The dates are set, the call for speakers is open, and the website is up: WordCamp San Francisco returns this July 26-27 (with Contribute Day — formerly known as “Hack Day” — on the 28th)!
WordCamp San Francisco was the first-ever WordCamp and is the official, annual WordPress conference. It’s a great place to come meet and learn from WordPress innovators from around the world and features the yearly “State of the Word” talk from WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg, which takes a look back at the last year and considers the next phase of WordPress awesomeness. Hone your WordPress skills, get inspired, and make new friends. If you can’t make it to The City by the Bay, follow along with the live stream and host a WordCamp in your living room.
(If you’ve never been to WordCamp San Francsico before, you can check out videos of last year’s speakers — as well as presentations from WordCamps from around the world — at WordCamp.tv.)
We want to make sure you get the most you can out of WordCamp San Francisco, and that means lining up great speakers — not just the speakers we love, but the ones you find the most inspiring. To make sure that happens, we want you to nominate your favorite WordPress speakers from the past few years (whether they spoke at a WordCamp, meetup, or other conference). You’ve got until May 1st to tell us who your best and brightest are.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be announcing ticket details, pre- and post-WordCamp events, speakers, sponsors, and more, so keep an eye on the WordCamp San Francsico 2013 blog or follow @WordCampSF on Twitter for the latest. See you in July!
