My WordCamp 2019 Sacramento Schedule

This weekend I’ll be at WordCamp Sacramento 2019.

“Hey Nolan, I didn’t know you’re a WordPress developer?!”.

While we’ve done some WordPress and PHP apps for clients over the years, that’s not really the reason I’ll be at this conference. Take a look at their schedule: 3 tracks, only one of which is WordPress specific. Nearly everything else is pretty general, modern web development. Plus it’s over a weekend so no time off work, and tickets were a mere 40 bucks. Also, it’s local — no hotels, no flights.

Really, if there’s a tech conference local to you, I think attending is pretty much a no-brainer, even if the name of the event doesn’t 100% line up with your current technology stack of choice.

You can probably find me in these sessions:

Yes, a couple of my selections have “WordPress” in the title. I’d argue that even the talks that appear to be  WordPress specific have some value that can be extrapolated to other platforms, which is what I plan on doing.

There are still some tickets available if you’d like to join me.
