Arguably, the best (and bittersweet) part of the conference is what everyone learned and gathered. Here are some recap photos, blog posts and links to some of the presentations.

This year is gearing up to have some really great content. We had a ton of speaker submissions this year and we’re excited to about all of them.
Just wanted to let everyone know that the schedule, speakers and sessions are all up on the website. This year we’re also doing a series of workshops that will be geared more for those people that are wanting to get their hands dirty. The workshops will be longer than the regular sessions but they’ll have breaks in-between. There’s a limited number of spots in each workshop so if you’re interest hurry on over to the tickets area and reserve your spot now and if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, you can do that while you’re there.
Submissions are Closed. We’ll be notifying Speakers and we’ll have the schedule up on the site soon. Thanks to everyone that submitted.
Planning for this year’s WordCamp is coming along smoothly, but now it’s time to hear from you. Are you interested in being a speaker? It doesn’t matter what your experience is, we want to hear your stories and share in your experience. We are looking for people who can share how WordPress has helped them to accomplish their goals, to talk about favorite plugins, themes, or functions, or to tell how you fit in to the WordPress community.
Presentations are typically 30 minutes with a Q and A session at the end. We’re looking for topics that revolve around the following topics.
- WordPress for your Business
- Developing with WordPress
- Designing themes
- Writing and Blogging
- Getting Started with WordPress
We’re also looking at having a few workshops with smaller groups for 2-3 hours. These workshops would be focused on learning a specific thing about WordPress like “Creating your first WordPress site” or “Creating your first plugin”. If you’re interested in leading a workshop please note it in the form below.
Final Deadline: Fri, July 18th 2014
