For the second consecutive year, the SitePoint Podcast will host a special live show at WordCamp Raleigh in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Last year’s show, the first ever live, in person episode of the podcast, was a big success, with a face to face audience of 80-120 people and a live online audience in the hundreds. So, we’re doing it again!
WordCamp Raleigh will be held at the Sheraton Raleigh on May 21 and 22. It is a conference focused on WordPress, the popular publishing platform that powers SitePoint Blogs, with presentations covering not only WordPress, but related topics, as well. You can register for the conference online, with tickets available for just $45.
The podcast will be live on May 21 for two hours, starting at 1 PM ET (GMT/UTC -4) in the room dedicated to the Users Track. We’ll have prizes, special guests and a lot of fun and conversation. You will need a conference pass to attend the podcast in person.
Just like last year, it’ll be my co-hosts Brad Williams (@williamsba) and Stephan Segraves (@ssegraves) alongside myself (@ifroggy). Unfortunately, our newly anointed co-host Louis Simoneau (@rssaddict) will not be making the long trek from Australia. Dave Moyer will be helping us out again on the technical end.
Following the podcast, both Brad and me will be speaking as part of the Power Users track, with Brad leading “Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse using Custom Post Types and Taxonomies” and me with “Comment Moderation 201.”
Our Special Guest: You
We’re still working out the logistics, but we’ll be pulling at least one member of the audience up on stage to be a guest on the show and, if you attend, it could be you.
Join Us Online or In Person
The show will be broadcast online, so if you can’t make it in person, we encourage you to join us live here on the podcast homepage at http://www.sitepoint.com/podcast. We will be recording the show so that it can be released as a regular podcast, but we hope to have you there with us for the fun, whether for the whole show or just part of it.
If any podcast listeners are in the area and can make it to the event, we’d love to meet you in person! Thank you for reading and we hope to see you there.
