Additionally, a huge props to all of the volunteers and speakers. Their involvement is crucial to making WordCamp Vancouver the quality event that we’ve had since we started a few years ago.
Finally, we’d like to thank everyone who attended WordCamp Vancouver 2014 over the weekend. Without your presence and enthusiasm, we, the organizers wouldn’t be putting this together. So thank you, thank you, thank you!
