Schedule

Please note that the schedule is subject to change. Please double check the schedule the day of the event. As our speakers are volunteers, we occasionally have unavoidable last minute cancellations.

Pre-WordCamp Workshops

We are holding a series of workshops in the lead up to WordCamp. Check them out here. Workshop tickets are for individual evening workshops only, not WordCamp. If you want to attend the weekend WordCamp, you must also buy a ticket for the main event.
