We’re excited to share that the speakers for WordCamp Denver 2017 have officially been confirmed, and we’ll be trickling out their names over the next few days. Looking forward to hearing them speak? Purchase your WordCamp Denver tickets today!
The first round of speakers will be leading our Sunday workshops, and we’d love to introduce them to you:
Tracy is the owner of a successful marketing company – CoWEBop Marketing. Her team has been building websites for small businesses for over 20 years. She happily shares her knowledge with the WordPress community as a co-organizer of the Boulder WordPress Meetup.
Ryan is a WordPress Developer for Digital First Media from Denver, Colorado where he works on websites for newspapers such as the Denver Post, Orange County Register, and Mercury News. He has been working with WordPress for the past 9 years, building websites and products for customers around the world. He is also one of the organizers for the WordPress Denver Meetup. You can find him most places on the internet as @CodeProKid.
Erin has been making websites since 1999, and started her own web design and development company in 2012. After a few years creating websites for clients, Erin shifted her business. Now, her primary business is helping other designers and developers navigate the difficult waters of entrepreneurship by providing courses and guides to teach everything from how to start a web design business to how to deal with nightmare clients.
When she’s not teaching designers or working with her own design/development clients, Erin can be found exploring the mountains near her home in Aspen, Colorado.
Michael Newman has designed and developed innovative, professional interactive experiences for over 20 years. He has worked with diverse clientele, including IFC, AT&T, Honda, UCLA, Godiva, MTV, Comcast, AOL and Gartner. After leading Interactive groups for companies including IFC, AT&T and Heavy.com, he founded Pomp Productions to create unique experiences for clients. Michael has taught at Pratt in New York City and currently teaches Design & Development courses at UCLA Extension.
Michael’s first experience with WordPress was in 2005. Using WordPress as CMS, he quickly learned the power of plugins and why you never hack the core. In 2016, Michael created the plugin Logic Hop to bring the power of personalization to WordPress through conditional logic, goals and lead scoring.
An avid maker, Michael has exhibited projects at TEDx, Maker Faires and museums, including an an SMS controlled Nerf machine gun, a hands-free skeeball game and an analog, hand drawn video game. He currently resides on the beach with his wife Katharine and sons Jack Tesla and Luke Edison.

There’s so much about this year’s camp that we’re excited about – a new venue, the possibilities for the schedule, our super-cool new logo – but more than anything, we’re stoked to be contributing to the ongoing growth of our already-vibrant WordPress community in Colorado.
As the planning team has conspired to find ways to expand our reach and grow our community, we identified two big ways to improve communication and connection – a Facebook page and an email list. Continue reading “More ways to stay in touch”
If the cost of a ticket to WordCamp Denver is prohibitive for you, please fill out the form below, and we’ll be in touch. We do have a limited number of scholarships available, so form submission does not guarantee that you’ll receive the grant. This application form will remain active until active until August 1, or until we have allocated all available scholarship funds.
Planning a WordCamp involves a lot of effort towards making camp events and content as accessible as possible. So much of the time, for so many people, finances can be a barrier to access, so we’re cooking up ways to lower that barrier.
