Keynoting WordCamp Kent 2020

I’m not shy when it comes to talking about my love for WordCamp Kent (formerly WordCamp NEO, WordCamp North Canton), which has become one of my can’t-miss WordCamps over the past few years. You can imagine my excitement, then, when Lead Organizer David Brattoli reached out and asked if I’d be interested in keynoting WordCamp Kent 2020.

This year, I’ll be changing up my usual “give a couple tech-heavy presentations” approach and instead be giving a brand new keynote, The World Beyond WordPress, focusing on how we in the WordPress community can learn from other communities.

I did a whole interview with the WordCamp Kent 2020 organizers, which is available on the conference website.

Seriously: the last few years have seen keynotes from the likes of Chris Lema, Carrie Dils, Michelle Frechette, and Eric Meyer — the bar has definitely been set high, but I’m honored to add my name to that list.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WordCamp Kent will also be online for the first time. While I’m sad I won’t get to make the drive up to Kent, this also means that WordCamp Kent 2020 will be free to attend! Get your free ticket today, and I’ll see you online!
