Call for Speakers

Talks for all skill levels will be considered, and a presentation on things you learned setting up your very first website can be just as valuable as a technical walk-through of how custom fields are implemented within WordPress.

We’re also looking to put together a show-and-tell segment, where you can tell a story of how your WordPress website evolved over time. This will be great for anyone looking to gain some speaking experience!

What is WordCamp?

WordCamp Singapore is a community event that brings together bloggers, developers, designers, artists, small business owners, entrepreneurs, and educators from Singapore and all across Asia. We would like to have WordCamp Singapore represent the passion, talent, and diversity of our community, and we want you to be a part of it!

What We Look For

We do NOT require you to be famous, or an “expert”, or a programmer, or have special certification or anything like that. If you haven’t spoken at a conference before, don’t let that hold you back! All we ask is that you be able to present your chosen topic passionately and respectfully.

We do have some general guidelines for talks, though, and here they are: Your talk should be…

  • directly related to WordPress, or immediately applicable and relevant to our audience
  • respectful of the WordPress community, the WordCamp code of conduct, and the GPL
  • something that interests you, that you want to share!

The theme for this year is ‘Towards the future with WordPress’. We want to know what you have done anything with WordPress in the realms of Automation, Bots, AI and really just about anything that you think will form part of the future of WordPress, the web and the human species.

This can be

  • A automated writing workflow
  • A semi-automated content approval flow
  • A server provisioning script
  • Automated testing
  • Automated deployment
  • WordPress on serverless architecture
  • Home automation
  • Or more!

Take note that while there is an overall theme, we still accept and want all talks about WordPress!

Event Details

  • Talks can be either 20 or 45 minutes in length. Expect to have between 10 to 15 minutes for Q&A.
