Now Accepting Early Speaker Submissions

Although event dates in April are not officially confirmed (please read our post on this), there are some that wish to submit speaker submission requests as soon as possible. These are usually fairly sure they will attend WordCamp Miami – either they come every year, or they live close to the area. In either case, we are opening up speaker submissions now. Once dates are confirmed, we will send out a notice to everyone who submitted a proposal.

All the information you need to know – including the link to submit a speaker proposal – is located here.

We welcome back anyone who has attended and spoken at WordCamp Miami in the past – repeat speakers welcome! On the other hand, we are looking especially for those who might not have spoken at WordCamp Miami before – or perhaps those wanting to make WordCamp Miami their first speaking conference!

We are looking for unique and interesting topics that beginners, advanced users, or both would be interested in (and that relate to WordPress in some way – read this page).

When submitting proposals, please assume at this time you will have 30 minutes for your session, plus some brief time to answer questions. Also assume your talk will be recorded, so you will have to sign a media release before giving your presentation.

At this time, deadline for speaker submissions in February 12th, 2013.

Update: We have closed comments here because we want people submitting proposals via our official form rather than anything official in the comments section. Thanks!

    We were discussing how Syed’s talk at Orlando WordCamp sparked so much interest to the advanced track because so many advanced WP devs are horrible or at least insecure in their business abilities and inefficient at running their business. I’d like to help those people out and would even be interested in more Q&A than presenting because it’s such a fluid topic.

    I could discuss contracts/scope, pricing, customer service/relations, client retention, choosing the right tools (ala Chris Coyier’s post on overhead running his business), work/life balance (Bill Erickson would be another one to tap for that), collecting/billing, or income streams as a WP dev.
