Meet SingaPuu!

A WordCamp is not fun without a Wapuu. Therefore we are very excited to introduce our very own Wapuu “SingaPuu” to represent WordCamp Singapore 2016!

SingaPuu-#2

What’s a Wapuu, you ask? Wapuu is essentially the unofficial mascot of WordCamp. The idea was first mentioned in 2009 at the WordCamp Tokyo after-party, where Matt asked Japanese users for ideas to promote WordPress in Japan, and one of the suggestions is to create a mascot. One things lead to another and finally Wapuu was born! (Here’s the complete story for those who want to know more) Ever since then, almost every WordCamp had their own Wapuu.

The name SingaPuu is a portmanteau of Singapore and Wapuu. “Singa” means “Lion” in Malay language. Singapore (or Singapura in Malay) essentially means “Lion City”, which is why SingaPuu is dressed in a Lion costume!

SingaPuu will be roarin’ in WordCamp Singapore on 6th September, 2016 at One Marina Boulevard. Grab your tickets here!

Call for Speakers Extended!

Note: Our Call for Speakers is now closed. If you have any questions about WordCamp Singapore, please email us or tweet us at @WordCampSG.

Our Call for Speakers has been open for a month! We’ve seen some great submissions so far, but found that there are still plenty of people who haven’t heard that WordCamp Singapore is happening. We don’t want to miss out on any potentially great talks, so we’ve decided to extend the submission deadline to Monday, 18 July 2016, at 11:59pm Singapore time!

Once again: you don’t need to have lots of public speaking experience. All that we ask is that you be able to present your chosen topic passionately and respectfully.

We’re also looking to put together a show-and-tell segment, where you can tell a short story of how your WordPress website evolved over time. This will be great for anyone looking to gain some speaking experience.

If you’re unsure of a topic, we’ll be happy to talk about it with you.

We’ve already begun shortlisting our speakers, and will be announcing some of them soon!

If you feel like there’s a blogger whose story you would like to hear about, or have a friend who you think would be a great speaker for WordCamp, do share the Call for Speakers link with them.

Call for Sponsors Open!

Sponsoring WordCamp is a great opportunity to extend your presence among our attendees, which include designers, developers, bloggers, small business owners, entrepreneurs, and educators from throughout Singapore and across the region.

If you or your business have benefited from using WordPress, now is the perfect time to give something back.

Your sponsorship will help reduce the ticket costs for attendees (meaning more people will likely come) and allow us to provide a substantially higher quality event than we could with ticket sales. It will also give you an opportunity to engage with our attendees during the event.

If you or your organisation is interested in sponsoring WordCamp Singapore, please read the Call For Sponsors page and fill up our application form.

With your support, we will be able to put together an awesome WordCamp!
