Yay – we’ve confirmed all of our core speakers for WordCamp Sydney 2014 and an awesome bunch they are too.

You can check out the schedule here.

For all of those who submitted a speaker proposal but didn’t get chosen, don’t feel sad.  The quality and choice of topics this year was great making it difficult to narrow down.

If you’re still keen to talk at WordCamp Sydney then we are still looking for Lightning Talk speakers!

Call for Lightning Talk Speakers

Were you thinking about talking at WordCamp Sydney but didn’t quite want to speak for 40 minutes?

We understand – so here’s your chance!

Introducing <drum roll> The Call for Lightning Talk Speakers… </drum roll>

What are Lightning Talks?

Lightning talks have proved very successful at our local meetups.

They are 5 to 10 minute talks on any WordPress topic you feel like sharing.

Soooo…  you may want to talk about that one amazeballs plugin that you can’t do without.  Or what about the rockin’ theme you’ve just used on your latest blog or website?

Perhaps you just found a WordPress function that has made your life that little bit better?  Or just made gazzads of wonga monetising some WordPress blogs (please please tell us how!)

Anything you want to talk about.  Seriously, anything – as long as it’s:

  1. legal & family friendly
  2. loosely has something to do with using WordPress

You don’t need any fancy schmancy slides – but you can if you want to.

Here’s what’ll happen on the day…

We give you a mic.  You talk for 5-10 minutes.  That’s the score.

Do it!

Call for Sponsors

WordCamps are held regionally all across the world and each Camp is supported and attended not  just by the local WordPress community, but also by people from all over the country and even the world who travel just to take part and experience the unique flavor that each location adds to their local WordCamp. As a sponsor, you’ll gain exposure to a unique, diverse crowd of developers, designers, content creators, and beginners.

WordCamp Sydney is a not-for-profit event: Our speakers travel to our conference at their own expense and are not compensated. Attendees at similar tech conferences spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to attend, but at WordCamp Sydney, we ask each attendee to pay just $50. What makes that possible? Our generous sponsors!

If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, please apply to get started.
