WordCamp Fayetteville is scheduled for July 26-28, 2013 at the Reynolds Center on the U of A campus. Haden Interactive is even now planning a fantastic introductory session and meetup for Friday night, with Eric Huber of Blue Zoo Creative as the featured speaker. Angela Belford of The Belford Group is the 2013 Chair, and word is that she has already lined up barbecue for the 27th. Put it on your calendar right now.
WordCamps are informal, community-planned events that are designed to provide learning, networking, and inspiration for everyone who uses WordPress, from the veriest tyro to professionals, from people who own a business website that happens to be built on a WordPress platform from people who develop and design for WordPress.
WordCamp Fayetteville is also a particularly fun WordCamp, and that’s nothing to sneeze at.
While things are still tentative, this is a terrific time to get involved. How exactly can you be involved?
- Volunteer. We have a slew of committees, and we need people with lots of different skills. This is a great way to get to know other creative people in town. Check out the Facebook page for news.
- Register. Well, you can’t actually register yet, but there is a committee working on that. Put it on your calendar, put the $30 fee in your summer budget, and we’ll let you know when you can actually register.
- Sponsor. Christopher Spencer of Ozarks Unbound is in charge of cash sponsors. If you’d like to be an in-kind sponsor and let the WordPress world know how great your coffee is (for example), Julianne Darnell of Haden Interactive wants to talk with you. Call her at 479.966.9761.
- Speak. Speakers are needed for many topics at many levels of expertise. The committee will be finalizing the slate in April, but we’re beginning right now so we can have the best WordCamp ever. If you have knowledge to share in any area of WordPress, please give us a shout.
