Well hello there! I’m super excited to announce that speaker applications are now open for WordCamp Denver 2015!
We’re really big fans of stories because you don’t need to be an “expert” when you use stories. If you’ve ever been hacked you can talk about security. If you ever sent a pull request on GitHub you can talk about version control, and if you’ve ever written a blog post you can talk about blogging. Stories are easily shareable and the attendees will be able to walk away with something really useful.
We’ve also made sessions of varying lengths. Some are going to be around 20 minutes and some around 50. That means that if you have a short story you can request a shorter talk. Same thing if you have a longer story.
Lastly, we want this event to build the awesome Denver / Colorado WordPress community. We’re going to have a slight preference for in-state speakers.
No more questions? Awesome. Go fill out the speaker application.
We’re very excited to announce that the dates and location are set for WordCamp Denver 2015. The organizing team has been hard at work over the last several months getting the initial pieces into place, and this marks the official kick-off.
When / Where
The conference will be held June 13-14, 2015 at the SpringHill Suites Denver Downtown.
What to Expect
We’ll be opening the calls for speakers and sponsors in the very near future (see: the next day or so). Make sure to keep an eye on the blog for those open calls so you don’t miss out. Tickets will go on sale starting in the middle of April.
This year we’ll be offering two packed days of sessions, with a bit of contributing to WordPress mixed in. Stay tuned for more information on speakers and the schedule as we go.
