This is always a great WordCamp – for everyone, from beginners to seasoned veterans. There is even a talk about WordPress for Kids –by a kid!

And here are a few tips, straight from the WordCamp LAX website:

WordCamp Los Angeles 2017 is going to be a trendsetter for sure!

We’ve gathered a sensational pit crew from far and wide that serve as organizers, volunteers, speakers and sponsors! Prepare to be impressed and learn a ton through the many sessions on Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1. 

Think through your sessions ahead of time and plan your weekend with our speaker schedule. The After Party will be on-site, giving you a welcome reprieve from LA parking struggles. By the way, don’t forget to print your parking pass (good for Saturday and Sunday).

Racing to Prepare for WordCamp Los Angeles

In case you are completely new to WordCamp Los Angeles, we wanted to explain that WordCamps are volunteer-run conferences dedicated to learning more about the open source WordPress platform. We learn together as we venture into the world of WordPress as a community of designers, developers, business owners, artists, writers, SEO and IT professionals and new WordPress users to create an unforgettable adventure!

Planning Makes for a Winning Experience – but don’t stress about it. Come either way!

Here are a few “pro” tips to help you get the most from WordCamp Los Angeles.

  • Interact and Walk in Early to Sessions. 
  • Learn Something New.
  • Tweet or Take Short Notes to Help you Remember. 
  • Use Your Voice to Ask Questions.
  • Be a Friend. 
  • Reach Out to Speakers After the Session if You Need to Know More.
  • Consider Alternatives because WordPress is not a one size fits all experience.
  • Thank speakers, sponsors, volunteers and organizers. Your gratitude is music to their ears.
  • Share  your experience with photos, tweets, text and #WCLAX.

In case you didn’t notice, the theme for this WordCamp is RACING and by that I mean Formula One. You can read all about the event, speakers, sponsors, and everyone else who is going to be there on the website.
