BuddyCamp Miami has been going on for the past two years in Miami. The first year, we had about 100 attend. In 2014, that number was close to 150. Lead organizers of BuddyPress even call Miami the unofficial home of BuddyCamps (are we misquoting? probably). Last year the drinking glasses almost got as much attention as the conference. Although AppPressor made it’s debut of AppBuddy Mobile at BuddyCamp Miami last year.

So let’s do it again.
What Is A BuddyCamp?
BuddyCamp is a mini-conference (a conference inside a conference – almost inception-like) that focuses on the BuddyPress and bbPress plugins. This unique conference focuses on how you can use these plugins as you use WordPress to build sites for you or your clients.
As of now, the schedule follows a traditional WordCamp format, with beginner sessions along with designer / developer presentations. Key people and contributors will be speaking, answering questions, and hanging out.
Looking For Speakers
Are you be interested in being a presenter at BuddyCamp? Perhaps you’re a BuddyPress developer or if you want to show off your BuddyPress site? Send in your applications as you would any other WordCamp Miami speaker presentation (and note it’s a presentation for BuddyCamp).
General speaker details are available on our speaker submission page. Deadline for submissions will be the same as WordCamp speaker submissions (and we will update this post when that is announced).
Many details are being worked out, so the sooner you submit your speaker application the better we can plan.
What is the date for BuddyCamp Miami 2015?
The date has not 100% in stone – but right now it’s been set for May 29th, 2015 (a Friday) which fits with past years where we have had the event prior to WordCamp Miami’s weekend.
