Big news for Miami – BuddyCamp is coming to South Florida!
Yes, you heard that right! The second ever BuddyCamp (and the first one in the United States) is taking place in Miami, Florida on Friday, April 5th. The schedule should follow a traditional WordCamp format, with beginner sessions in the morning with designer and developer presentations in the afternoon. John James Jacoby (@JJJ on Twitter), a core contributor to BuddyPress and bbPress, will be down for a session and update us on the latest.
BuddyCamp will be partnering with WordCamp Miami, which is being held on Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7th, at Ai Miami International University of Art & Design. So for the first time in the history of WordCamp Miami, we will be holding a THREE day event filled with WordPress and BuddyPress knowledge.
Looking for Speakers!
Are you be interested in being a presenter at BuddyCamp? Applications are open! Full details are available on our speaker submission page. Although the deadline for WordCamp Miami speaker submissions is Feb. 6th, 2013 we will be making exceptions for applications to speak at BuddyCamp. We are playing this by ear, so the sooner you submit BuddyPress or social network related sessions the better we can plan.
