At this point we're assuming you're super excited about Oaktopia already. We certainly are! This year is a promising weekend of day panels and evening lineups that are incredibly well-curated and we encourage you to buy some tickets and go see all of it. These guys have got it going on, they’ve hit their stride in their third year and we expect bigger and better things from them for years to come. If you still need cliff notes, start here: go to Oaktopia and hashtag #WDDI.
Not even sure what to put here anymore so email firstname.lastname@example.org for ideas.
