Community Roundup Week Ending April 28
A Community Gift
Last week I launched a new website as a gift to event organizers, podcasters, bloggers, and speakers in the WordPress community. It’s an online database of WordPress speakers including what topics they present on, what time zones they are in, and what region on the world they live in, along with bios, headshots, and more.
I created it because, as an event organizer myself, I am continually looking for speakers to present at my local (albeit online) meetup. And I figured, if I could create a tool that would make my life a little easier, it might help someone else, too.
So if you’re a speaker, please add yourself to the list at WPSpeakers.com. And if you’re organizing an event or looking for guests for your podcast or blog, consider looking there, too. (And on UnderrepresentedInTech, too, of course!)
It’s free to join. It’s free to search. Powered by me and supported with in-kind and other sponsors.
In the Spotlight
