WordCamp RI is offering free admission to ALL students with a valid student ID to this year’s sessions, due to the generosity of our sponsors. WordCamp RI takes place over two days: Friday September 25 and Saturday September 26 at New England Tech’s East Greenwich campus. Students not only get free admission by pre-registering, lunch is also included both days. (Yes, that’s students from any educational institution: free admission!)
WordCamp RI is a two-day conference focusing on WordPress, an open-source online publishing tool. WordPress currently powers more than 20% of the world’s websites and blogs.
There are two main attractions for students at WordCamp RI.
- Computer studies students can spend two days enhancing their coding knowledge.
- Students from many academic fields can learn how to use WordPress and then make it an online portfolio of their work and studies.
Friday there are three intensive tracks running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a break for lunch. (Lunch is included with admission.)
Saturday, attendees can choose from among 15 different sessions. Each session runs about 45-minutes. Once again lunch is included.
In addition, WordCamp RI will feature the famous Happiness Bar, also known as the Help Desk. Attendees can get one-on-one WordPress help from the volunteers at the Happiness Bar. Bring your laptop and questions!
Non-students are welcome also! Admission, including two days of sessions, access to the Happiness Bar (Help Desk) and lunch, is only $20 per person for both days.
This once-a-year event is not to be missed. See you at WordCamp RI!
