We have a few last minute announcements:
We will be having a Happiness Bar! For those who do not know what a Happiness Bar is, it is kinda like the Genius Bar at the Apple Store. We will have experts available to help you with specific problems you might be facing. Come ask a few questions or sit down with a professional and go through each issue. Bring your laptops!
We are having an after party! Plan to make your way to Geekdom after WordCamp San Antonio for the official WordCamp San Antonio taco dance party! There will be drinks (including Alamo Beer), street tacos, a photo booth, a DJ, and plenty of camaraderie from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.
We look forward to seeing all of you on Saturday!
WordCamp San Antonio is a one-day conference for people who:
- Use WordPress
- Design WordPress
- Develop WordPress
- Blog on WordPress
- Like WordPress
- Have a business website on WordPress
- Want to learn WordPress
Who should attend?
Everyone! No really, everyone! The event is on Saturday October 22nd, 2016 and will be a full-day of workshops, networking, and previewing new products and services from our sponsors (while grabbing cool stickers and t-shirts). Even if you don’t like any of those things, you get a cool t-shirt, swag bag full of goodies, and lunch for only $20.
Do I have to be a coder to get something out of the sessions?
Absolutely not! We will have three tracks: Beginner, Business, and Advanced, so no matter what skill level you are at, we have something for you. View our schedule to see the topics in each track.
Show me your references!
Not a problem! We had the inaugural WordCamp San Antonio last year and the community response was better than we could’ve ever asked for. Take a look at what people had to say:
Social says it all

But it’s kind of far for me to drive.
We know, but Texas A&M University is a beautiful campus, and only a short drive from downtown San Antonio! Our schedule gives you a nice window in the morning (7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.) to get to the campus and get checked in, and the event will be done by 6 p.m. which gives you plenty of time to hit downtown for dinner. Plus: what else do you have to do on a Saturday? Come enjoy the fun!
Ok, I’m in!
