Hi again! We’re working on making sure we have enough room blocks to make sure all the contributors who are coming in October can get a decent rate (or have a room provided by us if applicable). Some of you replied to my post from last week and filled in the survey so I’d know you were planning to come, but some haven’t. Additionally, some people did the survey and marked themselves as team members of teams they’re not actually involved with, so I need your help!
I just want to make sure we count everyone so we can try to put you at the same hotel to make the meetup part easier.
If you didn’t read the post before, the plan for the event is:
Sat/Sun — WCSF conference
Monday — community summit
Tues/Wed — team meetups (team being together to talk issues, make plans, work together, etc)
The people who identified themselves as active members of the theme review team in the survey are:
@jcastaneda, @cais, @otto42, Tammie Lister (@karmatosed), Aleksandra Łączek (@alex27), Sakin Shrestha (@Catchtheme), Ayman Al Zarrad (@aymanalzarrad), and Joe Dolson (@joedolson).
Notably, @chipbennett and @emiluzelac are missing. Could you guys fill out the survey so I can have you on the list as we start deciding which hotels to put each team in (this applies to anyone on the team planning to come who hasn’t submitted this survey yet). We’ll be spread out among 4 or 5 hotels, so I want to be sure we can keep the teams together. If you’re not planning to come, just let me know in the comments.
@emiluzelac and @chipbennett, could one of you let me know if the list above is accurate or if there are names on it that are not active members of the team?
And just a reminder that we have a travel assistance program this year to help contributors who don’t work for a wp-based company and can’t cover travel costs on their own. Apply for travel assistance by June 30. IMPORTANT: if you apply for travel assistance, you still need to fill out the contributors at wcsf survey so you’ll be included in the team count as we do our planning.
