WordCamp in San Francisco

Last year over 350 WordPressers of all ages and experience levels gathered in San Francisco to share a day together. We’re now halfway through 2007, and there is a new WordCamp happening on July 21 and 22 that I hope many of you can make it to.

This year we’re expanding the conference to two days instead of one with the first focusing on user and blog-facing topics, like search engine optimization and podcasting, and the second day will focus on more development topics, such as usability, iterative design, and the future of publishing. Speakers this year include several WordPress developers, Matt Cutts, John Dvorak, Robert Hoekman Jr., Dan Kuykendall, Om Malik, Rashmi Sinha, Lorelle Vanfossen, and Dave Winer. Check out the entire schedule.

Just like last year there will be free lunch (with the legendary BBQ on Sunday) and t-shirts for everybody, and a party on Saturday night. Unlike last year we’re asking for $25 to help cover costs, but if that’s a problem there are scholarships available. Registration will be closing July 9th and there will not be tickets at the door, so get yours soon.

    How can you host a fun conference on the same weekend the new Harry Potter book comes out? It is an injustice, indeed.

    Sounds like a great idea. I’d love to be there, but I’ll still be stuck in Cyprus unfortunately, spending several hours a day just lying on the beach, or swimming in the warm, clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. And if I see just one more beautiful, gorgeous, stunning beach babe, wearing nothing more than the briefest of thongs….. I won’t mind in the slightest!

    You could do a lot worse than hold a Wordcamp here sometime!

    Just a thought for future consideration: how about a WorldPress event in Europe some fine day? It might be fun. Open for people from all over the world, of cause. That location/destination will be more realistic for some of us. Guess where I live…

    Maybe we can get the next one over in Atlanta or here in Birmingham. We’d have a lot of fun!

    I’m still going to try and come out since I’m looking for some more help to finish out The Terminal in time for a late August launch. Maybe I can learn something from a podcast or a posted account of the event. Maybe a chance to pay for the chance to learn some more?

    Have a great time if I can’t pull it off.

    You know … it would be cool if we can organize a “wordpress day” all around the world. We set a date and we create a wordpress gathering a the same time (well, more or less) in our neck of the woods. Maybe we could time it with the release of newer version of wordpress? That would be cool…

    abarclay12 – the conference looks like it’s @ cafe du nord on upper market st. easy to get to if you are familiar with SF. the swedish hall is upstairs and cafe du nord is an old 1920s speakeasy underneath it. it’s a hip hangout…

    That would be a wonderful break from remodeling a bathroom. Take it from me it looks easy on the DIY channel but getting down to the nitty gritty, remodeling is a job. My house is tore up from here to there! Calfornia would be a unforgetable get away. I was hoping to see San Francisco when I made a trip to San Jose a few years ago but I wound up in DisneyLand instead. Not too bad though…all who go have a good time for me!
