Automattic, the company behind WordPress and WordPress.com, announced the launch of a new event series called Press Publish. This will give bloggers the chance to learn and network with so-called WordPress.com experts.
"These events will focus on inspiration and tools from WordPress.com, though people blogging on any platform will be welcome," says Jen Mylo in a blog post. "Speakers will be a combination of awesome WordPress.com bloggers and staff members including folks from the Happiness Team, Blogging U, and the Theme Team — in short, the WordPress.com experts."
The series will kick off with conferences this spring in Portland, Oregon and Phoenix. The Portland event will be on March 28, and the Phoenix one will be on April 18.
"We’re putting together the program now, and will start announcing speakers, schedule, and pricing later this month," says Mylo. "In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you about bloggers/speakers or topics that we should have on our radar."
Bloggers can subscribe to the Press Publish site for further updates.
