Asheville WordPress - Big Boom Design

Asheville PreCamp Resources

A Big THANK YOU! to everyone that came out and participated in the first annual Asheville PreCamp event. As promised, below is a link to the slideshow that was used for the presentation. We successfully built 50 WordPress websites in unison. A special thanks to SiteGround for the year of free hosting for all of the participants.

If anyone has follow up questions about the process or notes in the slideshow, you can reach Boomer Sassmann (Big Boom Design Inc) via email at

PreCamp tickets available soon – limited to 50 attendees!

PreCamp is a hands-on session for those new to WordPress. Unlike WordCamp (Sat & Sun), which focuses on presentations by various speakers, PreCamp (Fri) is a do-it-yourself day.

Are you new to WordPress (or know someone who is) and want some hands-on support in setting up your website? PreCamp is designed to take you from a blank slate to a fully functioning website before you walk out the door. We provide almost everything* you need to get started – including a full year of hosting for your site thanks to the generous sponsorship of SiteGround.

If you’re a beginner who is wondering if this is the right place for you – the answer is YES! We have an amazing team of experienced WordPress users, designers and developers that have donated their time to make this an incredible learning experience for you that will definitely bring results. You’ll be guided through the steps needed to get your first website up and running. And we have enough facilitators to step in and provide some individual support if you get confused along the way.

Want to be one of the lucky 50 attendees? Make sure you’ve signed up for Email updates (subscribe on right-hand sidebar) and we’ll notify you when tickets go on sale.

We look forward to meeting you at PreCamp!

*you will need to bring a laptop with wireless internet, any images and content you will want on your website, and a willingness to learn through hands-on experience (a great sense of humor and willingness to laugh while you learn is appreciated – but not required.)

When, Where and How Much

Friday May 30th Registration begins 9:30 am
Website Creation is from 10am-3pm (lunch provided)

Location & Directions

Tickets are an amazingly low price of $45
(your facilitators charge way more than that per hour for their advice and you get it for free!; you get a year of hosting so you’ll have plenty of time to continue to enhance your website; you have support in implementing what you learn as you learn; and you’ll leave with not only a website but a growing list of resources to continue on your way.)
