WordCamp Orlando 2012 will be split into two tracks: novice and advanced. The novice track will be geared toward non-programming users, as well as those who are interested in WordPress but not yet familiar with it. The advanced track will be focused on developers, with talks on topics such as plugin development, theme development, security processes and more.
Each session will be 50 minutes, with enough time for an in-depth talk, a question and answer period, and ten minutes to move between one session and the next.
To better accommodate the number of attendees, Session 3 and lunch will be interchanged between each session. The novice track lunch will be at 12:30, and the advanced track lunch at 1:30.
