WordCamp US is in a few short days and I’ll see you there!
You might know that I helped organize WordCamp Scranton over the summer. WordCamp US is that, on a much larger scale. I’ll be helping out at the Happiness Bar and registration table and I’m excited to meet up with old friends, finally meet some folks from the Twitterverse, and meet some new folks.
This is the first WordCamp US, morphing out of WordCamp San Francisco – the original and traditionally flagship WordCamp.
WordCamp San Francisco was the first-ever WordCamp, organized by WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg in 2006. Over time, it grew into the official annual WordPress conference with over 30 speakers and 1500+ attendees converging from all over the world. Along with sessions by leaders in the WordPress community, it featured The State of the Word address, where Matt talks about upcoming WordPress developments and answers questions from the audience.
In 2015, WordCamp US was announced, with Philadelphia, PA as the host city. Philadelphia will host the conference for two years, before it moves onto another city in the USA.
