What Did You Learn at WordCamp SF?

WordCamp SF is August 4th. If you attended, share your most important discovery. If you didn't get a ticket, come and hear about the highlights of the event and the roadmap for the future of WordPress. We can also talk about differences between WCSF 2012 and past WordCamps, and what we'd like to see at future WordCamps.

Update, August 5th.

This was a fairly developer-oriented WordCamp. Unlike past years when there was always a track aimed at the bloggers and WordPress.com users, this WordCamp focused more on topics of interest to WordPress professionals.

Everyone will want to know what's coming in the next version of WordPress, the next mobile apps, and the new default theme, however, and we hope you'll all show up for our condensed version of this long, intense day.

A FEW TOPICS

  • Design for Mobile--and for Retina Displays
  • Speeding up Your Site
  • Parent-child relationships in custom post types
  • What Makes the Twenty Twelve Default Theme Tick
  • Getting Involved in the WordPress Community
  • Making a Living with WordPress
  • bbPress and BuddyPress
  • WordPress' Mobile Apps
  • What Lies Ahead for WordPress

For those who want a preview, Lanyrd.com has collected speaker slides here.

If you attended WordCamp SF 2012 and want to give a 5-minute precis of a session, e-mail sallie [at] eastbaywp [dot] com and let me know!

    The low turnout was unfortunate, but we had a chance to talk in some depth about what we would want to do if we had our own WordCamp.

    • Cyndi

      No haven't received any help, still can't blog. couldn't make the meeting. would appreciate a call from someone.... [masked], out for rest of day today... can someone call me tomorrow?

      August 22, 2012

    • Sallie G.

      Hi, Cyndi. Your best bet is probably to go to the Friday support group at Tech Liminal at 12:30, where someone can give you hands-on help.

    I am thinking about attending August 19, to meet people who know WordPress. Are Bill Davis and Thom Leonard in this group? Where is it meeting?

    August 13, 2012

    • Sallie G.

      Bill Davis is a member of the meetup. We meet at Tech Liminal in Oakland.

    What did I learn at WCSF? Not a darned thing - except next time to not buy a ticket until after I see a full description of the scheduled talks.

    • Tech L.

      Why don't you come to the meetup so we can talk about it? I definitely thought that this WordCamp was missing something, and would like to improve on it in the future - perhaps with "WordCamp East Bay" or a more general 1-day meetup or unconference.

      (er, and yeah, that's me, Anca)

      August 13, 2012

  • Anca

    I've love to talk about the Custom Post Types Session (parent-child relationships)

  • M. Chun Ming T.

    Thanks, Sallie.

    July 28, 2012

  • Sallie G.

    There are tools like http://www.premiumpress.com/auctiontheme/ to build auction sites with WordPress.

    July 28, 2012

  • M. Chun Ming T.

    Hi Sallie. Can wordpress be used for a website like Ebay or with Ebay like applications?

    July 27, 2012

  • Sallie G.

    I'm going, and I know Anca's going. You can view the list of attendees at http://2012.sf.wordcamp.org/attendees/

  • Amy L.

    Sorry - I wasn't clear - I meant "who's going" to WordPress SF (before our East Bay Meet Up)

    July 27, 2012

  • Amy L.

    So who's going? It might be nice to meet up there too, and put our heads together, share learning, save each other excellent seats, etc. :-)
