Are you looking forward to WordCamp? I know we are. We have a quite a list of things to tell you about your Camp experience.
Registration starts at 8:00 AM in the lobby of the Loudermilk Center ( directions). Please don’t get there before 8:00. We have to have time to set-up and have plenty of help.
On Friday, right after you register, be sure you get your parking ticket validated to get a free parking coupon. Otherwise parking will be a hefty $12.00. We’re picking up the tab on Friday, and the lot doesn’t charge for parking on Saturday. So not to worry about parking expenses.
When you get there Friday morning you will have an hour to register, get muffins, yogurt and coffee and get ready for the Opening Remarks and Keynote at 9:00 AM.
Don’t linger too long over muffins and coffee. The Ballroom holds just over 400 people so you may want to get your seat early. We will be streaming into the the Happiness Room so you can get a seat there too. This will be the only time so many of us will be in the Ballroom at one time.
Lunch and Afternoon Snacks
We will have lunch for you at noon, and snacks in the afternoon. You are welcomed to eat in the Ballroom, the Happiness room, at the tables behind the lobby and even outside on the steps if the weather is nice.
You won’t need to bring a computer, but we will have free WiFi and the Loudermilk Center upgraded their Internet capability since last year.
We hope you will Tweet all during the conference and please use #WCATL so that we can track tall of the conference related Tweets. You can check the latest news on our Twitter feed. Also be sure to take lots of photos on Instagram and if you use #WCATL on your Instagram photos they will automatically be posted on our Facebook Page. Pretty cool huh? Tweet and take pics of our sponsors and speakers to show them some WordCamp love.
The schedule will be located in the ballroom. You will also be able to access it from your mobile devices.
On Friday, the schedule in three of the rooms is mostly non-technical, with the topics in the area of learn and earn. The Paul Duke Room is more for the WordPress developers. Then on Saturday, the presentations are more about Build and Make and are organized by tracks. The very beginner sessions will be mostly in the Ballroom. Be sure you see the schedule. Two people wrote to us that they couldn’t find it in the Nav bar.
If you are a Volunteer to Emcee or to assist in the Happiness Bar, please check in at the registration table and get a Volunteer sticker for your badge. And check the time and location of where you are helping. Please be on time to keep things running smoothly. We appreciate your help!
We have stickers for your badges to help identify you as a Sponsor. Be sure to pick one up at registration.
Camp After Hours
Mark it down in your calendar that after camp each day from 5-7, we will be meeting at Noni’s Deli at 357 Edgewood Ave. Noni’s will have some of their delicious appetizers out for us, all brought to you by our amazing sponsors.
