  • Build websites, preferably with WordPress (HTML, CSS, some PHP)
  • Explain THATCamp and unconferences to scholars and others based on personal experience
  • Work independently, completing tasks with minimal supervision
  • Keep track of what’s going on at various events (THATCamps happen often!)
