WordCamp Cincinnati is now just a week away! Can you believe it? If you haven’t already, you should register to attend while tickets are still available and subscribe to our blog using the form in the sidebar. We’ll be posting important details about the event this week so that you know what to expect on the 15th and 16th.
As we start to reflect on all of the work that has been put into planning Cincinnati’s first WordCamp, we can’t help but be grateful to the sponsors who have contributed to ensuring its success. We’re fortunate to have sponsors from both the local and broader WordPress community who are deeply interested in growing and bringing together the WordPress community. With that in mind, we wanted to give one last shout-out to all of our sponsors. Many will be in attendance at the event, so be sure to thank them in person when you see them!
University of Cincinnati – Tangeman University Center
The University of Cincinnati has generously agreed to be our venue sponsor. Thank you UC!
