After two long years, WordCamp US is back and in person! The biggest WordCamp event in the US is back and better than ever in sunny San Diego, California. On September 9-11, hundreds of eager WordPressers will descend on Southern California to learn, network, and connect. 44 speakers from around the world are lined up to talk about everything from accessibility to the WP-CLI.
While each talk is going to be incredibly informative and fun, we wanted to highlight a few you definitely won’t want to miss.
Can’t make it in person? The whole even will be livestreamed here.
