5 Ways To Keep Learning After a WordCamp

WordCamp Miami may be over, but the opportunities to learn, connect, and contribute continue. Here are 5 actions you can take to build on your WCMIA experience.

1. Attend a Local WordPress Meetup

In the Miami area, attend the South Florida Meetup Group. The group meets twice per month in Davie, alternating between user-focused and developer focused-talks. The next scheduled Meetup is April 4th at Nova Southeastern University, where we’ll be highlighting key takeaways from this year’s WCMIA, sharing the latest newest WordPress news, discussing ways to handle developer overload, and answering questions. If you are unable to join us on the 4th, join us mid-month on the 16th at Florida International University (not Atlantis University as initially announced).

If you are not in South Florida, search Meetup to find the closest WordPress group to you or look on the WordPress Dashboard for upcoming nearby meetings.

2. Attend Other WordCamps

WordCamp Atlanta, WordCamp Orlando, and WordCamp Jacksonville are in the coming months. WordCamp US will take place November 1-3 in St. Louis, MO. Matt Mullenweg will give his “State of the Word” keynote at this event.

The complete list of upcoming WordCamps can be found on WordCamp Central.

3. Share What You Know

One of the best ways to learn is to teach. Sit down and write that blog post, record that podcast, or make that video tutorial. Talk about what you learned at this year’s event and how you plan to use the information. It’s a great way to reinforce what you learned at WordCamp Miami. If you are writing a post, include tweets and insights from other WCMIA attendees. After publishing your round-up post or tutorial, let others know you have included their insights in your content.

Bonus Tip: Local WordPress Meetups are always looking for speakers. Contact your local organizers about turning your post into a lightening or full-fledged presentation. This is a great first step toward applying to speak at a future WordCamp.

4. Follow the 2019 WordCamp Miami Speakers on Twitter

Valuable insights are always being shared on Twitter. Stay informed by subscribing to the 2019 WCMIA Speaker Twitter List. Follow hashtags on areas that interest you, like #WordPress. With time, you may narrow your focus to niche hashtags.

5. Review Presentations from WordCamp Miami 2019

Recorded video from this year’s sessions are available on the FIU website and WCMIA’s Facebook page. Sessions will be available on WordPress.tv in the future.

You can also check individual session descriptions and speaker bios for additional resources.

We’re also collecting speaker tweets about their slides and relevant blog posts.
