Missing out on WordCamp

Rebecca and I tried to develop some sort of insane plan to attend WordCamp in San Francisco this weekend. Alas, the income is overshadowed by the expense of such adventures, and there is a wealth of information being shared that I would like to have been apart of.

WordCamp is a 2-day conference for WordPress users and developers. The first day will focus on how to be a better blogger, the second on the development and future of WordPress.

7/21-7/22, 2007
Swedish American Hall, San Francisco CA – Google Map
Twenty-five dollars, with scholarships available.
To get WordPress users together, learn from each other, figure out the future of publishing on the web, and have a good time. [wordcamp]

Nonetheless, The WordCamp Report is the site to keep up to date with what’s going on at WordCamp over the duration of the event, especially for non-attendees like me. I also heard on The WordPress Podcast that they will be checking in from time to time with updates from the conference, if not giving a nice wrap up in a later episode.

Would have been neat to meet the likes of Matt Mullenweg or Dave Weiner. John Biehler is running amok down there, so I’m sure he’ll have plenty of pictures and things to say about it.

Update: Starting to see a lot of pictures from the event come through on Flickr here.

  1. Sorry you missed out on the camp, and on San Francisco… it’s beautiful there right now! I’m a bit farther inland where it is way too hot (insert sad, sweaty face here).

  2. I never got around to posting updates from the conference, but subscribers to the podcast mailing list have access to a long meetup involving nearly everybody from Automattic and several other notable WordPress users.

    And finally, Aaron and I will have an episode out early next week where we’re sure to talk about what went on there.
