WordCamp San Francisco is three days away. Think you’re out of luck because you’re nowhere near California, or didn’t buy a ticket before they sold out? Think again! Join the live stream, and attend WCSF without ever getting on a plane (or changing out of your pyjamas).
This year’s conference has an incredible lineup — whether you’re a themer, mobile engineer, hopeful core contributor, one-person (or 100-person) WordPress shop, pro blogger, or just registered your first site, WCSF sessions will take your WordPress skills from awesome to awesomer. And of course, WordPress co-founder and Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg will present his annual State of the Word talk (we’ll be live-tweeting it, too — follow along @WordCampSF).
Here are just a few of the sessions to look forward to — check out the full schedule here:
- Amy Hendrix: WordPress: It’s Made of People!
- Andrew Nacin: Current User Can Watch This Talk
- Jake Goldman, Brad Williams, Shane Pearlman, and Alex King (in a panel moderated by Matt Mullenweg): Teaming Up: From Freelance to WordPress Agency
- John James Jacoby: Beyond the Blog with BuddyPress and bbPress
- Yuri Victor: Why The Washington Post Uses WordPress
- Mark Jaquith: Confident Commits, Delightful Deploys
- Natalie MacLees: Setting Up Your WordPress Site: Six Stories of Joy and Despair
- Tracy Levesque: What You Don’t Know You Can Do – WordPress Development for Absolutely Everyone
This year, live stream attendees will also have access to the fun (and educational) conversations that happen between sessions, in the hallway, or at the lunch table. Members of the WordPress podcasting community will be roaming the halls of Mission Bay Conference Center, interviewing attendees, and capturing the WordCamp experience on video. (Thank you to members of the DradCast, WPTavern, and WPwatercooler for participating, and thanks to the WordPress Foundation for lending us the camera kits!)
Podcasters will be doing their best to upload footage to the live stream hourly, so you’ll be privy to “hallway track” discussions throughout both days. The interviews will also be published for anyone to watch on WordPress.tv within a few weeks, along with recordings of all the WCSF sessions.
You can still buy live stream tickets with or without a t-shirt — a live stream-only ticket is $10, which has to be the best bargain around for two days of WordPress education and inspiration.
