IMPORTANT – Schedule Updates & A New Session

We hope everyone is getting excited for WordCamp tomorrow. We wanted to send a quick note that we have a couple of small schedule updates to announce.

  • Due to unforeseen circumstances Nicolas will not be able to attend WordCamp this weekend, so instead Ernest Barbaric has stepped up to the plate to present a fantastic talk called – Finding Your Voice – Learning From 6 Years of Failure.
  • Based on attendee feedback, we’ve made a small modification to the schedule and removed the extra half an hour for the Mentor Lunch. Because of this change all of the afternoon sessions now line-up and you won’t have to worry about leaving the middle of one session to catch the next.

24 Hours To WordCamp Calgary

With 24 hours until WordCamp Calgary kicks off, we figured we would post a few things to do to get you excited and ready.

  1. Familiarize yourself with our schedule and plan out your day. We did make a small change to the afternoon line-up, so you no longer have to chose between missing sessions as both track in the afternoon start at the same time.
  2. Explore the archives of WordCamp.TV to get a feel for all the great content you’ll be exposed to on Saturday.
  3. Start brainstorming the questions you’d like to ask at our Everything WordPress: Ask The Experts, Be An Expert panel.
  4. Start warming up those tweeting fingers and get to know the Wordcamp Hashtag – #wordcampyyc.
  5. Follow us on Facebook, so we can send you any last minute changes.
  6. … and of course rest up. It’s going to be a fantastic day.

Three Reasons To Pick-up A Ticket For WordCamp Today

Besides the obvious answers of great content, fantastic swag and amazing networking opportunities – here are three reasons why you should pick-up a ticket to WordCamp Calgary today.

  1. To make things easier for catering and badge printing the team will be forwarding on official numbers later today (Wednesday June 11th). By registering early it ensures we have your food order in and that you’re not one of those attendees with a hand written badge.
  2. Although we will take some registration at the door, we will still require you to purchase a ticket online [no cash tickets at the door]. So why not save yourself the headache by reserving a ticket before hand.
  3. Oh! And one last thing. There are also less than 25 tickets available WordCamp Calgary. So picking a ticket up before hand will guarantee a spot before we sell out.
