The WordPress community summit will take place on December 2-3, 2015, in Philadelphia, PA two days before WordCamp US. The summit will be held at Impact Hub Philadelphia, a co-working space where freelancers, entrepreneurs, and social innovators work together, share ideas, and build networks.
Impact Hub is spacious and has dedicated meeting and conference rooms. According to the announcement, the summit is invite only similar to last year’s event at WordCamp San Francisco:
The WordPress Community Summit is a smaller, invite-only event for active members and contributors on the many teams that work to improve WordPress: Core, Design, Mobile, Accessibility, Support, Polygots, Documentation, Themes, Plugins, Community, Meta, Training, Flow and TV .
A survey or application form will soon be published which will result in a pool from which the attendees will be invited.
The summit is a rare opportunity for members of various contributor teams to focus and work together in the same physical location.
Annual WordPress Survey
If you use, build, or make a living with WordPress, please take the annual survey. Results will be shared during Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word presentation at WordCamp US. The more people who fill out the survey, the more representative the data will be.
Watch Mullenweg’s State of the Word presentation from 2014 to see results from the previous survey.
Real quick clarification: it’s “invite-only” similar to last year’s WCSF, where the intention is to offer a survey/application form (asking for community contributions, etc.) which will result in a pool from which the attendees will be invited.
