Directions to Casco Bay Lines
Tim Moore, Maine resident and WordPress Generalist at Automattic, will run WordCamp Maine’s Happiness Bar. Happiness Bars give WordCamp attendees a chance to ask questions of Automatticians, speakers, and others about issues and features on their WordPress-based sites. This is a great resource for those just getting started, who are stuck with an issue, or want to recap a procedure. Our Happiness Bar will be stationed in the Café on MECA’s 2nd Floor during Saturday’s events.
