About WDS Academies:
As WDS grows, more and more people are arriving early and staying late. This year marks the 2nd year of WDS Academies: a series of mini-events focused on specific topics that take place on the days surrounding WDS weekend. Registration for Academies is separate from WDS itself. We'll offer registration for the Academies both to WDS attendees, as well as (for a slightly higher price) to the general public.
All Academy tickets are non-refundable. If you register and aren't able to attend, we'll gift your ticket to someone else on a space available basis.
