WordPress at SxSW

Posted March 10, 2007 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Events.

Every year South by Southwest, or SxSW, is a very unique and affordable confluence of some of the most influential minds on the web gathering in the state where I grew up, Texas. It’s actually the first tech conference I ever went to, four years ago, and where I got my start down the path that has led me to where I am today.

Another movement close to my heart, Barcamp, is in full effect here in Austin. Saturday March 10 at 6 PM we’re going to do a WordPress meetup at the Barcamp venue Bourbon Rocks on 6th Street. Unlike many other SxSW parties, it is completely open to the public and doesn’t require a conference badge. There will be food and drinks available, and a live band after we wrap up the meetup.

So come enjoy part of your SxSW evening in this beautiful Austin weather with fellow WordPressers. In addition to the good company, we’ll have an assortment of cool WordPress stickers free for the taking.

Finally if you’re attending the conference part of SxSW Interactive, be sure to check out the following cool speakers who are WordPress users like yourself:

Congrats to each of the above for being speakers this year!
