We are so excited to bring Scranton its first ever WordCamp! This will be a one day event that focuses on everything WordPress, from setting up a site to using the APIs. We also have a lot of fun planned for after the event (and maybe even a contributor day?). The event will be held at Johnson College.
What is WordCamp?
WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress.
WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. (src).
We will have WordPress-focused talks, sponsors, networking events, swag, and an after party! It’s going to be a great weekend!
If you’re interested in getting involved, we are looking for:
- Sponsors: Sponsors will donate money or in-kind services to the event. We are working on a Sponsor slide deck now to get you the important details regarding audience and reach. Please get in touch if you’re interested! As an added bonus, WordCamps are run by the WordPress Foundation, a non-profit organization.
- Speakers: Interested in sharing what you know? We are looking for talks that range from beginner (how to set up a WordPress site) to advanced (You, Me, and the WordPress API make Three). Submit an application here!
- Volunteers: Not sure about speaking or sponsoring, but still want to help out? No problem! We need volunteers to help get the word out as well as help run the event the day of. Sign up here…and Thank you!
