This year we’re trying something new — in addition to the traditional WordCamp SF at Mission Bay,  we’ll be hosting a community summit to bring together contributors to the open source project with the WordPress professionals who are investing in the platform, as well as mini-meetups for the active contributor teams.

Monday, October 27

An iteration on the 2012 WordPress Community Summit, this will be a day of group conversations between contributors and WordPress professionals to build bonds, identify issues, and plan upcoming projects. This event will have separate registration as the attendance is capped based on venue capacity, which will be the Automattic Lounge.

Tuesday & Wednesday, October 28-29 contributor teams will have two days to work on their projects together and make plans in a face-to-face real-time environment.

October 25-26, 2014
