WordCamp for Publishers is a community-organized event bringing together folks who use WordPress to manage publications, big or small. Check out the action live on Twitter at their hashtag
For the Denver edition of their WordCamp for Publishers, the organizing team designed a die cut sticker that mimics the comment icon you see in social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, where the comment box signifies engagement and interaction. In the news business, red as a color is one of the three primary colors in design, with black and white being the other two. Red often connotes "BREAKING NEWS" that you'll see on many local news broadcast channels, or the famous CNN red on cable news. But this group of WordPress enthusiasts is concerned with digital publishing, and they are heading to the Mile High City to participate in best practices and collaborate on building open source tools for publishers.
This event is for anyone who actively manages a publication with WordPress. Educational tracks will focus engineering, product, and editorial. The speakers and attendees will come from national media organizations and smaller publications, and we've seen lots of activity already on Twitter where people are traveling from all over to visit the beautiful State of Colorado in the summer. There's a lot of energy and enthusiasm for this niche because right now the news business is changing rapidly and with digital publishing, more messages are reaching more consumers more of the time. The acceleration of news delivery, from status updates to app alerts means news consumers have many choices, and WordCamp for Publishers seeks to build new connections between the people who are producing the news.
