The 50 early bird tickets for WordCamp St. Louis 2011 are GONE! That means from here on out, tickets cost $25 until the day of the event and will cost $30 at the door (if we don’t sell out before then).
We’re excited to announce that we are adding a ‘Happiness Bar’ for WordCamp St. Louis 2011 staffed with WordPress experts between 10AM and 6PM. The ‘Happiness Bar’ is a place to ask questions about WordPress in a one-on-one setting. It’s like a magic 8-ball of WordPress except with real people instead of a blue floating answer thingy that says stuff like “no,” “try again later,” or “outlook not so good.” Beats the heck outta that.
Make sure to buy tickets today! Early bird tickets are going fast.

Facebook and Twitter are our most effective (and cheapest) form of advertising so make sure you hook it up P-H-A-T. Yeah, I went there. I know saying things like PHAT and rad probably went out sometime in the late 90s, but I’m an old school dude, so that’s how I roll.
