WordCamp NYC 2010

Call for Speakers!

This is it! Finally we’re taking speaker proposals. If you think you should be on stage at WordCamp NYC, please copy and paste the following form into a comment and fill in each field. Feel free to suggest people as speakers that you’ve seen before or would like to see, and to reply to speaker proposals in the comments with feedback. We’re putting more emphasis on local speakers this year, so if you know some local WordPress rockstars in the NYC Metro area, send ‘em our way. Topics of interest: Using WordPress, developing for WordPress, themes, plugins, integration with other apps, cool WP case studies, BuddyPress, etc. Please post your proposal no later than Sunday, September 12. Hit the comments!

Instructions for Buying Tickets

We're using a new WordPress plugin for selling tickets, developed pro bono by 9seeds. If you have signed up to be a sponsor or have applied to be a speaker, please do not buy a ticket until you hear from Jane (by Sept 27, honest), as you'll need to use a special code to register if confirmed. If you're not sponsoring/speaking, go ahead and buy a Regular Admission ticket.

If you only buy one ticket, you'll fill in your attendee info right away. If you buy multiple tickets (like for a bunch of people from your company), you'll just fill in the billing info now, and you'll get an email with links for each attendee to go and fill in their own attendee profile (t-shirt size, email address, twitter ID, etc). This is a new system, so if you have trouble purchasing tickets, email jane/wordcamp/org for help.

P.S. The form styling will be fixed in the next plugin update. Beta, baby! :)
