Venue and Dates Confirmed

WordCamp SF, the official annual conference of the WordPress open source project, will be held August 12-14, 2011. We’ll be returning to the Mission Bay Conference Center again, but this year we’ll be there for three days instead of one. The tentative plan is to arrange programming aimed at publishers on Friday, bloggers on Saturday and developers on Sunday (knowing there is overlap and some people will want to attend all three days). As we move forward, we’ll post here each week with an update. Note for anyone already opening their favorite travel-booking site: we’ll have a couple of days of pre- and post-WordCamp events, so while we definitely want you to save the date now, if you’re booking nonrefundable travel you may want to wait a little longer so you can consider the final schedule (including events such as contributor summit, design group meetup, WordCamp organizers brunch, etc).

For people who attended WordCamp SF last year who thought the annual event this year would be called WordCon, with WordCamp SF becoming a more locally-oriented event, you can read my long-winded explanation of why we didn’t go that route over the on the WordCamp Central blog.

  1. I want to go. Where do I sign up?

    • Jane Wells says:

      We won’t be opening registration until we have the schedule at least a little bit roughed out, so people can plan accordingly. If you follow @wordcampsf on Twitter, you’ll see when we open registration (I’d guess later this spring).

    Wil Wordcamp by chance have any interpreter services for Spanish Monolingual speakers. I have a lot of co-publishers that would love to attend this event.

    • Jane Wells says:

      There are no plans to make it a multilingual event at this time… if we did one language it would be incumbent upon us to translate into at least several more, since people come from around the world, which would be logistically difficult and cost-prohibitive. We will, however, publish high-quality video of all the sessions, and will make it possible for people to help out with translating the videos for subtitles.

    Looking forward to hearing Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word Address again this year!

    Have you planned of broadcasting the event online for overseas wordpress fans?

  5. Nick says:

    Will there booths to promote our word press websites or some kind of promotional opportunities?

    • Jane Wells says:

      There will be sponsorship opportunities, and I could foresee a mini trade show for providers of WordPress-based services to meet up with potential clients/customers, but having a booth to promote a website probably would be less likely, given the space contraints.
