“Happiness Bar”

We’ll be running a happiness bar again this year, which is basically a “third track” at WordCamp Hamilton!

For those not in the know a WordCamp Happiness Bar is great place to get hands on help and answers to your pressing WordPress questions. It’s not where we hand out stickers and swag. It’s not the place where we serve refreshments, though it is just a stone’s throw from the coffee and tea. It’s the place for you to get the WordPress solutions you need from people who genuinely want to help.


We’ll have two tracks of talks this year.  They are a mix of beginner, intermediate, advanced, designer and developer talks with some fantastic speakers.  Have a look at the sessions and speakers below:
