The Big Day is almost here! We’ve compiled some information to help make your WordCamp experience as seamlessly awesome as possible.

REGISTRATION: We open the doors at 8:00 and sessions start at 9:00 a.m. Please don’t come too early. There is plenty of time to check-in, get your t-shirt, grab some coffee and meet some folks.

LOCATION: The Nashville School of Law is located at 4013 Armory Oaks Drive, Nashville, TN 37204. The facility and parking lot are Wheelchair Accessible. Parking is ample and free.

FOOD & BEVERAGE: Coffee and water will be available throughout the day. Lunch service is included.

INTERNET / WIFI / POWER: All session rooms have stadium-style seating with individual power outlets. WiFi is available to everyone, but with many people on phones, tablets and laptops logged in at the same time, you may want to bring a hotspot if you have one.

SCHEDULE: If you want a printed copy of the schedule get it here before leaving home. The schedule also will be printed on the lanyard cards.

SOCIAL MEDIA: Please share your experiences at WordCamp Nashville on Twitter using the official hashtag, #wcn15.

WE STAND READY: If you have general questions, a volunteer can help. They’ll be wearing the green t-shirts. Don’t forget one-on-one help with WordPress questions – be sure to bring your laptop to the Help Desk. We will have a team of rotating WordPress experts to help you throughout the day.

GET A LYFT: Lyft, the paid ride-sharing service, has agreed to a partnership that gives first-time Lyft users one ride worth up to $20. The code will be printed on the lanyard card.

AFTER PARTY: The WordCamp after-party will be in downtown Nashville from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at The Flying Saucer, a literal Beer Emporium. We will be offering two drinks per attendee as well as some light appetizers. Feel free to invite significant others. The address is 111 10th Ave. S, Nashville, TN, 37203. There is (paid) parking available behind the venue, which is down a ramp and near the train tracks.

GET TO KNOW YOUR COMMUNITY: We hope you love the sessions, yet much of what comes out of going to a WordCamp happens between sessions. Take the time to meet people and learn about what they do. You will not find a more open and available community – WordPressers are a friendly lot.

See you Saturday!
