My last WordCamp for Spring 2016 was the in the “BBQ Capital of the World,” Kansas City, Missouri (#WCKC). WordCamp Kansas City is one of the few WordCamps that spans a three-day period, starting Friday morning. We jumped straight into sessions by noon on Friday and kept it going strong all the way through Sunday afternoon, with a cozy afterparty-style meet-up to conclude each day. Both the Friday and Saturday sessions took place at the Kauffman Conference Center, while Sunday’s sessions were held at the Sprint Accelerator workspace.
