The event will take place on a Friday and Saturday. Friday March 7th, will be hands-on training, a refresher course for those interested in starting from the beginning. Saturday will be filled with tracks for the novice, power users, developers and everything inbetween. I asked the organizer of the event what inspired them to organize a WordCamp in the Dayton, Ohio area.
WordCamp Dayton was the next logical step for us after running the Dayton WordPress Meetup group for a little over a year. A couple years back, Nathan Driver and I began discussing the need for a local resource of all things WordPress. Columbus has a great monthly Meetup. However, we wanted something a little closer to home.
After some guidance(pushing) from Jonathan Davis, Nathan and I created DaytonWP and scheduled our first meetup for October 11, 2012. The big push to get our WordCamp organized was Nathan hearing that people attending WordCamp Columbus wanted to know if/when Dayton’s would be scheduled.
WordCamp Dayton is the third different WordCamp to take place in the state of Ohio. During 2013, there two WordCamps in Ohio, WordCamp North Canton and WordCamp Columbus. Although general admissions tickets are not yet available for purchase, I will be in attendance at this event. If you plan on going, let me know in the comments.
