We’re pleased to announce that Heart Internet are, for the third year in a row, sponsoring WordCamp London, happening on April 13th, 14th, and 15th at the London Metropolitan University.
In its fifth year, WordCamp London is a great opportunity for the UK WordPress community to get together and discuss ideas, share knowledge, and express their love of WordPress. WordCamp London is the largest WordCamp in the UK, and whether you’re just starting out or developing hundreds of WordPress sites, a WordCamp is an absolutely perfect place to get more involved.
And with 45 speakers across three tracks, there are plenty of talks covering all sorts of topics. Here are just five we’re excited about:
GDPR: Of Privacy and Compliance by Toyin Agunbiade
Saturday, Track B, 11:50
This workshop will go through what GDPR means, how it will affect your business, and how you need to ensure compliance. With GDPR coming into effect on 25 May, this is definitely one workshop you won’t want to miss.
How we’re using WordPress as a Headless CMS by Benjamin Read
Saturday, Track A, 15:00
Headless (or decoupled) content management systems are becoming a hot topic in the web performance field. By using a CMS only in the back end, you can provide personalised content no matter the display medium. Benjamin talk about how what they are, how you can use WordPress as a headless CMS, and the tools and processes you can use to build your own headless site.
Build Relationships, Not Websites by Nemanja Aleksic
Sunday, Track C, 13:30
You’ve completed your client’s website, but have you thought about what more you could do? In this talk, Nemanja will discuss how you can set up a recurring revenue stream by building not just one-off websites, but regular relationships with your clients.
Content Security Policies: Let’s Break Stuff by Matt Brunt
Sunday, Track B, 14:30
Security is always a hot topic at WordCamps, and as WordPress grows in popularity, it’s only going to get more so. Matt will get into Content Security Policies, and what they can block, what happens when it’s broken, and the tools available to help you implement them on your site.
Developing WordPress for Limited Bandwidth by Daine Mawer
Sunday, Track C, 14:30
Developing countries tend to have poor internet infrastructure, meaning that every user experience needs to be incredibly optimised. Daine will talk about the processes, workflows, and optimisations that you need to consider when branching out into these exciting new markets.
Add on to that the incredibly fun social event on Saturday evening, the variety of sponsors, including Jetpack, WooCommerce, Yoast, and us (of course!), the brand new Gutenbar discussion group on Sunday to discuss the Project Gutenberg WordPress editor, and the chance to participate in WordPress development with the Contributor Day on Friday, 13 April, and it’s three days full of WordPress.
Tickets are still available, and since they’re only £40, they are going extremely fast, so you should get your tickets now.
