Accessing the WordCamp SF live stream

If you’ve purchased a live stream ticket to WordCamp SF, you’re in for a real treat! Enjoying WordCamp from the comfort of your living room, dining room table, or backyard is pretty fantastic. Haven’t bought a ticket yet? There’s still time! You can even buy a live stream ticket during the event.

The stream starts at 9am Pacific on Friday, July 26 and 8:45am Pacific on Saturday, July 27, and will be available at

You will need to enter the following information to sign in:

First Name
Last Name
E-mail address

If you’d like to join in the conversation via Twitter, the event hashtag is #wcsf. We’ll get as much hallway track content into the early Friday breaks as we can, and later in the event should have a steady supply of interviews and shenanigans.

If you miss any of the sessions on the live stream, don’t worry! All of the sessions will be recorded and posted on over the coming weeks.

Enjoy the event, and we’ll see you in the stream!

Live stream attendees: welcome to the Hallway Track

The live stream is a great way for people all over the world to take part in WordCamp San Francisco and learn from our amazing speakers. But what about all the fun (and educational) conversations that happen between the sessions, in the hallway, or at the lunch table?

This year, we’ve recruited members of the WordPress podcasting community to roam the halls of Mission Bay Conference Center, interviewing attendees, and capturing the WordCamp experience on video. Thank you to members of the DradCastWPTavern, and WPwatercooler for participating, and thanks to the WordPress Foundation for lending us the camera kits!

Podcasters will be uploading footage to the live stream hourly, so you’ll be privy to “hallway track” discussions throughout both days. The interviews will also be published – along with the recordings of all the sessions at WordCamp SF – on

Did the WordCamp SF live stream just get even cooler? We think so! By the way, live stream tickets are still available, with or without t-shirt.
