Book it! WordCamp Nashville 2014 is set for Saturday, May 3, at Nashville School of Law.
We believe WordCamp Nashville 2014 will reflect the excitement, growth and diversity of the Middle Tennessee WordPress community.
This one-day event, organized by members of the Nashville WordPress MeetUp, will have something for everybody. As in 2013, we will have three “tracks” to accommodate new users, intermediate users and developers. We also plan an expanded Help Desk, where people can receive one-on-one assistance, and a keynote speech.
You may attend any session, regardless of experience level, but we will break sessions into three general categories.
Tickets, $20 each, are scheduled to go on sale March 24 and will include lunch and a t-shirt. Subscribe to our mailing list to stay in the loop ticket sales and other announcements, including lodging options, speaker submission deadlines, speaker selection and schedule updates.
WordCamp is all about community-building, and it takes a community to build a WordCamp. Submit an application to become a speaker or become a sponsor. Volunteers are the heart of WordCamp, and it’s not too early to sign up to help.
This is the second year we are holding the event at Nashville School of Law, 4013 Armory Oaks Drive, Nashville, TN, 37204. The venue has awesome rooms, ample parking and easy access from both Interstates 65 and 24.
So mark the date. May 3, 2014. Nashville WordCamp returns.
BECOME A SPEAKER
Wanted: WordCamp speakers who understand what WordPress users and developers want and need and can communicate it clearly. Because we want to showcase the depth of talent in Greater Nashville, preference will be given to local speakers who have not presented at other WordCamps.
Check out a list of topics submitted by local users and session descriptions from last year’s WordCamp Nashville.
BECOME A SPONSOR
WordCamps run under the auspices of the WordPress foundation a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The official event itself ends when the final sessions of the day wraps up at 4 p.m. We don’t raise extra money to run off to the beach, though additional sponsorship opportunities do exist for the speakers’ dinner and the after-party gathering.
WordPress users are a passionate and loyal group, and sponsors enjoy visibility in a crowd that loves tech, problem-solving, entrepreneurship and business. What are you waiting for?
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Without volunteers we are nothing!
Months of planning and preparation come down to 8 hours on a Saturday in May, and a cadre of awesome volunteers makes the event run smoothly. WIth enough volunteers, we can make sure they also can attend some sessions. The day of the event we’ll need help with registration, room monitoring, coffee set-up, lunch distribution and clean-up.
We can’t comp volunteer tickets but we will show our appreciation in other ways.
