We’re happy to announce that Heart Internet are again sponsors of WordCamp Brighton, happening on August 18th and 19th at The Old Market.
Running for its second year, WordCamp Brighton is a chance for the WordPress community to get together to discuss ideas, share knowledge, and express their love of WordPress. If you’re just starting out or if you run hundreds of WordPress sites, a WordCamp is a great place to get more involved.
With workshops and talks covering a wide range of topics, all on a single track so you don’t have to worry about missing out, it’s going to be an exciting time. Here are just five we’re excited about:
How to politely market your digital product by Izzy Crouch
There’s lot of information available on how to market a digital product, but it can be near impossible to put into practice for anyone other than the most outgoing extroverts. Izzy will provide some methods that are easy to put into practice without needing a personality change.
WordPress business toolkit by David Lockie
In this workshop, which will include practical exercises, David will explore how you can look after your business interests while also delivering amazing work for your clients. Whether identifying pain points, looking for new ways to tackle challenges, or just getting advice, this workshop will be fantastic for anyone who wants to run better projects.
Pursuing your creative passion: turn your side hustle into a full-time gig by Katie Elenberger
Katie started out doing freelance as a side gig, then moved to running a successful boutique agency. In this talk, she’ll give you a list of dos and don’ts, working through project management and client relationship tips in order to take that next step.
Designing content-first by Andy Parker
Common pain points when designing sites can be mitigated by not designing at all – defining the message and looking at content before getting into the technical and design aspects. WordPress also has its own challenges and limitations for content creators, and Andy will not only share his own stories, but give you tips on how to combat them.
Web accessibility, where to start? by Rian Rietveld
Everyone likes to talk about accessibility, but it can be difficult to know where to start. Rian will explain the most important issues when creating an accessible website, plug-in, or theme, and where you can get help.
Add to that a fantastic social event on Saturday evening, the wide range of sponsors, including Jetpack, WooCommerce, and us, as well as the Contributor Day on Sunday, 20 August, it’s three days of WordPress fun.
Tickets are still available, and since they’re only £30, they’re selling out quickly – so get them now!
