WordCamp for Publishers is a bit different than regular camps. It focuses more on the editorial, engineering and publication side of WordPress. This year, WordCamp for Publishers in Columbus takes place on August 7th through the 9th at Vue Columbus. And our very own Patrick Henderson will be there.
So be sure to stop by and say, “hi” while grabbing some GreenGeeks swag!
