How do the Sunday Workshops work?

You’ve no doubt noticed that Sunday programming is small-group, hands-on workshops.

How is that going to work?
We have a room full of 8-person round tables. Each table will hold a single workshop – 1 instructor + 7 eager learners. (If the weather is nice, some of the non-technical, business-focused workshops may choose to move outside.)

All workshops run concurrently for 3 hours (9:00-12:00), so you may only attend one workshop.

Bring your laptop.

The caffeine is on us. (There will be coffee, tea, and water provided.)

How do you choose which one you want to attend?
Leah, our Co-Lead Organizer, is emailing all Sunday ticket holders, in order of purchase, and personally matching attendees with available workshops. So keep an eye on your inbox!

Call for Speakers

Applications have closed–thank you!

WordCamps are an opportunity to get involved in your local WordPress community. You can talk with and learn from other freelancers, developers, designers, agency owners, etc. You can also learn the latest technologies from our local CO scene.

To do that we need members in our community to step onto a stage and share their story. You don’t need to have a special degree or credentials. You just have to have courage and a learning moment that you’re willing to share.

Tickets: now available “glitch-free”!

If you see anything weird with PayPal when trying to purchase tickets A) try purchasing through an incognito window and see if that clears things up and B) if it’s still weird please contact us directly!!
