Seattle WordCamp 2015 — experienced edition is only about six weeks away, and preparations are ramping up for the big event. We’re super excited to announce our schedule of speakers, but before we do we have a few speaking slots still left to fill. So here’s your chance — if you’ve ever even vaguely thought it would be fun to speak at a WordCamp about something of interest to the community, why not apply to speak?
Here are a few ideas to keep in mind when sending us a description of your amazing talk:
- Nothing’s too small, but some topics are too big: You should plan to be able to deliver your talk in about 30-40 minutes with time for questions. However, if your idea is for a very short talk, please apply. We’ll have some micro-slots available.
- Describe your audience and your talk: You should be able to describe what type of WordPress user will benefit from your talk. Are you talking to devs? Bloggers? Both? Also, please summarize what you’re planning to say in one medium-sized paragraph. It makes it easier for us to review. Thanks 🙂
- Don’t be sketchy: have a look at the agreement among WordCamp organizers, speakers, sponsors and volunteers. It’s all common sense, but good to keep in mind.
Have fun! Be brave! Send us your talk idea by filling out this form. We look forward to seeing you at WordCamp.
