WordCamp in San Francisco

Posted July 11, 2006 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Events, WordCamp.

On August 5th, 2006, we’re planning a WordPress user conference called WordCamp. The idea is to bring WordPress users and developers so we can meet each other face to face, share stories, and try to figure out the future of our little corner of the online publishing revolution.

The conference will be a 1-day event, with a party that night, and be free to anyone and everyone. We’re aiming to do it in the style of BarCamp, so the agenda will be largely determined by you guys. I’ve posted a little bit more about the ideas behind WordCamp on my blog.

I know it’s relatively short notice, especially for folks in other countries, but if you think you can make it or if you just want more information check out WordCamp.org, where we’ll coordinating the event. I’m really looking forward to meeting people I interact with online every day.

  5. [...] I’d love to go to the WordCamp WordPress user conference. However, there’s one small, unfortunate detail that will make it impossible for me to go: it’s in San Francisco. I’ve never been on an airplane before, so I’d more than likely have to have someone go with me, which would just be entirely too expensive. [...]

  11. [...] Well, time to update yet again. I have some things to rant about, and then there’s WordCamp. And no I’m not talking about a camp for word lovers, sorry.. you’ll have to get your love for words at some other camp. This is really cool.. http://wordpress.org/development/2006/07/wordcamp-2006/. I wouldn’t mind going, if I had a way to get there. That just sucks. There’s things I’d love to do, but no way to get to where the ‘things’ are. There’s always a setback somewhere. I’d definitely go if I had a way though. I’d love to meet the developer’s of WordPress. Who create such an amazing program, and very flexible, that houses thousands of blogs, including mine. I’ve been using WordPress since version 1.5. And it’s changed alot since then. It had import features, so if you ever decide to change from LiveJournal, Blogger, TextPattern, DotClear, you can import your old posts and WordPress. So far only the Blogger one shows posts and comments import. Anyway.. WordCamp would be awesome. If only I had a way to get there. [...]

  16. [...] A member or two from the RMX Direct team will be down at the Word Camp 2006 ‘barcamp’ style event in San Francisco on Saturday, August 5th. This is a free, spontanenously created event where people get together, figure out what they want to hear (and talk about) as it regards a topic. In this case, the focus is “Word Press”–the leader in open source blog platforms. The exact location and time is to be announced. The list of participants is growing pretty quick. Here’s more info on Matt Mullenweg and his ideas behind WordCamp. [...]
