Our sessions are split into three tracks, based on target audience, but you don’t need to commit to just one track. Attend the sessions that interest you from any track!
End Users (& New Users)
The End Users track is intended for individuals who are interested in WordPress as a publishing platform or CMS, and is also suitable for users who have little or no experience with WordPress. If you’re an End User (or New User), the inner workings of the WordPress software mean less to you than what you can do with the software. The End User track is a great fit for bloggers, small business owners, community organizations, entrepreneurs, students, hobbyists and freelancers.
The Designers track is intended for individuals who are interested in using WordPress as the engine that powers their websites, and probably have at least an intermediate level of experience with WordPress. If you’re a Designer, you likely have experience with web/graphic design, HTML+CSS, or using software like Adobe Dreamweaver. The Designer track is a great fit for anyone that is interested in creating custom themes or migrating existing websites/designs to the WordPress platform.
The Developers track is intended for individuals who already have fairly extensive experience, and are interested in the inner workings of WordPress: creating plugins, making extensive modifications, or contributing to the core code. If you’re a Developer, you likely have experience with HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. The Developer track is a great fit for PHP developers looking for a solid CMS to build upon.
Our hands-on Sunday workshops give you an opportunity to work with WordPress in a classroom setting. Each room is equipped with power outlets at every desk, and a wifi connection is available throughout the campus. To fully participate in the workshops, you are required to bring your own laptop – computers are not provided by the college, or by WordCamp Toronto.
Saturday Night After-Party
Join us at Habanero’s on Saturday night @ 6:30pm for margaritas and complementary munchies! Habanero’s will be exclusively #WCTO for three hours, so come and have some drinks, some food, and some good chatter, with other WordCamp attendees. Habanero’s is just west of Front St., and Church in the St. Lawrence Market district.
