Fort Calgary – May 27, 2017

WordCamp Calgary 2017

This will be our 5th annual WordCamp Calgary, in addition to being Canada’s 150th birthday year. What better place to celebrate these two milestones than at Fort Calgary! Don’t stress. No need to brush up on your history, or worry that we won’t have modern technology on hand (what would WordPress be without wifi!)
