The 2012 Reno-Tahoe WordCamp will be held on Saturday, June 30th at the University of Nevada, Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. A series of workshops and WordPress developer sessions will be held on Sunday, July 1st at the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center.

Reno-Tahoe WordCamp is a two-day community conference for WordPress users, developers, designers, and marketing and advertising professionals from all around Reno, Lake Tahoe, and the surrounding area to meet, mingle, and learn about WordPress.

Make it a long weekend:

July 1st is the first day of ArtTown http://bit.ly/LEVDl1, and being the week of July 4th you need to stay and witness fireworks over beautiful Lake Tahoe. So come to see old friends, make new ones, learn new WordPress goodness and stay and experience what makes Reno/Tahoe awesome.

See you here.
