WordTech! 2018

Update March 27, 2018: Speakers just received word that due to low ticket sales and sponsorship, WordTech! won’t be happening this year.

I’m proud to announce that I’ll be giving my Writing WP-CLI Commands That Work! talk at the inaugural WordTech! conference this Star Wars Day (May 4, 2018) in Toronto.

While this is a brand-new conference, I have a special attachment to it: Lead Organizer Peter MacIntyre (one of the organizers of Northeast PHP) reached out to Eric Mann and I all the way back in January of 2017 about organizing a new, development-focused WordPress conference; he noted that WordCamps often cater to the broadest range of developers, meaning it’s rare for a camp to have more than a few “advanced” development talks. While I’m a fan of development-oriented WordPress conferences (such as LoopConf), I don’t have the bandwidth to help organize a conference. I told Peter that I’d still be happy to submit when the CFP is open. Fast forward a year or so, and I’m excited to be among the inaugural batch of speakers!
