WordCamp DFW 2017 will be held on November 11-12 at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, the organizing committee announced on August 10. This is the first time WordCamp DFW has been held over the course of two days.
“WordCamp DFW has sold out every year since its revival in 2014, so this year we are hoping to make the most out of this once-a-year event,” lead organizer Marc Gratch said.
WordCamp DFW, re-started in 2014, is one of 740 WordCamps held in the United States and around the world. WordCamps feature talks about everything WordPress, the free and open source personal publishing software that powers over 75 million sites on the web.
Talks range anywhere from blogging, to development with WordPress, to running a business with the content management system. Anyone, from beginners to veteran users who have been using WordPress for years, are welcome to learn more and share ideas.
Tickets for WordCamp DFW 2017 are currently on sale for $40. To apply to speak at WordCamp DFW, please fill out the application. Topics can cover everything involving WordPress, such as web content strategy, user experience, diversity, blogging, business, development, and community. Talks outside of the WordPress realm, such as project management and how the web has changed your life, are also welcome.
Located in the Medical Education & Training (MET) Building at 1000 Montgomery Street, the UNT Health Science Center is situated near the growing 7th Street area and the museum district. It also hosts the monthly Fort Worth WordPress Users Meetup.
“This year’s WordCamp DFW is strongly focused on community,” Gratch said. “The local WordPress community, local government, nonprofits, etc. So it seemed very fitting to have this year’s event at a venue that has graciously hosted our local Meetup for 3 years. In subsequent years, we will choose a Dallas venue for WordCamp DFW as well as investigate hosting the event in surrounding cities.”
