WordCamp San Francisco 2008

It’s hard to believe, but it’s already time for our annual WordCamp San Francisco conference.

This year’s speaker lineup is, how to put it? Kickass. Not to mention swiftly growing. Automatticians and other awesome WordPress users will tell you all about:

  • The future of WordPress
  • How to be a better blogger
  • Increasing traffic
  • Fun with APIs

And tons more.

Be the first to catch a brand-new rap about WordPress by Chuck Lewis, aka The SEO Rapper. Got questions? Bring them to our version of the Genius Bar. The geniuses are itching to be stumped. Try it. I dare you.

This year’s conference is a one-day event, August 16 at the Mission Bay Conference Center. Signups will be closing soon, so head over to the WordCamp site to register.

There’s also a special event the day after WordCamp: the WordPress Charity Scavenger Hunt.

The team that racks up the most points completing missions and finding weird stuff around SF wins sweet WordPress schwag. All proceeds will go to 826 Valencia, a local non-profit dedicated to helping students advance their writing skills. Register via Eventbrite to participate.

    WordCamp@SF is great. It would be better if there is such online WordCamp too… Surely, will join the online version, if any.

  36. Douglas K. Adu-Boahen

    You guys need to set one up down here in London…better still an online one. How neat would that be.

    You guys and gals really need to put something online for those of us that can’t make it.

  40. dreamer0507

  41. hapitri

  42. Virgilius Sade

    There should be a camp for Australia too for the people who live Down Under in major places like Perth and Sydney :)

  43. Nita

    If you ever have a contest where one can win a free ticket to San Francisco plus hotel stay included :) then perhaps I have a chance of coming. :)

    Come up to Medford. It’s on I-5, close to Crater Lake and the Shakespearean Festival…and the valley could use the company from the intelligensia.

  77. Viper007Bond

    I can’t make it to SF, but I’ll be at the Portland one in September! :D

  78. cindybin

    Talk about advancing your writing skills! Why must you use such a crude, offensive word? I’m talking about “kick*ss”. Is that how you normally talk? This is the second time in two days I have signed into WordPress to find offensive language right there in the featured blogs list that everyone can see. Yesterday it was somebody posting something using the sh-word. I couldn’t help but see that right as I signed in. And now your blog with the a-word. You know, there are ladies reading these sites. Please watch your language.

  79. cindybin

    Oh, and nobody above me even mentioned anything about you using the word “kick*ss”. Doesn’t this offend anybody? Or is this how everybody talks these days?

  80. h0neyb

    I’ll see ya next year! Who knows mayBEE I’ll even do a Live Beedoodle! :p..

  81. aminhers

  93. bauermann


    First of all, I appreciate the hard work the wordpress.com team does, and think it’s a great idea to blog about it and make it public. But I’d like to ask that the annoying yellow notification that shows up in the blog stats page for each wordpress announcement be removed. Or at least, that it shows up only once for each announcement.

    I clicked on the link just to get rid of it.

    Thanks and regards.

  94. william2233

    I need a month in advance, so until the next time, enjoy the rest of your summers.

  95. Adam

  100. carlotta17
