Hey, we hope you enjoyed your attendee email today with lots of pro tips for enjoying WordCamp Portland tomorrow. Here are a few things we missed:
I-5 N is CLOSED: According to ODOT, Interstate 5 northbound is closed between the Marquam and Fremont bridges from 11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17 to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 20.
**Avoid using I-5 north and U.S. 26 (Sunset Highway) east near the Vista Ridge Tunnel or expect long delays.**
Wow, it’s hot: Don’t be too scared to come to WordCamp! There is, as it turns out, AC in the building, but since the building dates back to 1928, it’s not the best climate control in the city. That being said, two of the tracks will be held in basement rooms and the other room has a super-high ceiling. So: dress cool but comfy and don’t forget to hydrate.
Can I still buy a ticket?: We’ll be selling walk-in tickets at the door for $25, credit card or check. 🙂
I’ve got the power: It would be best to power up all your devices and machinery tonight! There are outlets available, but not at every table.
We can’t wait to see you tomorrow morning! Oh, and don’t forget to read Aaron’s awesome poem.
