Octobers Meetup brings with it some exciting news about WordCamp London! Lots to catch up on and plenty of great WordPress discussions to be had.
Speaking at a WordCamp
WordCamp London will be 20th - 22nd March. We're about to open the call for speakers and we'd love for as many of the WPLDN meetup to apply as possible. In this presentation I'll share with you some of my knowledge and experience as both a WordCamp organiser and a speaker. I'll talk about why you might want to speak at a WordCamp, how to put together your application, how the speaker selection process works, and what speaking at a WordCamp involves. I'll also answer any questions about WordCamp London and about the speaking process.
Presented by Siobhan McKeown. Siobhan works at Audrey Capital where she is working on a book about the history of the WordPress project. She’s also active in the WordPress documentation project. She’s an experienced WordCamp organiser, having helped organise WordCamp Europe, WordCamp London, and WordCamp San Francisco.
