WordCamp Talks Beta

I’m happy to announce that the Beta of the WordCamp Talks plugin is on GitHub and ready for testing, feedback, feature requests and PRs! \o/

https://github.com/imath/wordcamp-talks/releases/tag/1.0.0-beta1

This first step in the process forked the WP Idea Stream plugin and integrated the WordCamp-specific features previously grouped in an external file.

Reminder: our goal is to create a plugin for WordCamp sites that manages talk submissions and selections (similar to OpenCFP), integrating seamlessly with the existing Speaker post type (on the to do list).

All credit for current efforts goes to @imath, I’m just the messenger 🙂

WordCamp Design Kit!

Producing assets and finding a visual direction for conferences or big events such as WordCamp can be a tedious task and represent a lot of work for designers. From not knowing where to start, thinking about every asset that’s needed, browsing the web to find out standard dimensions and looking for visual references, the challenges arise!

So, in order to facilitate and ensure an enjoyable workflow, I created this **fully customizable, free and open source design kit**. With this folder in hand, the designers get access to tangible inspiration, functional templates, and professional mockups. More than one could ask for! Made for designers and intended for the end-users, this guide should also be a source of motivation to generating brilliant visuals that prompt excitement towards the attendees, sponsors, volunteers, organizers, speakers and anyone involved in the event.

And because the beauty of customization lives in its opportunity for a unique flavor, I myself took great influence from my surroundings as I was building the template. In fact, you’ll notice a combination of the Silicon beach tech scene (through the icons, the generous white spaces, and the sans serif font) and the romantic colors of Venice Beach sunsets (via the compound colors ranging from purple to orange).

On that note, enjoy!

WordCamp Toolkit Reminder | February 4, 2015

A reminder that the weekly Toolkit meeting will happen in the #outreach channel on Slack at 19:00 UTC.

For those who don’t know, the Toolkit refers to a set of posts and documents that are being created to use as a sort of handbook for new WordCamp organizers. The purpose is to lower the barrier to entry as well as make sure that all of the knowledge of our current, wonderful organizers is preserved.
