We can’t believe WordCamp Orlando is only three weeks away! It feels like just yesterday we were waiting on approval for our dates…
Since we have put in our head counts for lunches and ordered our shirts, we have capped ticket sales at the current amounts. NO MORE TICKETS WILL BE RELEASED. When they’re gone, they’re gone. So if you haven’t bought your ticket yet or you know someone who’s interested, make sure they get on it soon!
We wanted to cover some frequently asked questions before things get too crazy with camp preparation (don’t worry, there will also be an email reminder before each day of camp with any important announcements)
What do I need to bring?
Honestly, nothing. You are welcome to bring your laptop/tablet and we will do our best to have adequate power supplies and decent wi-fi. However, if you know you need your device we suggest bringing it fully charged and a backup power source if possible. If you get cold easily we suggest a jacket as some of the classrooms can be chilly.
What about food?
We will have hot coffee, tea, and chilled water stations running all day to keep you perky and hydrated (free water bottles provided by MainWP will help us cut down on water cup waste!). Each day the Rosen catering department will provide a full lunch with vegetarian and gluten-free options along with bottled water and soda and a dessert. Sunday morning our brunch will feature fresh fruit, pastries, bagels, juice, coffee, and mimosas for our of-age attendees. There are soda vending machines on campus, but you may want to bring your own snacks if you tend to get hungry between meals.
Do I have to pick a track and stick with it?
Nope! We encourage you to track-hop, learn new things, sit in on a talk you know nothing about and learn something new! You can attend any track you want at any time and switch freely all day.
What happens if none of the talks interest me?
Did you know there’s a hidden track at most WordCamps? It’s the “hallway track” where people not in sessions get to mingle and chat with our amazing sponsors! Who knows, you might find a great new product or service to use on your site, or meet another attendee for a collaboration! Additionally, the Happiness Bar will be open all day for you to get help with your WordPress questions (or answer others’ questions, if you are so inclined).
