It is WordCamp Week! Some Info for Attendees

It is officially WordCamp Week, with only a few days before the event we’re all excited to see everyone again this year.

Registration

Registration is from 8:00am – 9:00am, we’ll have some coffee and teas available as you register and get comfortable. You don’t need to bring your ticket.

Tracks

We have 3 Tracks this year. You are free to move from track to track if you have sessions you’d like to see in multiple tracks throughout the day. We encourage you to attend the sessions you think you’ll get the most out of. We’ll also have the sessions on WordPress.tv after the event if you’re interested in multiple topics at the same time slot. Sessions are open-seating.

  • User Track – This track is focused mainly on people who are novices. Just getting started or business owners who also run their site with WordPress, but wouldn’t call themselves developers.
  • Flex Track – This track is a intermediate track between the more novice discussions and more advanced Design & Development related topics.
  • Design/Dev Track – A Track for people who design and develop with WordPress, or have some background in other code languages and are still looking to dig into how WP designers and developers operate.

Check out the schedule, and we recommend finding some of your “can’t miss” talks and making note of them.

Parking

University at Buffalo’s Lots are open during the weekend, so you do not need a parking pass to park in the lots. We suggest parking in the Slee B or Slee A lots. We recommend entering the Campus at the Coventry Entrance, off Millersport Highway.
