WordCamp: Developers ramping up for May 5 in Vancouver, speakers announced


If you’re in the Vancouver, BC area (or love to travel) and just love learning aboot WordPress development, WordCamp: Developers is probably right up your alley. Developers is this year’s WordCamp Vancouver, and is focused solely on (big surprise here) WordPress developers. The topics that will be covered at the conference include HTML5 and CSS3, forums, multisite, e-commerce, HTML5 video, and information architecture.

Just a guess here, but I bet some of the presentations will include code samples. Maybe one or two.

There are a number of very high profile WordPress developers that will be speaking, including Toby McKes of Cheezburger Networks, Justin Sainton a core developer of WP E-Commerce, Brendan Sera-Shriar of Vanilla Forums and nine other professionals. There will be two tracks, one for UX (or user experience) and one for development. There are a number of great talks that are scheduled, but my favorites have to be:

  • “Possibly the Strangest WordPress Project You’ve Ever Seen in Your Life” and
  • “Adrift in a sea of templates. Or, how to be different – like everyone else”

The conference is May 5th and there are about 100 tickets left at $40 CAD, down from $45 CAD thanks to new sponsors of the event. You can register on the WordCamp: Developers site.

So who’s excited about a WordCamp focused on developers? Have you ever attended a WordCamp and felt there wasn’t enough material for you as a developer?
