Announcing (Some) Speakers!

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:

Tammie Lister and Kathryn Presner, both of Automattic, will host an in-depth workshop on how to become a WordCamp speaker. Meta!

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. Millera 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.

And for all of us: Sveta Kouznetsovaa local UX and accessibility professional, will guide us on how to make websites that are more usable for everyone.


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!

    1. Sorry for not responding earlier, David. Trying to get more info on a multisite presentation – we’re likely to have a good one. And of course there will be lots under the design umbrella – check my post tomorrow 🙂
