A/V Release Form

The last two WordCamps I had the pleasure to visit asked speakers to sign the A/V releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software. form on a pdf file. This means having a printer and a scanner (or if you are more tech savvy and you have a Mac use Preview, but I don’t assume everyone knows that – I didn’t up until a few days ago!).

For WordCampWordCamp A WordCamp is a conference where the WordPress community come together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. https://central.wordcamp.org/about/. Torino we pasted the text of the A/V release form in a page and added a form with:

  • Name
  • Date
  • Checkbox (redundant, cause if you didn’t send the form for us it meant you didn’t sign the form, but we felt it reinforced the importance of explicitly approve the rules).
  • Send

I feel that this would make the process easier for speakers.

Do you think we could create this page for all WordCamp.org installations?
