WPCampus is a community and conference for web professionals, educators and people dedicated to the confluence of WordPress in higher education. Today will be a very general overview of WPCampus and talking about the conference but we want this to be the beginning of a weekly show where we can discuss topics relevant to our community, share tutorials and walkthroughs, broadcast the types of sessions you might see at a conference, and more!
The WPCampus Podcast is a monthly show where members of the community come together to discuss relevant topics, unique ways that WordPress is being used in higher education, share tutorials and walkthroughs, and more. If you'd like to be a guest on the show, or have a topic you'd like us to discuss, please let us know.
I'm the Director/Founder of WPCampus and a Senior Software Engineer for The Walt Disney Company. Before Disney, I spent over nine years working in higher education. When I'm not using WordPress to help build the web, I enjoy promoting the importance of accessibility and an open web. Be sure to say hi on Twitter @bamadesigner.
