San Francisco Upgrade Party

Posted February 12, 2005 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Events.

Tuesday, Feburary 15th, from 6-11PM, I will be hosting an upgrade party for people interesting in moving their blogs to 1.5. There will be food, drink, and wi-fi, so bring a laptop or your account details and get your blog on the most advanced blogging software in the world. You can upgrade from any previous version of WordPress or any other platform we have an import script for. If you’re worried about breaking something, the best time to do it is when a developer is right there.

Upgrading will only take about 5 minutes, but stick around afterward and socialize with fellow WordPressers. I also heard a rumor that there will be celebrity guest appearances by gurus Eric and Molly. After the party I’ll update this entry with a list of everyone who got upgraded.

WordPress Upgrade Party
6 PM — 11 PM
333 1st Street, at Folsom
San Francisco

If you need more details email M at this domain. If you want to come but don’t use WordPress at all, that’s cool too, just enjoy yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I bring anything? We should be well stocked, but if you’d like to bring something please bring something snacky or drinks. I promise it won’t go to waste. 🙂
  • Where do I park? There is good street parking on both 1st and Folsom, I’m not sure when the meter stops though.
  • Where am I going? There will be a sign at the front desk telling you where to go once you’re inside.
  • Can I bring a friend? Please do!
  • Why is it 5 hours long? It’s open-house style, people will be coming and going all night as their time permits. Even if you can just stop by for a few minutes, drop by and say hi.
