Schedule

This year we’re not allocating rooms to a specific track.  In order to make it easier to get the most out of your WordCamp experience we’ve assigned one of three categories to each session.

▉▉ Beginner

These sessions are suitable for those without any programming or specific WordPress knowlege. Ideal for those just starting out on their WordPress journey and looking to get a jump start.

▉▉ Business

These sessions will help you to apply techniques around the WordPress related business you use to make money. Great for those looking to skill up in business matters and avoid some of the pitfalls that others have endured.

▉▉ Technical

These sessions assume your techincal knowledge is good either from a development or IT systems point of view. There will likely be programming code displayed and terms such as “API”, “nginx” and “Twizzlers” being used. You have been warned! 😛
