WordCamp Miami 2016 is coming to Miami next weekend

WordCamp Miami 2016, a tech conference, is back in Miami from February 19-21. South Florida’s longest running non-profit tech conferences (It’s the 8th year WordCamp has been in Miami) is designed for WordPress users, bloggers, content creators, SEO, designers, marketing folks, and developers to hone their blogging skills. It doesn’t matter, if you’re an established blogger, a WordPress aficionado or just starting out in the blogosphere, #WCMIA 2016 has something for everyone –from classes for kids to talks that are all about the code that runs your WordPress blog.

What’s happening at WordCamp Miami 2016

There’s too much to list here and WordCamp’s website is obviously the place to go (quickly, since they always sell out of tickets). Nile Flores –a fellow WordCamp speaker– has put together a great blog post on what to look forward to at WordCamp Miami 2016. She highlights some interesting details about this conference and some the speakers that will be sharing their knowledge at this conference.

Here’s an excerpt from blondish.net:

Ptah says that attendees should bring the following: “Bring a friend or two! Learning new ideas and connecting with friends is always a good time. Also, bring pocket notebook and pen to carry with you (leave your laptop at the hotel), for notoriously writing down actionable advice from all the really smart people you’ll be meeting over be next 24-48-72 hours (depending on how long you stay) and their Twitter handles.”

Dunbar also mentioned, “And finally don’t forget to set aside time to enjoy the beach and explore Miami! Keep an eye on the #wcmia slack channel as we’ll be sharing announcements like things to do and other surprises throughout the 18th-21st.”
