As we finalize the schedule, we’re working on getting information out to you as quickly as possible. To that effect, here is a (limited) group of confirmed speakers with brief descriptions of their presentation topics:
For serious geeks, Daniel Bachhuber, who maintains the WordPress Command Line Interface (WP-CLI) plugin, will do a deep dive on its functionality. Helen Hou-Sandí, a Contributing Developer of WordPress and the Project Lead for WP 4.0, will present “So You Know WP_Query. Now What?”
For working devs, Jenn Schiffer, an open web engineer at Bocoup, will lead us through “A Career of Being Lazy Using WordPress“, and Boone Gorges will talk on “Free Software, Free Labor, and the Freelancer: The Economics of Contributing.”
For writers and content managers, Mary Beth Coudal, a blogger whose work has been published in The New York Times, will lead a creative session on “Dangerous Writing” – with improv exercises! Stephen C. Miller, a media technologist from Brooklyn, will help us make our writing stronger, and Jay Hoffman, WordPress dev for the Sesame Workshop, will teach us how to find the best plugins for the job.
PLUS MANY MORE SPEAKERS!
We’ll be publishing more on speakers the rest of this week, with the full schedule soon to follow. Be sure to get your tickets today!
