Announcing our schedule and speakers

We’re excited to announce our speaker line-up and schedule for WordCamp Edinburgh 2015. We were amazed by the quality and number of speaker submissions we received, and are confident that we’ve got a great day planned.

Over the next couple weeks, we’ll be rolling out further details about the speakers and the talks, so keep an eye out. And don’t forget to get your ticket before they sell out.
