Hi, we’re the organizing team for WordCamp NYC 2014! We’re excited to help bring you an amazing event. Here’s a little more about us:

Dana Skallman came to WordPress by way of tinkering with the outer-space of the Internet and all the possibilities it holds for communicating, archiving information and displaying what’s of interest to people. It wasn’t long before she realized that her zeal for promoting equitable access to technology, without big business-reliance, lies in working with free/libre/open source software, work she is developing with Glocal.
With Tadpole, Dana’s expertise is in developing and integrating organizational workflows using WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS) & configuring CiviCRM as a core Constituent Resource Manager (CRM). She takes pride in providing individuals and organizations with the freedom to focus on their mission while leveraging all that open-source technology has to offer.
