The Sponsors area of the site is now available with information about sponsoring WordCamp SLC. Sponsoring a WordCamp is a great way to expose other WordPress users to your unique product or service. It also helps us keep the cost of admission low, making it possible for just about anyone who wants to, to come out and participate. We especially love seeing local businesses as sponsors and learning about how local SLC businesses are using WordPress.
The University of Utah will once again be host to a couple hundred bloggers, coders, WordPress evangelists and everyone and anyone in between on September 22nd. We’re just starting to get things rolling, so we don’t have all parts of the site up just yet, but if you’re interested in speaking you can fill out our speaker submission form. If you are interested in being a sponsor or have any other questions, let us know! We’re working on the tickets and should be able to open early registration soon. Stay tuned!
It’s that time of year again…
If you are passionate about WordPress and love to talk about it, you’d be perfect to speak at this year’s WordCamp SLC. We love hearing from people from all areas of expertise; hardcore hackers and core contributors, innovative entrepreneurs and businesses owners, and users, bloggers and WordPress zealots. Now’s your chance to get on your soapbox and share your story with a roomful of fellow WP fanatics!
So, how do you sign up? I’m glad you asked. Head over here to our speaker submission form and give us all the details on what you’re planning to talk about. Make sure that the email address you submit has a Gravatar associated with it, as we’ll be using that on our speakers page.
We’re open to all topics, but here are some ideas to get you started:
- plugin development
- contributing to core
- system administration and site optimization
- introduction to… (blogging, SEO, the dashboard, etc)
- using WordPress as… (a scrapbook, an event management solution, a blog, a business, a portfolio)
- WordPress.org vs. WordPress.com
- finding a good webhost
- the GPL (what it is, what it means to you, etc)
Want to get involved but don’t want to speak in front of a bunch of people? Let us know you’d like to be a volunteer on our contact page.
There isn’t a hard deadline for speaker submissions at this time, but the sooner you get your submission in, the more likely you are to get a slot, so do it now!
