Finally! The email I’ve been waiting for… last night WordCamp Atlanta 2014 tickets went on sale. There were 475 tickets available when they went on sale a little before 7pm, but by 9:15pm, there were only 290 tickets left.
If you’ve never been to a WordCamp and you work with WordPress, this is your place to geek out. A gathering of like-minded individuals who use or make a living from the same software always makes for interesting conversation or at the very least, people-watching.
This year, the WordCamp Atlanta theme is “WordPress for Everyone”. They deviated from their previous year’s “Beginner / User / Designer / Developer” tracks into:
- Beginning Developer
- Geek Developer
It doesn’t seem like much of a difference, but they are trying to draw a more diverse audience to the WordCamp arena. If you’ve never worked with WordPress, this is the year for you. With an emphasis on beginners, it is really a good time to start.
Finally, a new take on what get’s talked about – Friday sessions are geared towards “Learn and Earn” type sessions, while Saturday sessions are geared towards “Build and Make” type talks. Personally, I think this is great, as last year many of the sessions I wanted to hear of the “Learn and Earn” type conflicted in time with those of the “Build and Make” type. I haven’t completely reviewed the schedule, but I’m hoping this year there will be less conflict in the WordCamp sessions I want to hear.
These are going fast, so if you plan on going to this year’s WordCamp Atlanta, you definitely want to get a ticket as soon as possible. I’d be surprised if they weren’t already sold out!
And keep an eye out for me. I will be there. So if you see me, say hi!
