WordCamp San Francisco!

Next Saturday, May 1, the WordPress community of bloggers, developers, designers and friends will gather in San Francisco for the 5th annual WordCamp SF.

If you’ve ever wondered what WordCamp was all about, the San Francisco event is the mothership, produced under the direction of WordPress co-founder and lead developer Matt Mullenweg.

There are traditions. Each WordCamp SF, Matt reports on the “State of the Word” and invites accomplished speakers who have inspired him over the previous year. This year’s confirmed speakers include Richard Stallman, the father of Free Software; Scott Berkun, bestselling author of The Myths of Innovation; and Scott Rosenberg, co-founder of Salon.com. Several more luminaries who’ll be speaking will be announced this coming week on the WordCamp SF blog.

More traditions: in addition to the keynotes, there will be talks and tracks for bloggers and developers, lightning talks on a wide range of WordPress topics, all the BBQ you can eat at lunch, commemorative t-shirts and stickers, and an afterparty at the worldwide web famous Automattic Lounge.

If you’re in the Bay Area, or can be, you should meet up with all of us at WordCamp San Francisco.

Get your ticket today and join us next Saturday!

    The WordCamp that will be closest to my area is in early summer. When an event has BBQ, commemorative t-shirts, and an afterparty I’m normally there! I’m quite certain that when this WordCamp comes around I’ll be too busy. 😦

    I received the mail about the wordcamp in SF and saw that there was one in Paris, where I live. Went to sign up AND IT WAS ALREADY MAXXED OUT!!! Only 10 minutes after I had gotten the mail! What a disappointment! What’s a mother to do?!?!


  6. Mary

    Too far for me 😦


  7. ramonakent

    Sounds like a lot of fun!!


  8. starlaschat

    How about Montana WordCamp? It could include real camping and fishing. Sounds fun to me! ;+)


  9. shamballa9944

    Sounds like fun. Too bad I’m 3000 miles away!


  10. Breland Kent

    I mean, there are probably WordCamps that go to New York but I never hear about them… O.o When are they?


  14. Dominique Garcia

    I wish I could go. 😦 But now that I know more about them, I will plan to go to one in the future. Do you offer seminars on how to improve and grow your company’s website?


  15. Jennifer

    Looks like a great lineup of speakers; it would be supercool if it could be webcast for those of us unfortunates not able to attend.


  16. sid

    can make it to camp if it is outside U.S. !!!!!

    • Paul Kim

      There was a WordCamp UK held in Birmingham in 2008 — it really depends on the local community deciding to organize the next one.

    Oooooh, lonesome me-eee! I gotta stick around the home campgrounds, but really like what you are doing in having these WordCamps… This has got to be the reason why you are able to do so many great things in making WordPress the best place to blog… Keep up the good work and have fun doing it!


  43. hellaPR

    Nice! Do you need any volunteers in SF by any chance? I would love to help out!


  44. Magnus

    Or Norway WordCamp some day 😀


  45. nadiaritz

    Come to Oslo, Norway!! 🙂


  46. Tom Prete

    Wait, it’s less than a week before WordcampSF and there is no actual schedule of who’s speaking about what and when? Lame. Totally and completely lame. I’ve been waiting for weeks to get a ticket in the hope of a real schedule, but it looks pointless.

    If I’m wrong about there being no schedule, someone please school me.

  51. seaportsoapopera

    Oh, I missed the one in Orange County! Too bad!


  52. pranabchatterjee

    Yup. Saw it. I think the comment was not there when I commented. Or maybe I had overlooked it in my disappointment. LOL.

    And after seeing the link I must say I am in major envy! Sigh….


  53. Play Syndicate

    It’s a very nice idea. Would be fun to join you! 🙂


  54. maya

  55. fatgan

  56. Moco Scribe

    I think that I’ve asked this before….when will wordpress come and arrange a ‘camp’ in second life…there are thousands of second life bloggers…it would be fun if nothing else!


  57. nohawagih

    nothing in Egypt?
    maybe I should just contact the Dubai organizers and meet somewhere in between!


  58. scarletsculturegarden

    Too bad this is all in the US of A – I’d come if you ventured over to the UK! Still, for everyone who’s going, have fun!


  59. Dr. Serdar دکتر سردار

    Good idea! But when will it be in Canada – Manitoba – Winnipeg ?


  60. Car
