WordFest Live, the free global online celebration of WordPress, returns July 23, 2021.
For 24 hours, WordPress enthusiasts and experts from around the world will share their work, knowledge, and experiences with WordPress in a safe, virtual event.
Whether you’re a designer, developer, writer, product manager, content strategist, or use WordPress for your personal blog, you’ll find helpful resources, advice, and information at WordFest.
About WordFest LIve
Organized by a group of WordCamp organizers, WordFest Live offers 24 hours of non-stop talks and discussions about WordPress, remote working, and mental well-being.
Talks, panels, workshops, and discussions comprise the 48 practical sessions to help you develop life and business skills.
The online social space allows you to connect openly with other attendees.
The event begins in Australia, moves on to Asia, then to Africa, followed by Europe, stopping in South America, before finishing in North America.
Part of the goal of WordFest Live is to raise funds for Big Orange Heart, a registered United Kingdom charity whose mission is to support and promote positive well-being and mental health in remote working communities.
At no cost to attendees.
You can make an optional $10 donation when you register for WordFest (as of April 28, 2021, registration isn’t open).
From this year’s website:
You can expect connection, growth, education and some special “extras” added for your personalised festival experience!
No registration is required.
Attend the sessions that fit in your schedule. And if you can’t make it one of the sessions, watch the captioned recording after the event.
