WPTavern: WordCamp for Publishers Videos Now Available on YouTube

WPTavern: WordCamp for Publishers Videos Now Available on YouTube

WordCamp for Publishers, held last month at The Denver Post building, was the first niche WordCamp to be focused around a specific industry. The event was designed for people who use WordPress to manage publications and also to encourage collaboration among project maintainers who build open source tools for publishers.

In addition to hands-on technical workshops, the schedule included a variety of publishing-related topics, such as monetization, content distribution, newsletter tools, and print and digital workflows.

“The schedule prompted a great deal of learning and discussion that extended well beyond the content typically found at a regional WordCamp,” attendee Maura Teal said. “One of the best aspects of this conference was chatting with other developers and leaders involved in media on the web. There were multiple sessions and hallway discussions that brought intriguing solutions to the table. My primary takeaway was that there certainly needs to be more WordCamps of this kind – that is, focused on a niche but still rooted in community.”

The unique format of the event offered more small group opportunities than a traditional WordCamp does for learning, asking questions, and collaborating around tools and strategies that directly relate to publishers.

“WordCamp for Publishers was not your average or typical WordCamp,” attendee Dwayne McDaniel said. “It felt a lot more like WPCampus insofar as the general mood and feeling I got from the participants. Getting to see folks from competing media companies openly discussing how to solve their common challenges, I learned a whole lot and I am grateful to have had the chance to learn about the publishing space.”

Videos for all of the sessions held in the auditorium are now available in a YouTube playlist. They will also be uploaded to WordPress.tv in the near future. Organizer Steph Yiu said the event was so successful that they are already planning next year’s conference. Anyone interested in volunteering or donating a venue can get in touch with the organizing team.
