Business owners, bloggers, designers, developers, and other advocates of WordPress will gather at the Innevation Center located at 6795 Edmond Street on Saturday, Dec. 13 and Sunday, Dec. 14 to learn, discuss and network at the 6th Annual WordCamp Las Vegas.
WordCamps are casual, locally-organized, non-profit conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open source content-management software that powers over 75 million sites on the web. WordCamps come in all different flavors, based on the local communities that produce them. In Las Vegas, that means great speakers from our local community as well as experts from around the country, showcasing the talent and prestige of the Las Vegas technology and business communities.
This year’s theme is Uniting the Developer and Business Communities with WordPress. According to Andrew DiMino, lead organizer for WordCamp Las Vegas, “our goal this year is to showcase the bloggers and small businesses that run on WordPress and the local tech businesses that develop and design for it and introduce them together so they can learn from each other as well as learn how they can work together.” WordPress is the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.
The non-profit event, which sold out last year, will bring together WordPress enthusiasts from across the country to share best practices and strategies for a wide variety of businesses. WordCamp Las Vegas will showcase the talent present in Southern Nevada. Local and national speakers scheduled to appear include:
• Chris Lema, How to Build a Brand with a Blog
• John Lynn, Next Generation Monetization Opportunities with WordPress
• Rebecca Gill, Crafting the Perfect Home Page
• Konstantin Obenland, What’s New In WordPress 4.1
• Joseph Herbrandson, 7 Deadly Sins of WordPress Security
Registration is $40 for both days. The camp will run from 8 AM to 5:45 PM on Saturday and 9 AM to 5:45 PM on Sunday. Join in the discussion online with the Twitter hashtag #wclv2014.
