2018 nErDcamp Bellingham recap

Wow. Wow wow wow. What an amazing day. Here’s some statistics for you:

  • Year 1: 31 attendees
  • Year 2: 51 attendees
  • Year 3: 55 attendees
  • Year 4: 102 attendees!

nErDcamp really is dependent on its attendees. They plan the sessions, bring the expertise, drink the coffee, provide the energy and enthusiasm, and bask in the glow. We are so, so honored that you chose to spend your Sunday morning with us.

If you post a recap on your blog or newsletter, we’d love to link to it here. Just drop it in the comments. Also, don’t forget to check out Craig’s notes on Google Drive, and add your own.

And now, a selection of happy tweets from happy nerds.
