#FF WordCamp Hamilton

WordCamp Hamilton 2013
WordCamp Hamilton 2013

It’s a big WordPress month for me here and probably more to come, but let’s get the second Follow Friday post underway!

Next weekend, Hamilton will be hosting its first WordCamp at the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s Tanenbaum Pavillion. I’ve attended two WordCamps in Toronto and they were fantastic. This one is our first go, so we’re going with a single day at a very reasonable price.

I unfortunately won’t be able to attend myself, though I have played a minor role in helping to organize. But hey, when one of your best friends is getting married, they’ve let me off the hook.

Some of the notable people they have talking at the event are Joey Coleman, Al Davis and Kevin Browne. I just had Joey visit my class at Sheridan College the other day and it was a blast! I’ve also seen Al do presentations at WordCamp Toronto and I’m looking forward to most likely hearing him there in a few months again.

If you’ve never attended a WordCamp before, it’s a great event for beginners and advanced alike. I highly recommend it. You can purchase tickets for a mere $20 (just lowered from $25!) on their website here and make sure you follow them @WordCampHamOnt. Have an awesome time!
