Got the news a couple weeks ago that I’ll be among the speakers at the upcoming WordCamp in North Canton, Ohio. This will be my first opportunity to speak at a WordCamp and I’m pretty excited about it.
The two sessions I’ll be presenting will be:
- Theme Customization Best Practices
- Enhancing the Admin UX for Clients
The first presentation I’m 95% finished with. I think it’s pretty decent but I’m a little concerned that there’s too much information for the time provided. Oh, well.
The second talk I’m still working on. I have a lot of great content to share but I still need to structure the presentation a little more effectively.
I’m excited about both talks which are on topics that really interest me. I’m also really excited to get to hang out with the really excellent lineup of speakers who will be @NorthCantonWC which includes people like John James Jacoby who is the lead dev for BuddyPress. I got to see him last year at WordCamp Chicago and he had some super interesting stuff to say.
Also on the list is Dustin Hartzler whom I met this year at WordCamp Dayton. He works at Automattic and creates amazing podcasts and video tutorials over at YourWebsiteEngineer.com.
Lots of other great people on the list that I’m looking forward to meeting. We’ll be attending the speaker dinner the night before the main event so hopefully I’ll get a chance to make a few new friends.
Rogan also got the good news that he’ll be speaking at the event as well about project management tools. I look forward to seeing what he comes up with.
If you’re a WordPress person than I really hope you’ll be able to attend the event. It looks like it is going to be a really good time. We’ll be driving down on Friday May 2nd and camping for the weekend. I can’t wait. See ya there!
