We’re less than a month away from the inaugural WordCamp US, the largest WordPress conference in the world. Join us in Philadelphia for two days of informative sessions and stimulating conversations with everyone from blogging newbies to the most experienced WordPress developers in the world. WCUS will be on December 4–5 (with Contributor Day on the 6th), in Center City at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
In previous years, WordCamp San Francisco has acted as the official annual WordPress conference, where WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg gives the “State of the Word,” sharing the latest WordPress developments, answering questions from the audience, and offering his thoughts on what’s next for WordPress — and the future of the web. This year’s “State of the Word” will happen at WCUS!
The event is packed with two tracks of sessions plus lightning talks, including “From Blog to Book: Re-purposing Your WordPress Blog into an eBook,” “Starting/Growing Your WordPress Meetup Community,” and “Publish in 10 Minutes Per Day.” Check out the schedule to find your favorites — there are topics for everyone, from seasoned developers to new bloggers.
We encourage everyone in the community to participate! Tickets are $40, which includes access to both conference days (December 4 and 5) and Contributor Day (December 6), a limited edition t-shirt, lunch each day, and admission to the after-party.
If you can’t make it in person, you can grab a Live Stream ticket for $10, or a Live Stream ticket plus a t-shirt (which will be mailed to you) for $20. We expect this event to sell out, so get your tickets now!
Attending a WordCamp is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the community, learn about new trends, and meet other WordPress users as passionate as you. If you can’t make it to Philadelphia for WCUS, consider upcoming WordCamps in Dayton, Miami, Paris, and other locations in the next few months.

Many cities also have informal monthly or regular meetups that are open to all: browse the entire list of WordPress Meetups. Automatticians, the people behind the scenes at WordPress.com, are often in attendance, and so we’d love to see you!
