Call for Speakers

Update: the call for speakers has ended. Thank you to those who applied! We will select speakers in a few weeks and contact all applicants after that. If you still want to support the community, another great way is to volunteer at the event. The Call for volunteers is open!

WordCamp Helsinki 2017 is going to gather most enthusiastic WordPress users around Finland to one location. People are coming to watch and hear brilliant talks, but we can’t do it all alone.

If you have some knowledge you think might be worth sharing, please consider applying to speak. It’s a great way to give back to the community!

Tiivistelmä suomeksi: WordCamp Helsinki 2017 kerää Suomen innostuneimmat WordPressin käyttäjät saman katon alle. Jos sinulla on jotain kiinnostavaa jaettavaa, joka hyödyttäisi muita, harkitse hakemista puhujaksi WordCamp Helsinkiin! Toivomme ensisijaisesti englanninkielisiä esityksiä, mutta osa voi olla myös suomeksi. Hakemusten viimeinen jättöpäivä on perjantai 17.2.

Talk Format & Submission Guidelines

Full-length sessions will be about 30 minutes long with 10-15 additional minutes for questions from the audience. We will also include a few 10-15 minute lightning talks.
