WordCamp San Francisco 2014 announced

Planning for WordCamp San Francisco 2014 is underway! The next WordCamp SF will be held the weekend of October 25-26.

As we move forward, we’ll post here each week with an update. Note for anyone already opening their favorite travel-booking site: we’ll probably have a couple of days of pre- and post-WordCamp events, so while we definitely want you to save the date now, if you’re booking nonrefundable travel you may want to wait a little longer so you can consider the final schedule.

If you don’t want to miss a single step of the planning process, subscribe to this site and follow @wordcampsf on Twitter. It’s going to be amazing!
