Next Saturday, May 1, the WordPress community of bloggers, developers, designers and friends will gather in San Francisco for the 5th annual WordCamp SF.
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.
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?!?!
Too far for me :(
Sounds like a lot of fun!!
How about Montana WordCamp? It could include real camping and fishing. Sounds fun to me! ;+)
Sounds like fun. Too bad I’m 3000 miles away!
That sounds really great! :)
Have a great time co-bloggers ! Wish I could be there …ENJOY !
SOMEONE BRING WORDCAMP TO NEW YORK. PLEASE.
I mean, there are probably WordCamps that go to New York but I never hear about them… O.o When are they?
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?
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.
can make it to camp if it is outside U.S. !!!!!
Oooooooh, I live in San Francisco!
**Clicking the links to further investigate this WordCamp you speak of…
In Romania? Nothing?
When it will be in India?
In the next turn Jakarta :D
next time in vienna, pls! xD
how about WordCamp Manila??
When are you coming to UK?
This sounds great! Everyone have an awesome time ! Glad there’s one in Chicago!
sounds cool and btw i love ur twenty ten theme it is the theme ive been waiting for even though it is the new default. love the background, header, ability to put different headers on every page, it blows my brains. thought it would never come
Hey Paul, your write Matt is a lead developer. I’ve not seen him committing code lately (when was his last commit, back in 2004? ). So how do you think? I mean he’s your boss, right? So please talk nicely :).
How about Dubai?
I hope one’ll be held on Indonesia especially in West Kalimantan….
I AM 44 minutes away from SF!!!!!!!! But I can’t go.
why no Wordcamp Phoenix? Show us some love!
loved the last 2 WordCamp SF events but this one at $50 is out of my budget this year–even though it’s a great event and a great price…have fun, everybody! wish could be there!
Hey I wish I could attend but it is too far. However, when you come to Los Angeles I will be there…
hi Mr. Paul Kim, your event sounds really interesting, would you plan one in my country Indonesia ?
I would love to hear the speakers……you all do so much…have a good time..
May 22 – WordCamp Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
How about Manila WordCamp?
registering now!!!! :)
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!
Nice! Do you need any volunteers in SF by any chance? I would love to help out!
Or Norway WordCamp some day :D
Come to Oslo, Norway!! :)
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.
Feels stupid asking this. Any ideas of a wordcamp India, like ever?
Any chance of having WordCamp Philippines? :)
oops saw it http://philippines.wordcamp.org/
Oh, I missed the one in Orange County! Too bad!
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….
It’s a very nice idea. Would be fun to join you! :)
in indonesia? nothing?
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!
nothing in Egypt?
maybe I should just contact the Dubai organizers and meet somewhere in between! :)
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!
Good idea! But when will it be in Canada – Manitoba – Winnipeg ?
Would love to go but the travel’s a bit of a killer… maybe when you hook one up in Cape Town, South Africa :D
I’d love to have it on the top of the “Cervin” the view is better at high altitude!
Unfortunately too far for me too, otherwise I’d be there :-(
Wow this will be very nice when it comes to Brazil! =D
yay I am gonna join :D
WE need a Word Camp in Toronto!!
Any camp on the east coast by any chance?
I am sorry that WORDCAMP is not going to be organised near SERBIA. There are so many wordpress maniacs are here, in countries from former YUGOSLAVIA.
So bummed! Nothing in NY!!
