All day Friday, March 14th and Saturday, March 15th: The Happiness Bar is Open!

The WordCamp Happiness Bar is a wonderful place. If you’ve never experienced it, you are in for a treat.
The Happiness Bar is a live help desk, where WordPress professionals sit, and wait, for you to ask them a question. Often populated with WordCamp speakers, organizers or volunteers, a rag-tag group of WordPress professionals are always around to HELP YOU WITH WHATEVER YOU NEED. Come prepared with your questions, conundrums, quagmires, and more…

If you’d like to print the schedule, landscape orientation looks best.
