Doc’s WordPress News Drop is a weekly report on the most pressing WordPress news. When the news drops, I will pick it up and deliver it right to you.

WordCamp Europe is only a few weeks away, but we are already thinking about WordCamp US in Nashville. In this week’s video we talk about the latest news with WCEU and WCUS.

Love WordPress news but hate reading? My name is Doc and this is Doc Pop’s News Drop.

WordCamp Europe is only a couple of weeks away? Have you started packing yet? This week we’ll have one final update from Jenny Beaumont the lead organizer of WordCamp Europe, but first:

WordCamp US is 6 months away… whoa… That’s… time is flyig by this year, right?
WordCamp US has put out an open call for speakers and if you are interested you can check out the website https://wcus-speakers.org/ for more details. The deadline for submissions is July 1st, so don’t wait too long.

I’ve always wanted to give a WordCamp talk, but I just can’t figure out what to speak about. If you have any ideas or suggestions, leave them in the comments below. Maybe something about what it’s like to make weekly WordPress cartoons and videos for the past two years? I need a hook though.

Speaking of time flying, we’ve been lucky enough to have Jenny Beaumont sharing exclusive WCEU updates for the past few months and we’ve really appreciated it. Lets check in one more time for WCEU news:

That was the last of Jenny’s weekly video updates, but on next week’s News Drop we’ll have a great interview with here. So stay tuned for that.

One more note, Amazon has announced a brand new product called Amazon Translate. This is a real time translation tool that can be tied in with other products like Amazon Polly, the text to voice app that also has a WordPress plugin. We’ll share a short interview with one of the developers from Amazon Translate later this week, so stay tuned for that.

That’s it for this week’s news drop, do you have an idea for a WordCamp US talk that you’d like to give? Leave it in the comments below and we’ll help workshop it. We’ll see you next week for more WordPress news.
