The third edition of WooConf is being held in Seattle, Washington, October 19-20. This year the event is narrowing its focus to developers and will feature eight workshops and more than 30 speakers. Topics include scaling, client relations, A/B testing, and enterprise e-commerce.
WooCommerce is currently active on more than three million sites and the plugin has been downloaded 31 million times. Developers are using the plugin all over the world, but only a small fraction of them will be able to make it to Seattle for the conference. WooConf is less than two weeks away but in-person tickets are still available at $699 per attendee.
A livestream of the conference is available for those who would like to attend but are unable to travel. Livestream tickets went on sale today for $50/each.
“The in-person ticket prices, the live stream tickets, and the support of our sponsors are what funds the conference,” WooConf co-organizer Aviva Pinchas said. “For those who are not in a position to pay for the live stream tickets or attend the event in-person, the video recordings will be released later for free, and there are a number of other ways people can participate.”
Pinchas said the team will be sharing updates on social media, the event’s blog, and in the WooCommerce Community Slack. They have also arranged with local WooCommerce meetup organizers to livestream parts of the event during free IRL meetups in 12 major cities across the globe. These satellite events will include local speakers and offer attendees the opportunity to connect with other nearby WooCommerce developers and store owners.
All of the recorded sessions will be published to the WooCommerce YouTube channel sometime after the conclusion of the event.
