The tickets for WordCamp Boulder 2010 went on sale today. The discounted early bird tickets have been flying off the shelves – it’s great to see such an enthusiastic response from our local tech community.
I wanted to publish a quick Q & A to answer a few things I’ve seen circling around:
- What is included in the ticket price?
- Your ticket gives you access to all event sessions, the Genius Bar (staffed in part by WordPress HelpCenter) the after-party as well as lunch and a snazzy t-shirt.
- Will the event sell out?
- It’s hard to say for sure, but last year’s WordCamp (the first in the Denver/Boulder area) sold out and we sadly had to turn folks away at the doors if they didn’t have a ticket. We’ve already seen that this year’s event has a lot more inertia than last year’s did. I do expect we will sell out and recommend buying a ticket ASAP.
- Where can I buy a ticket?
- Right here.
- How can I get the latest news about WordCamp Boulder on Twitter?
- Follow @WordCampBoulder
- What happened to WordCamp Denver?
- We’ve moved it to Boulder this year. There are great tech communities in both Denver and Boulder, it just made sense to have it in Boulder this year since we had it in Denver last year.
- Does this mean it will be in Denver next year?
- That’s the current thinking, though we are always happy to hear feedback from the community about location, venue, content, etc. for the event. After all, it is an event for the community – we want your help in shaping it.
- How can I provide useful feedback to help shape this year’s WordCamp?
- We have a survey you can fill out. Also, feel free to get in touch with any thoughts, idea and/or concerns you want to make sure we take into consideration.
- I want to help, what can I do?
- We can aways use more great volunteers, speakers and sponsors. Please get in touch and we’ll be glad to work with you.
- What can you tell me a little about the venue?
- We’re going to try something a little different this year. Our main stage will be at the Boulder Theater. This will be the location for morning check in and for the larger presentations. We will also be having smaller discussion and technical sessions at the TechStars Bunker and Atlas Purveyors. We are hoping that the addition of these smaller venues will allow for those some sessions to be more interactive and hands-on.
- Is the WiFi going to work this year?
- We sure hope so. We can’t promise anything, but we have already taken steps to try and ensure we have great connectivity this year. Also, we should have better cell signal available in these venues.
- Will there be a live stream of the event?
- Probably not. We do plan to have videos posted on WordPress.tv after the event.
I’m quite looking forward to the event. We learned a great deal last year and received a bunch of valuable feedback – hopefully that will manifest itself in a stellar WordCamp Boulder 2010.
