This week, I’m attending WP Campus 18 in St. Louis, MO. For the conference, presenters are encouraged to create some sort of online artifact (usually a WP site) to share their slides and resources. Here’s mine.
I’m really impressed by the conference in terms of some of the organizational things they are doing.
- Online artifacts
- Almost all of the talks are live-streamed and recorded, and kept open on the schedule page for the conference.
- Before each talk, the organizers give a brief talk about the online audience and reasserting the Code of Conduct.
- There are nightly events for networking.
- Lunch is on site and they set up ‘birds of a feather’ tables.
Pretty much everything about the conference is going well. Their website (in WP obviously) has a ton of information for attendees and some cool features in how it’s built. There are things about the conference that wouldn’t work at scale, but I’m taking a lot of notes on things that I want to borrow for my other conferences.
