WordCamp San Francisco is one of the most important WordPress events of the year. Contributors from all over the globe travel to connect and inspire one another at the event where Matt Mullenweg traditionally delivers the annual State of the Word address.
This year the activities will be spread out over five days to incorporate community and contributor events. Saturday and Sunday, October 25-26 will will be dedicated to the 2-track WordCamp conference at Mission Bay Conference Center. The organization team expects approximately 800 attendees. Applications for speaking at WordCamp San Francisco are now open, and you can even nominate speakers for the event.
The WordPress Community Summit will take place on Monday, October 27. Unlike the first summit, which was held in 2012 by invitation only, this year’s event will have an open signup form. Signups will be reviewed in order to ensure each attendee’s involvement in the open source project.
Tuesday and Wednesday, October 28-29, will be dedicated to mini-meetups for WordPress contributor teams where they will connect in person and work on projects together. The agenda and goals for these days will be decided in advance on the team blogs.
WordCamp San Francisco organizers are expanding the travel assistance program this year in order to help bring in a more diverse group of WordPress contributors, users, and educators. The application deadline for travel assistance is June 30, 2014. Anyone who is unable to attend the event without financial assistance is encouraged to apply.
