Quick update on the upcoming WordCamp SLC 2012 on September 22nd:
Look forward to seeing everyone again on the 22nd up at the UoU campus.
WordCamp SLC is back for 2012! The date is September 22nd, and we’ll be back at the University of Utah campus (their wifi has worked every year!).
Now is also the time to put together your speaker submissions. We’ve got several people already lined up, but still have room for more.
Tickets will go on sale this week. There will be a discount for purchasing your ticket early, as that makes it easier to plan for things like lunch and t-shirts.
For all the details subscribe to http://2012.slc.wordcamp.org/ and follow @wcslc on Twitter.
WordCamp San Francisco 2012 will be on August 4, 2012. The location is the same as the last few years, the Mission Bay Conference Center.
I’ll be presenting at WordCamp SLC 2011 on September 10th. My session is titled ‘Site Performance, From Pinto to Ferrari’. I’ll be talking about techniques for measuring the performance of your site, making goals for what you’d like it to be and tips on how to speed things up. Some of these will apply more broadly to just about any site on the web, then we’ll go into more specific WordPress options for better performance.
The early bird tickets are still available, for only $15 (which includes lunch and t-shirt). After August 27th the ticket price goes up to $20. We are trying to encourage people to signup early because it makes getting accurate numbers for t-shirt and lunch orders easier. So go hit the WordCamp SLC 2011 registration page today and save yourself a few dollars.
I look forward to seeing everyone again up at the University of Utah on September 10th.
As of yesterday registration for WordCamp SLC 2011 is now open.
This year we trying something a bit different. If you register before August 27th you will get $5 off the regular ticket price.
So go register now, and mark your calendars for September 10th!
The WordCamp SLC 2011 call for speakers is out. Have something that you are passionate about regarding WordPress? This is a great opportunity to share!
In following with the trend to name WordCamp events in a more region specific fashion, WordCamp Utah is now WordCamp SLC. The date is set – September 10th – so mark your calendars now.
I’m looking forward to another exciting event, last year we were very fortunate to have a great location at the University of Utah. With wifi that worked the whole time and plenty of power outlets under the seats, it worked out really well. For 2011 we’ll be returning to the UoU, in the Skaggs Biology Building. Maps are available at http://2011.slc.wordcamp.org/location/.
Additional details will be posted at the official WordCamp SLC 2011 blog and WCSLC Twitter account. The hash tag for the event is #wcslc
We’ll be putting out a call for speakers soon, and tickets should go one sale in the next week or so. Mark September 10th on your calendars and come spend the day with other local WordPress fans, users, designers, and developers!
As noted on the WCUT blog, Bluehost is sponsoring the lunch for WordCamp Utah 2010. James over at Bluehost was great, he wanted to make sure they played a big role in making this a successful event, and covering lunch definitely counts. Having great sponsors (check out the folks in the sidebar at http://2010.utah.wordcamp.org/) make this process so much easier.
Catering for lunch is from The SugarHouse BBQ Company, which makes me hungry just thinking about it. The lunch plans are based on the current estimates for the number of people attending, but we can adjust that if we need to, I’d be happy to order more food :-) .
If you are still on the fence on attending check out the schedule for the day, along with brief bio’s for each speaker. The cost for the whole day is only $20, which includes lunch and t-shirt. You can register here.
I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
The keynote speaker for WordCamp Utah 2010 is the founding developer of the WordPress project himself – Matt Mullenweg. You can find out more about the rest of the speakers at http://2010.utah.wordcamp.org/speakers/.
Just a couple of weeks out from the big day (28 August 2010), if you haven’t registered yet now is the time.
