out the Schedule. I know for a fact that I’ll walk away with more information than I can possible retain! It’s aways a good feeling when that happens! We’ll also be handing out cool t-shirt, stickers & wp-swag at registration, though I aways feel a little weird wearing a WordPress t-shirt it’s a really cool design!
We expect to sell out by the day of the event so if you find yourself here thinking, “Maybe I should go?”, well, you should! I guarantee if you’re thinking about using WordPress or you already use it, this is for you. No matter what level you are there will be something for you, even if it’s just the after party!
Yep that’s right we’re having after party where we can all get together and mingle to talk about the cool things we’re working on and other random things. And above all, drink some beer. Hope you can make it out and if you haven’t purchased a ticket yet you most definitely should. We’ll be ordering our shirts soon and you don’t want to accidentally get a x-small if you need x-large :p
