WordCamp Portland 2011 will span all day (9ish to 5ish) on Saturday and the afternoon (1:30ish to 5:30ish) on Sunday. We’ll publish the exact schedule and agenda as we get closer but here’s the initial information on the event format and speaker selection process.
We’ll be having a few featured speakers throughout the weekend. These will be pre-selected speakers on topics that appeal to a wide audience of WordPress users. Most of the rest of the event will be in an unconference format which allows attendees to bring ideas for topics for which they have expertise or for which they’d like to find some answers.
For more information, see our Speakers page.
We solicited suggestions through the first week of August and used community input as a factor in selecting our featured speakers. Thanks to all who weighed in!
