Pam’s 5 Reasons to Attend WordCamp Bham 2016

WordCamp Birmingham is a great way to network, learn about WordPress, get WordPress tech support, and meet new people in Birmingham, Alabama for a low ticket price of $20. We hope to see you at WordCamp Bham!

Around Infomedia, our Director of Client Services, Pam, is our secret weapon. She’s always eager to help coworkers and clients; she’s a great leader; she’s definitely my go-to person when I need a project done quickly and done well. So we’re proud that Pam’s involved in this year’s WordCamp Birmingham 2016, and we have no doubt that, with her involved, it’s going to be great. So we asked Pam to give us an insider list of top 5 reasons to attend on October 29. (Don’t need a list of reasons to be convinced? Click here to grab a $20 ticket to WordCamp Bham.)

  1. Meet Like-Minded People

WordCamp is a gathering for people who care about websites, about business, about blogging and about WordPress. It’s great for people who really nerd out about WordPress, but it’s also great for those of us who use it every day for the behind-the-scenes of our websites and are always looking for more tips and tricks. At most WordCamps, we learn as much from the people beside us at lunch and at each session as we do from the speakers.

  1. Learn WordPress

pam-wordcamp-2016Do you want to get into building your website on WordPress but don’t know how? WordCamp is a one-stop-shop to everything you need to know to get started, whether you’re a total beginner or more advanced.

  1. Get Help and Happiness at the Happiness Bar

Are you stuck on an area of your WordPress site, and you just can’t figure out how to get past it? Do you have questions that you can’t seem to get answered online? Stop by the Happiness Bar at WordCamp Birmingham — it’s open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and you’ll find experts who’ll patiently help you solve your problems. Help is free with your ticket purchase, and we think the Happiness Bar alone is worth the $20 ticket price.

  1. Find Job Opportunities and Chances to Network

WordCamp Birmingham is designed to create lots of opportunities for speakers and attendees to meet each other and get connected. We’ll be going for the networking opportunities, but it’s also a fantastic way to learn about new job opportunities in tech, coding and content development, too. If you’re a content producer like a writer or a photographer, WordCamp is a good place to rub elbows with people who’ll need your services. (Keep those business cards handy.)

  1. Swag from WordCamp Birmingham, WordPress (and Other Tech Companies)

Pam looooves her swag, and she’s excited about the WordCamp Birmingham stickers and t-shirts (which are pretty great, we have to admit). But WordCamp also features free stuff from lots of the sponsors, and we all like to load up on free stuff.

If Pam has you convinced, or if you just want to meet some Infomedians (most of us are planning on being there), click here to buy WordCamp Birmingham 2016 tickets. More information, as well as a list of speakers, is available on the WordCamp Bham website. We’ll see you there!

Jason loves finding creative ways to solve client problems, and he’s always looking for ways to help clients use technology to get more done while building up the bottom line. Don’t ask this guy to read the manual; he believes technology should be intuitive, and you shouldn’t need to follow directions to get it right. This belief comes in handy when he’s demanding the best user experience for our clients (not so much when putting together Ikea desks). To be happy, all Jason really needs is time with his family: wife, Shawndee, and kids Isaac, Juliette, James and Mary Rose — but a good cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll at Savage’s wouldn’t hurt.
