Call for Speakers

WordCamp Boston is a community event that brings together designers, bloggers, developers, artists, small business owners, entrepreneurs, and educators from all across New England. It’s our mission to have WordCamp Boston represent the passion, talent and diversity of that community, and we want you to be a part of it!

Want some suggestions? Check out our topic idea suggestions.

Talks for all skill levels will be considered, and a presentation on things you learned setting up your very first website can be just as valuable as a technical walk-through of how user capabilities and roles are implemented within WordPress.

What we look for

Let’s reiterate that we do NOT require you to be famous, or “expert,” or a programmer, or specifically credentialed, or anything like that. If you haven’t spoken at a conference before, don’t let that hold you back! All we ask is that you be able to present your chosen topic passionately and respectfully.

We do have some general guidelines for talks, though, and here they are: Your talk should be…

  • directly related to WordPress, or immediately applicable and relevant to our audience
  • respectful of the WordPress community, the WordCamp code of conduct, and the GPL
  • something that interests you, that you want to share!

Event details

  • Talks will be a total of 45 minutes, but expect to leave about 15 minutes for Q&A.
  • Talks will be on Saturday July 18th & Sunday July 19th.
  • We plan to record all talks and post the videos to WordPress.tv. Speakers will need to sign an A/V release form prior to giving their presentation.
  • Speakers will be offered free admission to WordCamp Boston, but will not be otherwise compensated.

Thanks to everyone who submitted! The form is now closed, and we’ll be announcing all the speakers within a few days.
