It’s summertime, and WordCamp SF planning is heating up for the big event in October. We’re excited to be trying something new this year — in addition to the traditional conference 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.
Schedule and Format
Saturday & Sunday, October 25-26: Our traditional 2-track conference at Mission Bay Conference Center, we’ll have sessions to inspire developers, designers, and content creators. Matt Mullenweg will give his annual State of the Word address, and we’ll incorporate workshops for people who are interested in becoming contributors to the open source project.
Monday, October 27: An iteration on the 2012 WordPress Community Summit, this will be a day of group conversations between WordPress.org 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: WordPress.org contributor teams will have two days to work on their projects together and make plans in a face-to-face real-time environment.
