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:
“WordCamp Miami is expected to bring in well over 800 attendees, according to one of the WordCamp Miami organizer’s, David Bisset. He also says that some of the things that attendees can look forward to seeing is the kids activities.
Bisset says “There’s a lot of kids activities like the Saturday Workshop, Sunday STEAM activities, and the Kid’s Panel at the end of Sunday.”
Ptah Dunbar, the lead organizer of WordCamp Miami 2016, says that attendees should look foward to the JavaSscript Track on Sunday. He says, “We’ve got a great lineup of quality speakers.”
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.”
What kind of talks to expect at WordCamp Miami 2016
The WordCamp Miami 2016 has put an amazing schedule filled with a variety talks. I’m almost certain nearly every area of WordPress is being covered!
Pascal Depuhl, an award-winning visual content creator at Photography by Depuhl, is going to be presenting about How to Shoot the Perfect Video. Depuhl says, “”How do you Shoot the Perfect Video” is geared toward anyone who wants to wrap their head around what actually makes a video stand out from the pack. Since I’m talking about this at WordCamp, I figured that a great video is like a great blog post: You need an intro that peaks curiosity; a body that tells a great story and a conclusion compeling the viewer to act. I’ll also share the one super-secret ingredient, vital in creating mind-changing visual content.”
Pascal mentions that, “I’ve been producing award-winning short corporate documentary films for my clients since 2012 (although I’ve been creating photographs for over 25 years). Come to think of it, that was the same year I went to Afghanistan to film my first documentary “On Wings of Hope”.”
Pascal also said that WordCamp Miami is also bringing back the free mini-video this year. “It’s where any one who wants to have a short 20-30 sec video created can sign up and we’ll shoot them for free.”
