WordCamp RI is a non-profit conference, fully organized by local volunteers. The 2-day conference is designed to bring WordPress enthusiasts, business owners, engineers and bloggers together. Here they will learn, network and have fun with a group of like-minded individuals.
Our schedule is broken into three different tracks: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. In each track you will learn valuable information tailored to your needs. Each speaker is dedicated to helping the WordPress community grow & flourish. There are some crowd favorites coming back to share even more knowledge, as well as newcomers who we are very excited about!
WordCamp RI is so grateful for the generosity of its sponsors. Their commitment to the WordPress community allows events like WordCamps to be so successful. With their support, we are able to offer 2 full days of training, lunch, networking, after party and more for only $20 per ticket.
Keynote – John Maeda
From STEM to STEAM to Startups and Dreams
After working in venture capital for three years in Silicon Valley, John Maeda will explain why he’s recently moved to a technology startup, Automattic, to advance design AND inclusion at a global scale. What does he do? What will he do? These questions, among others, will be touched upon with the WordCamp RI audience.
He is an American executive spearheading a new convergence across the design + technology industries. He recently joined Automattic as Global Head of Computational Design + Inclusion and previously served as Design Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, a world-leading venture capital firm. An internationally recognized speaker and author, his books include The Laws of Simplicity, Creative Code and Redesigning Leadership. He holds degrees in Electrical Engineering + Computer Science from MIT, an MBA from Arizona State U, and a PhD from University of Tsukuba in Japan.
New England Tech is a private, non-profit technical college located in Southeastern New England. Their state-of-art campus makes it the perfect choice when deciding to host WordCamp RI. Their staff and students have a willingness to help the local WordPress community. We are thrilled to be back at NEIT again for WordCamp 2016.
