Why bring people from Atlanta?
The program Micah and Aaron are presenting has already been built and tested! The program was run at WC Miami 2015 and WC Atlanta 2016. The goal is to streamline the process at ever corner for this first event. Perhaps we’ll get a Nashvillian willing to put on v2 of the dev day?
Small event pilot program
Something new to the community program is to find ways of doing small, focus events like this. The goal is to have a partial day, one session event that is one step up from a general meetup and many steps down from a WordCamp. Nashville is using this event to help find ways to make these small events more possible for more cities.
Micah and Aaron have been willing from the start to come to Nashville on their own time and cost. I think we can agree that their time is worth as much as our own. I believe as a community we can come together and show our appreciation by helping to cover their costs.
My goal is that this small event will inspire Nashville locals to host similar small events. If this is something you are interested in please connect with me through the wpnashville slack group or if you are outside of Nashville connect with me on the WordPress slack group. @randy_hicks
