WordCamp organizer hangouts

I’m scheduling a series of Google hangouts for WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. organizers.

My primary aim here is to streamline the WordCamp organizer approval process, which typically includes an hour-long (or more) orientation chat with each organizer about the program and guidelines. By scheduling these hangouts, I’m hoping to give that talk fewer times per month as well as allow other organizers to hear answers to questions they might not have thought to ask. These hangouts will be public, and I’ll record them so we’ll have an archive. 🙂
