Kids Camp!

Saturday, 10:00AM–4:30PM
Amphitheater Upstairs

WordCamp parents can now usher in the next generation of WordPress builders at KidsCamp! Parents attending WordCamp can bring their junior WordPressers along and enjoy a day of parent-child learning under the tutelage of some of our WordPress Developers!

These special kid-friendly lessons will introduce your child to the wonderful world of WordPress and help them learn or improve upon WordPress development, design, and use skills! After the day is complete, your child will leave with their very own WordPress.com site up and running!

Interested WordPress parents or guardians will need to have a ticket for Saturday attendance purchased before signing up their junior builders. Parents are responsible for staying at the venue during KidsCamp, and may choose to attend KidsCamp sessions. Each child will need his or her own laptop to work on.

Each KidsCamp ticket provides your junior builder with lunch, a morning and afternoon snack, and full access to the day’s lessons. We are accepting children from ages 7 to 14 to participate in these special lessons and spots are limited to only 50 students (not including their parental sponsors).

Ready to start your child out on their own WordPress project? KidsCamp tickets will go on sale with the general admission tickets. Also, if you have an older child ready to learn some advanced topics, they are welcome to join us for the full sessions and workshops with a regular ticket!

Troy Dean of WP Elevation is Coming from Australia to Give the Keynote!

Troy Dean is the co-founder of WP Elevation, the world’s largest business community for WordPress consultants and freelancers. He is also the co-founder of RockStar Empires, an online education platform that helps entrepreneurs use the Internet to scale their businesses. He is a proud university dropout, and freaking loves the Internet.

Troy is also a voice-over artist, singer and guitar player. He lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife, who runs a psychology podcast on WordPress, and his dog Lucy, who is more of a Drupal kinda gal.

Troy’s keynote topic for WordCamp Atlanta will be Seven Figures from Scratch: How I used the Internet (and WordPress) to build a seven-figure a year business with no money in the bank. He’ll be touching on freelancing, client services, digital products, online courses and building communities.

Back in 2007 Troy built his own CMS as part of a website assignment for a client. Even he admits it was pretty clunky. Then a friend of a friend turned him on to WordPress. He resisted at first, but after he tried it, WordPress became his tool of choice.

To help his clients manage and edit the WP sites he built, he created a 100-page tutorial with careful instructions and screen shots. A friend, impressed with the effort, suggested turning it into video tutorials, and that’s what Troy did. Then he built a site so people could sign up for the continually-updated videos. Eventually, that turned into WP Elevation.

Today, The World’s Largest Business Community for WordPress Consultants is an amazing repository of genuinely smart and useful knowledge. And Troy is very happy if other people use his resources on WP Elevation to build their own success.

Troy’s immense value to the WordPress community has made him a sought-after speaker around the world. Based on his own experiences, he has developed all kinds of ideas, tips and insights, which he loves to share. Among his list of guidelines to struggling entrepreneurs, one item that recurs over and over is this simple mantra: “Don’t Quit.”
