After the successful WordCamp Manila in 2016, we’re back and calling for speakers for 2017.

WordCamp Manila, like all WordCamps, is an event run by the local community to share all things WordPress. We bring together bloggers, designers, developers, small business owners and entrepreneurs who are passionate about the web and digital, and we want you to share your knowledge with our community.

Whether you are an expert, a beginner, a blogger, a designer, a developer, a marketer, a business owner or a WP enthusiast, you can speak at WordCamp Manila.

Full length sessions will be approximately 20-30 minutes long, with 5-10 minutes afterward for audience questions. Talks can be in English or Filipino.

We’re interested in the following areas:

  • Running a WordPress site. Cool things you can do with WordPress themes and plugins.
  • Latest news. We want to hear the future and cutting-edge inner workings in WordPress like the upcoming REST API, shiny features in the customizer, etc
  • Development. Coding talks aimed at new to medium developers to help improve their skills.
  • UX and Design. Building sites with striking designs, accessibility and improving user experience.

    (This is not an exhaustive list, if you have an idea that isn’t mentioned above, we would still love to hear from you, contact us if you wish to discuss your talk beforehand.)

Remember, you don’t have to be an expert to talk at a WordCamp. We want to hear thoughts from all areas of the WordPress community, so we would be keen to hear from you even if you’ve never spoke before.
