Entry #2: WordCamp San Francisco

Last modified on July 25th, 2008

San Francisco is without a doubt one of my favourite cities in the world. It’s situated right on the Pacific Ocean, nestled snugly between Marin Country and Oakland. While Napa Valley is usually extremely hot, San Francisco boasts a fairly moderate climate, with sunshine occurring on most days of the year.

In August, there’s going to be a WordCamp session down in San Francisco. Given that I’m a huge WordPress advocate, and that I love the Bay Area, I registered today and made the quick, impromptu decision to attend. Flights out of Vancouver are around $400, but are only around $250 return out of Seattle. So I think I’ll try and grab a late night flight on Friday and spend the weekend down in San Francisco.

Lloyd Budd is also heading down, so undoubtedly I’ll run into him during the event. Of course, Matt Mullenweg will be there too, and hopefully he’ll bring his new and improved camera out (since he last one apparently got stolen while traveling).

I gave a talk at the Vancouver WordCamp session about WPtouch, a fully featured iPhone theme for WordPress. Hopefully by the the time WordCamp takes place we’ll have released our big 2.0 version, which brings with it a ton of great changes.

If anyone else is heading down from the Vancouver area, drop me a line. Or, if you’re in the Bay Area and plan to attend, look me up.

This entry was written for Blogathon 2008, and in support of the Union Gospel Mission charity. If you’d like to donate to the cause, please visit the blogathon donation page. My goal is to raise $1000 in 24 hours.

    (Oh, Hi Andy! 🙂 )

    I;d love to go to something like this someday. I recently looked up what it would have cost me to go to BlogHer and it was $1500 just for the cheapest plane ticket & hotel.

    I’m seriously considering heading down again this year. Last year was a blast. Should be deciding within the next couple of days.
