What Can You Expect at WordCamp Atlanta 2023?
There are a lot of great talks happening in Atlanta this year. It’s really difficult to choose just a handful to list, but needless to say, there is plenty to check out regardless of what you do with WordPress.
Some of the talks you can attend this year include:
- The Impact of AI on SEO Content
It seems you can’t go anywhere without hearing about artificial intelligence these days. In this talk, Jenny Munn helps a variety of professionals and experts integrate the best practices of using AI to their advantage.

- Benefits, Not Features: How to Speak Human About Your Product
In this talk, Rob Pugh goes over how to speak authentically about your product or brand and how it can solve the problems of customers. It’s all about delivering a human element instead of appearing robotic.
- The Power of Leaning into the WordPress Block Editor
As WordPress continues to evolve, the Block Editor has grown into a powerful tool. In this talk, Will Middleton shows you how to get more out of the Block Editor and the power behind full-site editing.
These are just some of the talks that piqued my interest, specifically. However, there are far more ranging from helping developers to improving business practices.
Because of the state of things nowadays, I would like to point out that there are quite a few talks centering around using AI for a variety of purposes. If that interests you, then this is definitely a WordCamp you should attend.
Fun Things to Do in Atlanta
Atlanta has a lot of historical references and is full of attractions and museums. You might want to take a bit of time to explore what the city has to offer.
For instance, a few things to do in Atlanta during the WordCamp include:
- If you enjoy relaxing in a serene natural setting, be sure to check out Piedmont Park. It’s free to visit and is often referred to as one of Atlanta’s best parks.
- The National Center for Civil Human Rights is a 42,000-square-foot complex highlighting a lot of history including a collection of artifacts from Martin Luther King Jr. himself.
- Of course, I’m going to point out the Atlanta Botanical Garden as an attraction. This 30-acre locale is next to Piedmont Park and is home to the Fuqua Orchid Center and one of the few hardwood forests remaining in Atlanta.
To be perfectly honest, there is just so much you can do in Atlanta while visiting the WordCamp. The World of Coca-Cola, Oakland Cemetary, the Delta Flight Museum…it’d take a long time to visit all of the great attractions available.
Have a Great Weekend in Atlanta!
WordCamp Atlanta is sure to be a great couple of days, so be sure you’re reserving your place today. Between location and the available talks, I am quite envious that I won’t be able to attend.
I’d like to take this moment to give appreciation to all of the organizers, volunteers, sponsors, and attendees who made WordCamp Atlanta happen. It’s nice to get back to a sense of normalcy.
Don’t forget, we’ll be there in person and can’t wait to see you.
Have a great weekend and stay safe.
