Announcing WordCamp Miami 2016

We have great news regarding our eighth WordCamp Miami – it will be held at FIU on February 19-21, 2016. We are also proud to announce the Ptah Dunbar will be stepping up as our lead coordinator this year!

We have been in the early staging of planning for the past two months, and we can’t wait to share with you what we’ve got planned. Some ideas, concepts, and workshops from previous years are being carried over but also several fresh new concepts as well.

If you want to wait and like to book travel way in advance (at least in WordCamp terms) you may already start looking at the same hotels we recommended last year.

Our call for volunteers, sponsors, and speakers will happen shortly so watch for those announcements. Here’s the best ways to keep updated:

  1. Join our public Slack channel.
  2. Join over 1000 already on our mailing list.
  3. Follow us @wordcampmiami on Twitter.

Be A Part of WordCamp Miami 2016

As of this writing we are literally days away from officially announcing our WordCamp Miami 2016 dates.

This past month we have been starting up the “event engine” which means waking up the coordinators and inviting new ones to increase the energy and diversity of WordCamp Miami planning. If you are interested in being a high-level volunteer and coordinator, please reach out to us directly.

icon128-2xIn the meantime, we are happy to report that we are creating a new Slack team just for this event – and it’s completely open to the public. Which means are free to ask questions directly to the team, in addition to monitoring and offering feedback as we plan the event. What’s also great about this Slack team is that you can meet other future WCMIA 2016 attendees and start conversations BEFORE the event. It’s a great way to have meaningful talks at the event itself if you’ve already started talking beforehand!

Here’s where you can get an invite that gets you into our new Slack WCMIA 2016 team:
