WordPress: WordCamp San Francisco call for speakers announced
The WordPress project has announced that it is now accepting speaker applications for this year's WordCamp San Francisco, the open source project's official annual conference. The 2011 event will take place from 12 to 14 August at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.
The organisers say that they are seeking people with specialised knowledge / expertise that makes them "the best possible person to talk about the subject", noting that they should also have a unique point of view and good public speaking skills. The call for speakers deadline is 15 June. Accepted submissions will be announced by 1 July.
According to the WordCamp SF web site, the 2010 event brought together more than 700 WordPress users and developers from around the world. Previous years have seen presentations by Matt Cutts, Richard Stallman, Scott Berkun, Karl Fogel, Tim Ferriss, Tara Hunt and John Lilly. Other past speakers have included core WordPress developers such as Mark Jaquith, business users running WordPress and several popular bloggers like Chris Pirillo.
