Winners of the WordCamp Austin Contest Announced!

Earlier this week, we announced that we had two extra WordCamp Austin 2012 tickets burning a hole in our pocket. We held a drawing to give them away this week. We asked for answers to two simple trivia questions, and the names of those who answered correctly were put into a hat, and the winners were drawn at random.

The questions:

1) Where was the first WordCamp held, and on what date?
2) What was Austin, Texas called before it was named Austin in the 1830s? 

First, the answers:

1)  San Francisco, CA.  August 5, 2006
2) Waterloo

Second, the winners!

1) Jennifer Ross
2) Joel Farris

Congrats, folks! We’ll be contacting you today via email.

Thanks to everyone for their participation!

WordCamp Austin 2012 will be held in Austin, TX on May 16th. Click here for more information.

    Woohoo! I never win anything! My husband and I were planning on going to WordCamp Austin, but it sold out before we could buy our tickets! Now at least one of us can go! 🙂 I haven’t gotten an email yet… how do I claim my ticket?

    Thanks so much for the contest guys! 🙂
