During WordCamp Nashville 2013, an impromptu Help Desk was created by some willing and able volunteers who saw a need. For 2014, we hope to build on last year’s hectic but successful Help Desk by offering it as a special track…Track 0.
Track 0 will be unlike the other three tracks for beginner, intermediate, and developer WordPress users. For one, there are no formal sessions or speakers. The setting will be informal, and you’ll be able to come and go as you please throughout the entire day (except for a brief lunch break).
But best of all, Track 0 isn’t just for beginners, intermediates, or developers – it’s for everyone.
In the morning, from about 9 a.m. to about noon, we will host a 3-hour general Q&A session. We will have leaders from the Nashville WordPress community answering (ideally) any and every question you can think of regarding WordPress.
Don’t have a question? Come anyways – you’ll probably have one after hearing everyone discuss a topic for a few minutes. And you might just get an answer to a problem you haven’t had yet. Remember, come and go as you please, and if you’re lucky enough to be the only one in the room, you’ll get special attention.
During lunch, we will have volunteers taking names for afternoon 1-on-1 sessions across a range of WordPress experience levels. That’s right – you’ll have the opportunity to get one-on-one attention from experts in the field. We’ll even try to match your specific question up with someone who is an expert in that particular topic (no guarantees!).
These 30-minute sessions are first-come, first-serve, so you may want to sign up before grabbing your lunch. Room space and volunteers permitting, we’ll continue a smaller version of the morning Q&A.
The Help Desk doesn’t stop at the end of WordCamp! Join our meetup.com group – http://www.meetup.com/NashvilleWordpress/ – to get direct access to Nashville’s WordPress community. If you want to get a headstart on your questions, this group will host a preliminary Help Desk at the next meetup on Monday, April 2 at 7 p.m.
