Schedule

We’re having a two-day WordCamp this year – March 14-15th. Saturday will have tracks of 30 minute sessions with 15 minute breaks in between.  Sunday is our Community Day which will be much more hands-on and interactive, we will however have a keynote speaker (to be announced soon) right after lunch.

Sessions are labeled with Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Don’t let that dissuade you from attending any session. Ratings like this are entirely subjective after all. 🙂

* we realize that shortening the Saturday session times to 30 minutes may cut short question and answer time for some speakers, so we decided to dedicate one of the classrooms on Sunday afternoon to allow any speakers that need to do follow-up to have a place to do so.
