Happy Joe is launching its first planned WP Boot Camp in San Antonio, TX on January 23, 2015. The non-profit organization helps US military veterans re-enter the workforce through training in WordPress and the web technology industry in general. Happy Joe was started by former service member James Dalman, who will be presenting at the first WP Boot Camp, along with other WordPress professionals.
The three hour event will give military veterans and their spouses an opportunity to learn, network, and gain access to free resources and online training. Dahlman plans to assist attendees in setting up an online resume website using WordPress as a first step towards entering the web technology industry.
WP Boot Camp is free of charge to anyone with a valid military ID, thanks to event sponsors iThemes, Automattic, WP Site Care, and WebTegrity. The event will be held at Geekdom San Antonio, the largest collaborative co-working space in Texas. However, it is limited to 30 attendees, so those planning to attend must RSVP.
