Submission deadline: April 1, 2016
Do you work with WordPress?
Are you a developer, designer, blogger, journalist, activist?
Do you run your business on WordPress?
Are you in or from the St. Louis metro? Are you part of Cardinal Nation?
Has WordPress changed your life? (That can happen.)
Whatever your story, we’d like to hear it.
Whatever your tips, tricks or techniques, we’d like to learn them. And why you prefer them to other techniques, methods or whatever. Why do you think something is a best practice? Why should it be?
In return, you’ll get the undying gratitude of the STL WordPress community; your talk on WordPress.tv (maybe); some awesome culinary concoctions at the Speakers’ dinner and all the smooth Kaldi’s coffee you can drink on site.
Are you in?
Just fill out the form below by April 1. We’ll be back to you within two weeks!
If you’d like to propose multiple topics, please submit the form multiple times – once for each topic.
Your talk should educate or enlighten the community, or both, way more than it promotes your products or company.
It should also embody the values of WordPress.
We are inclusive and welcoming, and positive. Recommend one solution over another? Perfectly fine. Just frame your recommendations as, “I’ve found that with X I could do this faster, make it prettier, whatever … Y had/has these limitations … (not Y was bad or wrong.)
And we do have a code of conduct. In short: Be kind.
We are all about the GPL. We probably all use tools that aren’t GPL. (Photoshop, for instance.) When we speak at WordCamps, the themes and plugins we recommend from the stage need to explicitly embrace the GPL. Questions? Ask!
SPEAKER SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED…if you submitted a proposal, look for an email from the speaker selection committee next week.
