Meetups, Conferences & Other Eventspast experience with planning and executing events
Krista has been a member of the WordPress NYC community for many years and invites anyone interested in WordPress to find a local event to connect with other enthusiasts.
WordPress Meetups are a great way to get to know other WordPress users in your area while learning new tricks and sharing some old ones. In NYC, we have several meetup groups if you live in the area and want to get involved.
Depending on your interests, the official WordPress NYC Meetups meet monthly at various locations throughout NYC.
If meetups aren’t enough and you like to travel, WordCamps are the way to go!
WordCamps are community-organized events that are put together by WordPress enthusiasts from around the globe.
Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other during these memorable events that go on pretty much any given weekend in a different location around the world.
“WordCamps are where your favorite WordPress Avatars come to life!”
WordPress NYC Community Contributions
Former WordCamp NYC organizer. As part of the 2012 team, she helped with design, vendors, logistical planning and scheduling. For the 2014 event, Krista helped with some of the overall planning, print vendors, and worked with the video team to capture and deliver all event sessions that were recorded. When she joined the team for her final year in 2015, she worked on the overall program/schedule, vendor wrangling when necessary, speaker communication and some of the touches that added to the memorable experience; such as a Ghost Walk on Halloween eve, and requests that made the sweet treats more festive than anticipated throughout the weekend. Collectively, she has contributed to many areas required to ensure a fun and educational experience for WordPress enthusiasts.
When active, her WordPress NYC meetup contributions included venue searches, planning, and mentoring others to lead workshops and talks.
