Keynote Address: The WordPress Project, it’s all about YOU
What comes to mind when you think about ‘The WordPress Project’? Have you ever heard the expression?
For most people the first thing that springs to mind is probably the software, the core WordPress files you download to get WordPress up and running on your site. What you may not be aware of is the hive of activity around it that goes well and truly beyond the software. And even if you’re not a software developer, theme builder or code nerd, there’s a place for you in the bigger picture.
Dee will look at what the WordPress project looks like, introduce some of the people who are involved in it at various levels in Australia and will show you where you could get involved, whatever your skill level, and wherever your interests lie.
Dee Teal is a front end developer working primarily with the Genesis Theme framework building sites for small to medium business and under contract to a few local agencies. She’s been using WordPress exclusively for at least 5 years having had her mind blown with its possibilities at her first WordCamp, WordCamp Melbourne in 2011. Since then she’s been a sold out advocate of WordPress meetups, WordCamps and the WordPress community as a whole.
Dee has a Masters Degree in Digital Communication and Culture from the University of Sydney and can be found at http://thewebprincess.com or on Twitter as (predictably) @thewebprincess
