Call for Speakers

Please join us in creating an interesting, inviting, family-friendly event. We’re expecting attendees of all ages with a wide range of experience and interests and hope for the same diversity in our speakers. No one is expected to be a professional speaker. We’re simply looking for generous individuals who are willing to share their hard-earned knowledge and experience to help someone else.

Remember, all presentations will be recorded and posted to WordPress.tv. In addition, speakers will be invited to a pre-event private dinner and receive a special “thank you” gift from the organizing committee.

Below is a list of some ideas to get you thinking, but please don’t limit yourself to these ideas. At the bottom is a form where you can apply. Applications must be submitted by end of day July 10, 2017.

Session Overview

As of now we anticipate that sessions will either be 35 minutes long with 15 minutes of Q&A or will be 15 minute lightning talks with no Q&A.

Currently we’re looking for talks related (but not limited) to  the following topics:

  • WordPress Basics
  • Blogging and Content Creation
  • Custom Website Development
  • Themes and Front-End Development (HTML/CSS/JS, Etc…)
  • Design and User Experience
  • Back-End Development, Frameworks, Workflow, etc…

Required Qualifications

Again, you are not required to be a professional speaker, but you must know what you’re talking about and have a desire to help others. We’ll be selecting speakers based on how timely, relevant, and useful the topic is. Also, please keep language and content PG. We wish to respect individual choice and free speech while also being respectful to one another.
