WordCamp US 2017 is Livestreaming All Sessions for Free

WordCamp US is kicking off this morning. If you couldn’t make the journey to Nashville, you can still follow along at home or wherever you are in the world. Livestream Tickets are free on the event’s website. Once you’ve registered for a ticket, head on over to 2017.us.wordcamp.org/live-stream/ and you’ll be able to tune in to the Fiddle Track, Banjo Track, Guitar Track, and the State of the Word (scheduled for Saturday, December 2, at 4PM CST).

WordCamp US will be running three tracks simultaneously for both days of the conference and all sessions will be livestreamed. Check out the schedule to find sessions you want to attend from home. Volunteers will also include captions, which will be embedded within the live stream video. If you have any problems with the stream, the event has a page dedicated to livestream attendees with a backup stream, as well as a troubleshooting page for livestream support.

If you’re following along on Twitter, the WCUS Twitter volunteers will be providing threaded coverage of sessions. This should keep your Twitter stream a little tidier with a kickoff tweet for each session, followed by live coverage threaded under each as replies.

Want to see WCUS hosted near you in 2019/2020? Applications for host cities opened today. If you want to be part of the team that makes WCUS happen in your city, talk to your local WordPress community organizers about filling out an application for the next host city.

    1. Think I’ll give up on the livestreams impossible to follow the audio, video artifacts and frame freezing constantly. I’m in the UK but have 50Mbs connection.

      Have to catch these after.

      1. Hi Jeff – The AV team is working on getting the audio/video issues fixed up – thanks for your patience. All the talks are being recorded and will be available at https://wordpress.tv/ so you can catch anything you missed.

        As for the direct Livestream URL, it’s not available directly there, only via the embed.

      2. The livestreams should be much more stable now – you may need to refresh your browser.

  1. Trying to watch on 4G here in the UK, with plenty of bandwidth ~~ http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6846276269.png and the video feed and sound keeps stuttering.

    I restarted each of the videos which had this problem and when started again they stuttered in exactly the same place.

    Its made it all but impossible to watch, which is a shame.
