Because of COVID-19, almost all WordPress events have gone virtual. This essentially erases geographic boundaries for all of us and gives us access to more events we wouldn’t otherwise attend. Here are online meetup links to find events and topics that interest you.
WordCamp Santa Clarita is back, this time as a virtual event on April 18th! Their full schedule is now available (all times listed in UTC-8) on their website, and you can register for a free ticket here.
The Community Team proposed and approved some new guidelines for virtual events in 2020, including support for regional/country events. The first of these will be WordCamp Spain on May 6 – May 9! This WordCamp will bring Spanish speakers around the world together to create what is sure to be a memorable virtual event. The team is currently putting together the schedule, so for the latest updates, follow #WCES or their website.
After deciding to postpone WordCamp Europe in Porto this year, the organizing team decided to bring the biggest WordCamp in Europe fully online, including Contributor Day! The event will be on June 4 – June 6, and you can get the latest updates on their website, or by following #WCEU. Looking ahead, mark your calendars for June 3-5, 2021 for the rescheduled WordCamp Europe 2021 in Porto!
Diverse Speaker Workshop and Diverse Speaker Group Coaching
Want to become a WordCamp or WordPress Meetup speaker? The Diverse Speaker Training Group (#WPDiversity) is hosting a number of workshops! We are in the middle of the first, three-part workshop, but you can still join for the last session tomorrow on Online Stage Presence (for more information and to register, visit this post).
The next training will be a group coaching session on April 28th and April 30th. This event will help provide tips and guidance on anything related to public speaking at WordPress events, such as your title and pitch, practicing public speaking, answering Q&A questions you are worried people will ask, and more! If you are a member of a marginalized or underrepresented group in terms of gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, age, etc, and are interested in participating, please register for the coaching sessions!
All the upcoming online events from WordPress meetup groups are shown on this page – times will be shown in your local time zone unless otherwise noted. Feel free to participate in any event to see what other meetup groups are doing!
