A few days ago we wrote about two upcoming WordCamps: San Francisco and New York City. Shortly after posting, even more details emerged about the upcoming WordCamp 2008 in San Francisco, CA. This particular WordCamp is usually the biggest and greatest WordPress event of the year, showcasing an abundance of speakers, workshops, and more.
WordCamp 2008 will be held in San Francisco, CA on Saturday, August 16, 2008. This year, the event is located at the Mission Bay Conference Center, just down the road from AT&T park along the shore of Mission Bay. Tickets are just $20 and include admission for the day and a free t-shirt. You can still sign up online, so get your ticket soon!
WordCamp 2008 features a great list of speakers. Those conducting presentations at the conference include Lloyd Budd, Andy Peatling, Sam Bauers, Tom Coates, Liz Danzico, Tantek Çelik, and Chris Lea.
Topics Of Discussion
Among these speakers, a variety of topics will be discussed such as “Secure Coding with WordPress”, “Open Source business models”, “Crazyhorse, Next-generation WordPress”, “WordPress APIs — iPhone and Beyond!”, and “Hassle-free Upgrades”. Sounds like it’s going to be one hell of a party.
Do you have a gravatar on the web? Well, this year’s WordCamp SF badges will include a gravatar (up to 512×512 pixels) with an image of your choice. If you plan on going, make sure to set up your badge before attending!
So Who’s going?
If you’re going, let us know in the comments! We’re hoping that a few people who go will either do a live blog, Twitter the event, or set up a live video feed. WPCandy is also looking for a person to do some stuff for us while at the event, so if you’re interested, please let us know!
