Call for Volunteers

WordCamps don’t happen without the generous help of the WordPress community. We need 7 or 8 volunteers. Why volunteer? Well, you’ll get a free ticket to the event, an invite to the speaker/sponsor dinner, our gratitude, and the adoration of other camp-goers.

We need folks we can count on. If you are interested, drop us a line with the form below. We’re looking for a few people who enjoy lending a helping hand.



This year, we’re introducing a new event at WordCamp OC: Plugin-a-palooza 2015. We want everyone to come together in the spirit of competition, show off your mad developer skills, and create a plugin that will wow the judges.

  • Send us your pitch for the type of plugin you’d like to build. Deadline for pitches is February 20. Extended to March 1st!!!
  • We’ll confirm your entry into the competition by reviewing these pitches. There is room for 10 teams to compete.
  • Each team member can only be on one team in the competition.
  • Build your plugin!
  • The plugin has to be able to be released in the WordPress repository – in fact, it must be there by May 29. So you’re going to need to submit them to WordPress plugin review no later than May 15th in order to get them approved. This means the plugin has to be completely GPL compliant.
  • The top teams will present their plugins on Sunday, June 7th at WordCamp.
  • Our judges will vote live at the event and we’ll announce the winner.
  • The winning team and runners up win fabulous prizes!
  • No shenanigans!
