People like us, they really like us!

It’s been a little over a week since we all said our goodbye’s (for now!). A few folks took some time to share their experiences from WordCamp St. Louis with us all. Have a read and reminisce.

Taylor Bartley from UMSL shared a nice recap of the event.

Attendee and frequent writer at WP Tavern, Jeff Chandler shared his adventures.

Speaker Brian Goldstein’s round up is quite nice.

Our own organizer and speaker, Lucas Lima, wrote about his experiences as well – in Portuguese.

Neal Jenney’s review has the best quote from a 9 year old WordPresser.

Jason Yingling, a speaker and local WordPress person, had some nice things to say as well.

Look Your Best at WordCamp St. Louis

With only a scant few weeks left until WordCamp St. Louis 2015, we wanted to share with you the design for our conference t-shirt. All attendees will receive one of these beautifully designed shirts from Anda Creative.

WordCamp St. Louis T-Shirt Mockup

Pretty snazzy, eh? If you haven’t bought your ticket yet, now is the time. We’ve already sold over half our allotment and last year we sold out a week in advance!

Volunteers and speakers – we have something extra special for you. But that’s a secret. 🙂

This year the second day of WordCamp is our community day. One of the sessions we’re proud to bring is our Kids Camp. WordCamp attendees are encouraged to bring the young people in their lives to learn about WordPress and publishing on the web. We’ll spend the morning covering the basics of WordPress, free and open source software, copyright, and what it means to be public on the web.

We’ll end the morning with lunch from Pi Pizza and our keynote with Mika Epstein!

It will be a relaxed affair. Come as you are, but be sure to bring a laptop! For more information check out the Kids Camp session on the schedule and get your tickets today! (Note, only one adult ticket is needed if you’re bringing multiple kids. Sweet!)

WordCamp St. Louis 2015 will be held March 14-15 at Washington University. Tickets are $25 and cover both days. The first day will be filled with two tracks (Developer/User).

We have some great speakers lined up this year. Attractive, eloquent, funny, knowledgeable, and smart folks from across the St. Louis community will be joined by WordPressers from various corners of the globe to bring you the best WordCamp in St. Louis.

The goals of any WordCamp – but you know, ours especially – is to bring together great people and foster a community where everyone is free to learn and share. Any WordPresser – blogger, designer, developer, small business owner, writer – is welcome. We know you’ll have a great time.

Get your tickets while they last. We had over 250 attendees last year and sold out a week in advance. This year we anticipate the same!
