WordCamp Montreal 2015
We’ve confirmed all our speakers and we’ve just released the tentative schedule for WordCamp Montreal. You can read all about our talks and speakers and start planning your WordCamp weekend.

How Our Talks Are Organized

This year our talks are divided into several streams: code, users, marketing, ux, theming, hands-on workshops, and special topics. We hope there will be something for everyone. All our speakers have provided prerequisites for their talks, so please read these if you want to know if a particular talk is geared towards beginners or a more advanced crowd.

About Our Workshops

This year we are organizing a number of special workshops the week before WordCamp. These are hands-on workshops. A special ticket to each workshop is required, in addition to your general WordCamp ticket. Space is limited.

Some workshops are for complete beginners and others are for very advanced users. Be sure to read the prerequisites for each workshop carefully. You will be required to bring your own laptop, and have any required software installed before arriving.

Registering for Workshops

Workshop tickets will be available for a limited time. Please do not register for workshops unless you have already purchased a WordCamp Montreal ticket. Also, please be considerate of others and do not register for two workshops offered at the same time. In both cases, your registration will be cancelled and your spot given to someone else.

Please note that the schedule is subject to change. Please double check the schedule the day of the event.
