WordPress Hangout #15: All Things WordCamp w/ Andrea Middleton

Andrea-MiddletonThis week, Suzette Franck of (mt) Media Temple and Natalie MacLees of Purple Pen Productions will be talking with Andrea Middleton, Dot Organizer of Automattic about all things WordCamp.

Aired at 11:00 PDT on Thursday, June 19th.

Andrea will talk your ear off about wine, food, literature of all sorts, parenting, and anything else she thinks she knows a lot about. She’s lived in 5 states in the US and spent 5 years in Mexico City and the US Virgin Islands, respectively. When not engaging in WordPress community organizing high-jinks, she can be found juggling her two kids – almost never literally – and wondering what to make for dinner.


 

“Submitting and Presenting at WordCamps” – SoCal Meetup

With Los Angeles WordCamp fast approaching, this talk is aimed at inspiring and providing tips to first-time speakers on how to submit and prepare for a WordCamp Presentation. I have spoken at 18 WordCamps in the past 2 years and I hope to motivate new talent in the presentations that are given at all WordCamps.
