If you’ve ever been to a WordCamp, you know that the talks are a huge part of the event. We love that so many people want to share their WordPress knowledge with our community, and have had amazing talks come out of WordCamp. You can even watch last year’s videos online!
Do you have a lesson, idea, or story you want to share with our audience? You should apply to speak. You don’t need to have tons of public speaking experience (or any), all we ask is that you be able to present your chosen topic passionately and respectfully (there are a few other guidelines outlined on the speaker application). If you’re unsure about a topic, we’re happy to chat it through.
Last year we tried adding two new themed tracks. This worked well, so we’re going to do it again! There will be a Saturday morning track, WordPress 101, to get people new to WordPress up-to-speed for the rest of the conference; and another track for WordPress in Higher Education. Of course, we’ll always have our informal tracks of content for developers, designers, writers, business owners… Is there another theme you’d like to see a track dedicated to? Let us know in a comment!
We’re also trying to put together some panels for general conversation on common topics. If you’re interested in volunteering for a panel, check that out.
Speaker applications close on May 31st, so you’ll have plenty of time to get your presentations done 🙂
