This is the granddaddy of them all: WordCamp US, where WordPress users from everywhere (not just the United States) congregate for a WordCamp to talk about the world's favorite web publishing platform.
If we weren't busy printing WordCamp stickers sheets adorned with Wapuus and sending them to every corner of the globe, we'd be there, with bells on. Seriously! Look at this speaker list, it is packed with WordPress all-stars, including WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg. Then add in the practical sessions and Contributor Day, and you have three days of pure, open source software geekery.
This year's sticker sheet has peel-offs that are completely on point: a cuddly parchment cradling Wapuu (naturally!), a bold crest with WordPress logo and the location, a play on the Philly LOVE statue with the W logo (look for the W script), and three other logos treatments. Rockstar work from the design, from colors to layout to creativity.
More on where WordCamp came from...
WordCamp San Francisco was the first-ever WordCamp, organized by WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg in 2006. Over time, it grew into the official annual WordPress conference with over 30 speakers and 1500+ attendees converging from all over the world. Along with sessions by leaders in the WordPress community, it featured The State of the Word address, where Matt talks about upcoming WordPress developments and answers questions from the audience.
In 2015, WordCamp US was announced, with Philadelphia, PA as the host city. Philadelphia will host the conference for two years, before it moves onto another city in the USA.
