How to start a WordCamp
/

Are you part of a local WordPress meetup and you’re interested in growing that into an annual WordCamp? Or maybe you’re generally interested in what goes on behind the scenes for our heroic organizers?

If so, I’ve brought on David Bisset and Ptah Dunbar, part of the organizing team for WordCamp Miami 2016 to chat about their experiences planning their next event. They’ve been successfully involved with the Miami Meetup & WordCamp for the last 8 years, which is quite the milestone. Kudos to them and their contributing team for keeping an amazing group running for such a span of time.

We were a bit short on time, so this is quite the lightning round discussion where we provide tips for an organizing a team, how WordCamps can break down (technical) barriers, and how we hope to make a real impact within local communities.

If you’re looking to make an official start, check out the Become an Organizer page on the WordCamp planning site.
