Newbie Workshop Sold Out!

The first-time blogger workshop we’re running on Friday, August 12 has sold out! If you wanted to attend but didn’t get a ticket for it in time, you should probably just go ahead and get your Sunday ticket before we sell out of those as well. If you want to be put on the waitlist for the Friday first-time user workshop, leave a comment on this post. If more spaces become available, we will contact people from this list.

    Would like a ticket to the Friday 1st-time use conf.

  18. Olivia Wong says:

    Please add me to the waitlist for the first-time blogger workshop.

  19. Eloise Maki says:

    Please put me on the waitlist. I hope you can get a BIGGER space.

    • Jane Wells says:

      If we used a bigger space, people wouldn’t be able to get the personal attention we intend. The workshop was capped at 80 people — if it was any bigger it would need to be a lecture, not a workshop.

  20. Please add me to the waiting list. With so many others on the waiting list, could you add another workshop? oh could you please think of something to include us all?


  21. Bill says:

  23. Nadia says:

    I ( and the friend of mine) were looking for newbee workshop and was going to attend Sunday workshop too. So, did not quite understand the meaning of Business Blogger Package – decide that it is package for two days – Friday and Sunday – and thus bought two tickets. The n we ‘ve seen a message, that Friday workshop is sold out. And now I ‘m confused – looks like we have tickets, but not for the event we would like to attend. Is it possible to put us on waiting list for newbee workshop. Thanks for any advice we can get – since I am pretty sure, that workshop for Business blogger is too advanced for us yet.

  24. Naomi says:

    Please add me to the waitlist

  25. Barry Ross says:

    Please Post what time the workshop starts and ends. Also a general agenda for the day if possible. Thanks.

  26. Penny Pennington says:

    I registered for Sunday, but would like to be put on the waiting list for Friday’s workshop.

  27. Mickie White says:

    Please put me on the wait list for the Newbie workshop. Or, let me know if there are any volunteer opps for that workshop that would allow me to come in and soak up the info. Thanks so much!

  28. Nancy Tackett says:

    I too bought the 3-day pass for WordPress Pro Package: 3-day thinking that Friday’s newbie session was included. Are all the sessions extra? My husband planned to attend Friday’s session at Mission Bay Center.
    Thanks much,


  29. please put me on the wait list for the newbie workshop. thanks!

  30. Pavel Binar says:

  31. Please put me on waitlist for Saturday in SanFrancisco.
    Also, can you add my partner, Sam Nelson.

  32. T.K. Iwata says:

    Darn, it was on my hotlist to get tickets! Need two tix if an additional day(s) gets added. Thx!


  33. Barbara G says:

  34. Tayson Bui says:

  35. Lisa says:

    I had purchased a ticket for the Friday wordcamp at Pier 38, but only just now responded to the request for additional registration information. The form was preceded by “you missed the boat” message. Does that mean I lost my spot? I also changed my email address at that point. I hope that didn’t mess things up.

  36. Hi,

    I would love to get on the waitlist for this.



  37. Cathy Walker says:

    Please add Cathy, Chynna, and Serena Walker to the waiting list. Three (3) in total.

  38. Cathy Walker says:

    I only see Microsponsorship available @ $500. Is this for One (1) pass to All Three (3) Mission Bay events? And I assume this does not include the Friday Newbie session.

    Also, my children have their own blogs aged at 9 and 11 – excellent writers – perhaps better than some adults. Could they attend the conference with me?

    Please confirm.


    • Jane Wells says:

      If you read the text above, we are completely sold out for every day, which is why sponsorships are the only available ticket types now. Sorry!

  39. Atul Jindal says:

    I am very much interested in attending wordpress conference. I just found online it is happening in San Francisco Bay area. Please help me how i can get into the conference.

  40. Cathy Walker says:

    Oh, I understood the “sold out” part perfectly. I am purchasing the Microsponsorship. My question is – does the Microsponsorship ticket cover ALL Three (3) days? And is $500 for One person One per three day pass?

  41. Jessica says:

    I’d like to be added to the newbie waitlist.

  42. Katharine M says:

    I’m a newbie and it turns out I have to miss Friday. I’d love to use my existing Saturday ticket for a new user session, if you add one. Thanks!

  43. Claudia Miro says:

    So bummed this is sold out – would love to be on wait list. Thanks!


  44. Pamela Hamilton says:

    Hi Jane,

    Posted on the program page – am interested in the newbie waitlist. Thanks!

  45. Carla Mays says:

    Need any volunteers??? Please add me to waitlist…love to volunteer in exchange for attending. A social entrepreneur’s life blood…LOL

  46. Mike says:

    Wait-list me for the Newbie Workshop, please!

  47. I too bought a three-day pass, but would like to attend the newbie workshop. Please send me emails about this.

    Thank you!

    Also, I have accessibility issues. Is there disabled parking available at either location?

    • Rose Goldman says:

      Hi Steve,

      At UCSF Mission Bay (the site for the main WCSF sessions) there is a parking structure with numerous disabled parking spots next to the elevators.

      At Pier 38 (the site for the Newbie Workshop) there is metered parking across the street (which I believe is not metered if you have a disabled placard).

      Contact me (rose at automattic) if you have further questions about accessibility.

  48. Peter Imai says:

    Hi there,

    I’m writing on behalf of Tony Chen, an amazing student from the academy of art that I work with. He’s a talented photographer and aspiring designer. I’d love to help show him the virtues of worpress and know that wordcamp is a perfect place to do it.

    Please let me know if any tickets open up – or the saturday workshop gets put together.

    Thanks so much. Looking forward to the event!

  53. danelle says:

    Please save me a space for the newbie wait list. What every day works I’ll be there.

  54. Was a solution ever reached for those who bought the 3-day ticket assuming it included the Newbie Workshop?


  55. Ralph says:

  66. Kim Owens says:

    I’ve posted this question on Twitter a few times and am now leaving a comment here — will livestreaming be available and if so, where would I register for that? I don’t see a spot on the current registration page.- thanks!

  67. Kim Owens says:

    Nevermind. Looks like you’ve updated the reg page. Apologies.

  68. Lorien Fenton says:

    Why not stream the Friday session? I’d pay to watch….

    • Jane Wells says:

      Disparate locations, and the focus is on helping people set up their own individual sites. It’s one thing to film a lecture or Q&A, it’s another to film people while they are learning. This workshop is not the only way to learn how to use WordPress, and there are lots of video tutorials on the web already, many of them free at
