Friday Focus Tracks & Saturday Sessions Schedules Announced

In addition to the 16 sessions we will be having on Saturday, we will be having two workshops or focused tracks.

These all day intensives are intended for two very specific groups of people: beginners wanting a complete introduction to WordPress from A to Z and professionals (or wannabe pros) that use WordPress.

These two tracks were originally planned as 2 hours workshops, but so many amazing and talented people wanted to pitch in that we expanded them to full day tracks. Everyone is welcome on Friday we just want to be sure you know what to expect. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have them share their amazing wealth of knowledge with you.

Registration will open at 8:00am on Friday, February 13th with opening remarks at 8:45am and the Friday Focus Tracks starting promptly at 9:00am.

  1. I’m a beginner but don’t have both days available to me. Is Friday for beginners and Saturday for the more experienced? If so, can I come and pay for Friday only?

    1. As a beginner looking to learn the basics you’ll probably get the most out of Friday’s WordPress A-Z Track. It was designed for attendees like you.

      You can review the WordPress A-Z schedule here and click through each session link to detailed session descriptions.

      You should however also review the Saturday Sessions here: again clicking through to the full session descriptions. We’ll be categorizing the Saturday sessions in more detail soon, but it’s a mix of user, developer, design, beginner through advanced content.

      You’re welcome to come Friday only, but there are no single day tickets… and there are only 5 tickets left before we’re all sold out!
