As we announced back in April, today we are hosting a special live edition of the SitePoint Podcast at WordCamp Raleigh. We’ll be livestreaming the show through USTREAM (watch below), which will run from 1-3 PM ET or -4 GMT.
Regular hosts Brad Williams (@williamsba), Patrick O’Keefe (@ifroggy) and Stephan Segraves (@ssegraves) are all in town for the event. Unfortunately, our usual fourth host Kevin Yank (@sentience) is not attending the conference, but he will hopefully be with us, watching the stream and hanging out in the chat room.
We’re planning to have 12 guests with us at various points in the broadcast and we also hope to give away 33 prizes to in-person attendees. You can view the full schedule and prize list below.
Please note: due to the chaotic nature of the broadcast, we may not be able to keep up with the chat room as much as we would like. But, please do participate and leave comments and we’ll do our best to read them.
