WordPress Users, Experts Gather in Nashville September 17-18 WordCamp conference targets all levels, plus site and business owners
NASHVILLE TN - August 2: Over 300 people who use WordPress - ranging from true beginners to advanced developers - will gather September 17-18 for WordCamp Nashville 2016.
The two-day learning and networking event, the fifth annual conference of its kind in Nashville, celebrates WordPress itself and the large global support community around it.
Sessions are curated by a team of volunteer community organizers, and this year’s event spans two days rather than one and has more local speakers and local sponsors than ever.
"The expansion of our event to two days is a direct result of the overwhelming growth that Nashville - and WordPress - is experiencing right now," says D'nelle Dowis, the conference's lead organizer. "We're extremely lucky to have such a supportive & thriving local WordPress community. This event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to come together and connect with each other in person."
WordPress is free and open-source publishing software admired by fans for its ease of use, flexibility and ability to customize. The platform drives websites of major companies such as Best Buy mobile, TechCrunch and BBC America; to celebrity sites, including Katy Perry and LL Cool J; to single-author blogs; and everything in between.
WordCamp Nashville is part of a much bigger picture. WordPress powers more than 1 of every 4 websites worldwide. Each year, volunteers in cities across the globe organize WordCamps to share best practices and their expertise.
The Music City event, at joint venues Deavor/redpepper in the Capitol District, will feature 18 to 24 sessions in four “tracks” based on skill level and area of interest, though attendees are not locked into any track. New this year is a track centered on WordPress in higher education, curated by MTSU’s Todd O’Neill. Both days will feature a Help Desk with volunteers offering one-on-one assistance on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sunday will feature longer, in-depth how-to classes and a day-long “Core Contribution” activity where attendees will learn how they can give back to the WordPress community.
Expect a crowd that loves tech, problem-solving, entrepreneurship and business. The event is entirely volunteer-run and speakers are not paid. WordCamps are run under the auspices of the WordPress Foundation.
Tickets are $40 and include lunch on Saturday, coffee & snacks both days, camp branded swag and admission to a party off-site Saturday evening. For more information visit https://2016.nashville.wordcamp.org or contact the planning team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
