WCNYC Video update

The team and I are still reviewing the videos. We have sent the first 5 back to the videographers to recompress and hopefully reduce the size down below the 1G limit of WordPress.tv. Once that has been done we plan on uploading those videos and handing them off to the WPTV team.

Thank you everyone for your patience. I assure you that we will have videos from WCNYC 2014 up ASAP!!!!!

Presentation Video update

We have received the initial batch of videos from the videographers. The team must begin reviewing these to expedite the upload of videos meeting the standards required for broadcasting on WordPress.tv. Please understand that there are many hours of videos to review and the team of volunteers will process them as fast as we are able to.

Thank you for your continued patience.

A few final reminders…

Are you ready for WordCamp?! With WordCamp weekend starting tomorrow, we just wanted to throw a few last minute details your way:


Be sure to keep an eye on the MTA website for any service outage or reroutes. For more information on how to get to the venue, check the Transportation page.

Arrival and Registration

Registration begins at 8am on Saturday morning. After you enter the Marriott on Adams street, head straight up the escalator, and keep straight to head into the registration area.

We’ll have coffee, tea, and breakfast items available to help you wake up and start enjoying all the goings on.

Your badge will have everything you need to know for the weekend, including the schedule, WiFi information, and more.

Internet Access

Cellular reception is limited in the venue, so you might want to put your phone in airplane mode while inside to save battery.

However, thanks to our WiFi sponsor, WordPress VIP, WiFi will be available throughout the weekend. We’re asking attendees to limit their connections to one device per person, in order to make sure the network isn’t overloaded.


Electrical outlets are available, but limited, so make sure your devices are fully charged. Better yet, put away the laptop and phone, and interact with your fellow human beings!

Happiness Bar

The Happiness Bar will be open all weekend, with the exception of lunch time and the post-lunch Keynote on Saturday.

If you’ve got a burning WordPress question, bring your laptop, and our Happiness Volunteers, will do their best to answer it!


Lunch will be provided on Saturday. Your badge will have a discreet indicator if you signed up for a Vegan or Kosher meal.

Social Media

Keep an eye on our official twitter account @WordCampNYC for the latest updates throughout the weekend. If you want to share your experience on social media, be sure to use the hashtag #wcnyc on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram and Vine.

If you’re not able to come, you can follow along with all of the social media flow on WP Armchair’s New York City site.

See you this weekend!

We’re so excited to bring you WordCamp NYC this weekend! The organizing team has been working on it for a long time, and we think you’ll be amazed at the amazing event we have planned.

See you this weekend!

August 2-3, 2014 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge
