Announcing the WCSTL Speaker Lineup – Round 1

The WordCamp St. Louis organization team is proud to present our first round of speakers for our 2017 event. We had a lot of a awesome submissions. We carefully went over all the submissions, as a team, and then voted on them. We looked for what we wanted to hear, what our local meetup group has been wanting to learn, and tried to select a variety of topics.

Please give our speakers a warm welcome. Please note, we’ve not posted the talk descriptions yet, but we’ve given a little tease, by unveiling the title of each speaker’s topic.  This is merely round 1, so there will be another round of announcements soon.
