Dude I’m speaking at WordCamp OC!

That’s right, I’m speaking at the 2011 Orange County WordCamp, May 14th.

What is a WordCamp? WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.

I’m going to be presenting the topic, “Optimizing WordPress: Speed Matters”

By itself, WordPress is fast and snappy application but over time your site may become sluggish and laggy. A slow site is not good for your readers, or your search engine rankings. In a one hour presentation, I’m going to show some practical ways to optimize your WordPress sites content and configuration. The presentation will cover best practices, helpful plugins and real life optimization examples.

I’m excited to check out the other topics that are being presented. The OC WordCamp has three distinct tracks of sessions, beginners, advanced, and business minded users.

If you’re free on May 14th 2011 and love WordPress, you should come and hang out with some fellow WordPress users. http://2011.oc.wordcamp.org
