    Big thanks to Software Hamilton for sharing our event! A little background on the idea: I had an awesome time at WordCamp Hamilton 2013. I was impressed to see the interest and desire to build using WordPress and wanted to do my part to help foster that enthusiasm locally. I’m really looking forward to connecting with Hamilton-area entrepreneurs and DIY enthusiasts to help them build their winning online presence.
