One of the main objectives of WordCamps is to bring together local WordPress talent. One way in which we’re doing that this year is to give local WordPress developers who have created something for the community a public “soapbox” to showcase their work and to spread the love.
We’re calling this the Developer Showcase.
Every hour, a new local developer will rotate in at table near the Happiness Bar (coffee / refreshments / snack bar!). See below for a list of names and what they will be presenting. Feel free to stop by on your way between sessions, or stick around and get into a deeper chat if you have an open slot in your schedule.
