WordCamp US 2022 has concluded after two days of presentations and a contributor day last weekend. Some attendees are still making their way home with hearts full of good memories until the next time they can gather in person again.
Outside of the main event, attendees had many opportunities to network, connect with new friends, and finally meet people they have been working with on the web for years.
Spent the weekend in San Diego doing my first WordCamp after several years of being away. I am totally overwhelmed realizing how much I missed doing these.

The event’s organizers have invited attendees to share their photos in the WCUS Community Photo Album on Google Photos.
The Job Posting board is back in business and shows several dozen agencies, product, and hosting companies hiring for roles across the WordPress ecosystem. Many of these companies were also sponsors of the event.
All the sessions from WCUS were recorded and will be coming to WordPress.tv soon. In the meantime, sessions can be viewed through the livestream recording on YouTube. There are separate videos for the Sun track (Friday and Saturday), and the Palm track (Friday and Saturday). The recording of Matt Mullenweg’s Q&A is available on WordPress.tv. He answered questions about improving contributor experience, accessibility, the timeline for multilingual features in core, and more.
At the end of his Q&A session, Mullenweg announced the location of the next WordCamp US. In 2023, the event will take place on the East coast at National Harbor, Maryland, a waterfront convention center located along the Potomac River, 20 minutes from Washington, D.C. The dates are set for August 23-25, which will include contributor days, presentations and workshops, and a WordPress Community Summit. Organizers said the event will focus on learning and creation.
