WordCamp San Francisco 2010 Recap

WordCamp San Francisco has come and gone and here I am a month later writing a recap about it. I had an awesome time in San Francisco, not only for WordCamp, but also hanging out in California for a week!

WordCamp Day 1 was held at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco. The location was really nice and had plenty of room for all 700+ attendees at the event. I attended a few sessions throughout the day, but spent most of my time (as I usually do) chatting with fellow WordPress junkies in the hallways and outside.

For lunch we had an amazing BBQ buffet and some live jazz to enjoy while we ate outside. At the end of the day Matt Mullenweg gave his annual State of the Word address. However the best part was yet to come, and that was the afterparty!

The WordCamp after party was held at the Automattic lounge on Pier 38. After passing through security (yes security) we were treated to an open bar and a nice assortment of snacks including fresh made crepes! I knew we were in trouble when the drinks were being made at about a 90% alcohol and 10% mixer ratio.

I would share all of the photos from that night, but it would look more like the credits from The Hangover, so instead I picked my favorites of the bunch to share:

WordCamp San Francisco This Weekend!

In case you live in a hole and haven’t heard WordCamp San Francisco is this weekend! I’ll be attending the event with the WDS crew as usual!

It’s been about 3 months since my last WordCamp so I’m extremely excited for this event! It will be great seeing all of my WordPress friends and also making new friends. WordCamps are really all about the networking so if this is your first WordCamp be sure to hit the after parties and socialize!

This is also the first WordCamp since the release of Professional WordPress! I plan on bringing some copies of my new book to giveaway! If you are interested in getting a free copy make sure to track me down at the event to find out how you can do so. I will also have plenty of WDS schwag to hand out. I’ll be sure to write a recap of the event when I return next week.

If for some reason I don’t return next week it means I have decided to stay in California permanently. 🙂
