Who Should Attend a WordCamp?

If you have worked with WordPress for any length of time, you’ve probably attended a WordCamp. However, there are lots of new folks looking to get their “learn-on” and folks who just can’t stay away from a good “Camp.” Regardless of where you’re at with WordPress, we’ve got you covered!

What is a WordCamp?

WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organised events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other

What’s in it For You?

Lots! The sheer amount of information from savvy and articulate folks is enough to make your ears bleed from the overload of awesome. Not only that, you can make connections with other like-minded folks and really connect with a supportive community in the process. The information and connections you make from attending a WordCamp can pay-off for years to come!

Also, be sure to let us know what YOU want to for our Sunday Speaker Tracks

WordPress for Users and Newbies
Maybe you just started out using WordPress over at WordPress.com or you are hosting WordPress on your own website but aren’t a designer or developer you’ll find valuable information at some beginner-level speaker sessions. You may even find some folks that can answer your questions. If you have a track you’d like to see on Sunday, vote and let us know about it!

WordPress for Publishers
WordPress isn’t always about beginners, developers or designers. Sometimes it’s about learning how to manage your content, or how to craft more effective content that gets eaten up in Social Media circles and by Search Engines. Perhaps you’re a content administrator or marketer at an organization. There are often tracks that give excellent tips on managing/optimizing content and workflows and more!

WordPress for Designers
WordPress is a wonderfully flexible tool. In the hands of an capable designer one could make a gorgeous site that grabs the attention of an audience. Often times, these design tracks provide invaluable insight into design workflows, concepts and troubleshooting vexing creative problems. Some of the most invaluable information for designers and developers can be found in these tracks.

WordPress for Developers
You know WordPress like Keanu ‘knows kung-fu.’ You make WordPress do pretty much anything you like; you’ve worked with Multisite, BuddyPress and have built sites that gets hundreds of hits a day to millions of views per month!! Yeah, you may know WordPress, but there’s some ridiculously smart people who give their time and brain power to help others. You may see a talk about re-factoring code, securing sites, integrating version control into your workflow, building projects that scale to millions of users…. I’m getting tired thinking about it all!! The point is, if you live and eat WordPress, as a developer, you will take something away from a WordCamp

WordPress for Business
This has been an emerging topic in the WordPress community. Many people who use WordPress often run a business on it in some fashion. People who make money from WordPress do so in a variety of ways. Those who create premium content, sell plugins, memberships, digital products, or offer consulting services can learn a ton of great information from a WordCamp and make wonderful connections, too!
