Our speaker line up this year is talented, diverse, and coming in from far and wide.
We’ve got speakers from as far away as Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Costa Rica, all bringing their own flavors to the WordCamp stone soup.
Hilary Fosdal, owner of Red Phone Studio in Chicago is a seasoned WordCamp speaker who has given presentations in Chicago, St. Louis and at the recent US WordCamp. Her topics are varied but they always center around good communication between client and web designer. For our WordCamp she’ll be talking about project management.
Jeff Wells, the furtherest traveller is coming from Costa Rica to talk about using the WordPress API. Jeff is an organizer of Costa Rica WordPress Meetups and the lead developer on a project that involves Sport fishing and using the WP Rest API to send and receive data between a native app and a WordPress installation. The project also uses the Rest API to port the videos from the WordPress installation back out to an AppleTV app.
Based out of Cincinnati, Ohio we’ve got Danny Santoro who will be speaking about using WordPress as a Framework. Danny spoken at a dozen WordCamps in the past two years in Dayton, Philadelphia, Columbus, and Las Vegas among others. He had his own freelance company before going to work for WooThemes and now works for Automattic in their Woocommerce division.
Marjorie Asturias brings her many years of expertise in running a social media and content marketing agency to her talk on Marketing Your Business With WordPress. She now works for Automattic and has spoken at many WordCamps and other conferences in and around her home state of Texas. She’ll also share her experiences working with non-profit organizations in a panel discussion.
This is just a small sample of the diverse topics and interesting locations our WordCamp speakers will be bringing.
