Countdown to WordCamp Miami 2016

I am Attending WordCamp Miami 2016COUNTDOWN TO WORDCAMP MIAMI 2016

I’ve made my reservations and I’ve got my tickets – I’m all set for WordCamp Miami! I am signed up for the  Freelancer’s Workshop. To follow will be two days of fascination, donuts, and information overload.

WordCamp is a professional development opportunity for those who use the WordPress website platform. Pre-conference workshops offer the opportunity to deep-dive into a particular area of study. Conference sessions provide new inspiration and ideas. I finally took the plunge this past fall; I attended WordCamp Tampa and never regretted it.

The speaker list for Miami shows that there is some overlap with WordCamp Tampa. There are also speakers I’ve never seen or heard before. I haven’t gone through the session schedule yet, but I think that’s a task best left until finalization.  There will be a “How To” track, a “Content and Design” track, and a “Developer’s” track on the first day. The second day will feature tracks called “Business”, “All Users”, and “Learning Javascript Deeply”.

In the Freelancer’s Workshop, I’m  interested in the sessions on pricing, taxes, and profits.  The Q&A panel should be useful as well. This WordCamp will also feature a workshop for beginners, as well as a BuddyCamp.

During the conference proper, I predict that the Business track will prove useful to me. Much of the Business track content is applicable to the non-WordPress aspects of my business. I build, secure, and maintain simple brochure sites for small businesses. I am also a corporate consultant, practicing the information risk and security management disciplines. I want to grow the WordPress part of my business beyond the small handful of clients I’ve collected thus far.

Here in Florida, we are fortunate to have three WordCamp opportunities within driving distance of one another.  Although dates have not yet been announced for Orlando, I’m eagerly looking forward to it. I am, after all, an annual passholder to multiple theme parks in that area.
