1.  WordCamp Seattle: October 29-30

Posted Oct 19, 2016 17:51

My local WordCamp is coming up and so I wanted to plug it here! If you're actively involved in your local WordCamp, please feel free to share similar posts when they're coming up so members of our world-wide community can know about them! For anyone unfamiliar with WordCamp, they are a global network of volunteer-run WordPress conferences (and they're always cheap!). See if there's a WordCamp near you!

-------------------------------------------

For anyone looking to develop or build on any level of WordPress knowledge, WordCamp Seattle tickets are still available. Tickets are an incredible value, only $40 for October 29 and 30 and will include a lunch voucher for each day. The conference is entirely volunteer run.

This is an great opportunity for affordable WordPress professional development, and I hope many local nonprofits and nonprofit-friendly business can take advantage of it. Since I last wrote, the full schedule has been posted. Talks that I'd recommend for nonprofit staff and friends include:
  • 3-hour Workshop for Beginners
  • Getting to Know WordPress Multisite
  • Custom Post Types for Non-Developers (trust me on this one!)
  • Hack Attack
  • Helping Non-Profits Change the World with WordPress
  • On Site SEO in WordPress for Content Marketing
  • 10 Blogging Habits that Kill the Competition
There will also be a help desk available the entire weekend for getting free 1-on-1 help and advice from WordPress experts. This alone is practically worth the ticket!

After a WordCamp, presentation videos are often published on WordPress.tv. Which is handy if you can't make it to one in person.
