Speaker Submissions

WordCamp Orange County 2013 wants you! This year we’ll have two tracks with each session running 40-45 minutes for a total of 16 sessions. Topics can include, but certainly aren’t limited to plugins, themes, child themes, custom post types, MultiSite, BuddyPress, bbPress, SEO, optimization, code, core, trac, trunk, LESS/SASS, memberships, and all things WordPress.  Have an idea for a presentation? Have several ideas? Keep submitting, we are looking for diversity and passion! Also see the list below the form for a growing list of attendee suggested topics.

We will select and notify speakers around the beginning of may.  Due to the high volume of submissions we won’t be able to select all candidates, but we will be sure to let all candidates know of the final selection. Whether selected or not, we do thank you for your submission.

Suggestions from Attendees:

  • “Would love to see some kind of workshop about corporate blogging best practices and how best to leverage WordPress to reinforce brand.”
  • “I ‘ve been having a lot of issues with security against malware on my WP sites. A session or two on WP security would be great.”

  • “Business tracks!” and “A business panel”
  • “Building mobile apps with WordPress. We all know that WordPress is a great CMS for building websites. But what about alternate front ends?”
