Our Call for Speakers is now open! We will accept proposals until April 18, 2014.
We know we have a really knowledgeable community, so we’re excited to see the topics you’re interested in presenting this year.
If you’re thinking, “Wow, I’d really love to speak at WordCamp, but I don’t know what to talk about!” we’ve got you covered! Later this month, we will host two brainstorming events where we can come up with ideas, start to outline talks, and even practice giving short talks. We also have a survey to find out what topics people want to hear about: we’ll publish the results of that survey soon!
If you’re thinking, “But I’ve never spoken in front of a big group before and that makes me nervous!” fear not! We are also planning some speaker training events, so if you’re nervous about speaking, you’ll get a chance to practice and get some expert advice before you speak.
If you’re thinking, “I wish I could do something other than just stand in front of the room and talk,” then we’re ahead of you on that one too. This year, we are open to a variety of formats for your talks. We will have a workshop track, where you can guide your audience through a task or project. You can also facilitate a panel discussion, group discussion, or series of lighting talks.
So what’s stopping you? Go submit your talk idea(s)!
