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.
