📅 Conference and Event Updates
- 🔌 Brad Williams and Cory Miller will be holding a webinar on “Building Your First WordPress Plugin” on August 20, 2020, at 01:00 PM Central Time (the US and Canada). You can RSVP here for free. Based on the popularity of our first webinar on this topic, we're bringing it back. It's an extension of their awesome, newly updated book, Professional WordPress Plugin Development. Very, very practical and helpful for anyone getting started.
- 💼 WPMRR Virtual Summit (September 23rd and 24th). Free, online. The focus will be “100% focused on helping you make monthly recurring revenue work for your WordPress business.” Scroll down the homepage where they publicly list the MRR (monthly recurring revenue) numbers from the speakers who will be participating! 💸
- 🏕️ WordCamp Europe 2021 (TBD, Online). Ticket Sales are not open yet, but the Call for Organisers is. Looking ahead with hope to an in-person WCEU in 2022, the Super Bock Arena (Pavilhão Rosa Mota) in Porto, Portugal has been booked for June 2 – June 4, 2022.
- 😢 In case you missed it from last week: WordCamp US 2020 has been cancelled. You can read the organizers' response to questions about their decision not to hold an online event as originally planned in April. Online conference fatigue and doubt about their ability to meet community goals were among the reasons given for the cancellation.
- 🦠 This week all in-person flagship events — large, regional WordCamps — have been cancelled for the rest of 2020 and all of 2021.
