WCUS2022 is Announcing Speakers – Round 2. So, here is the list.
This year will be the first in-person WordCamp US since 2019 and will be held at the Town and Country San Diego. WordCamp US 2022 is gearing up to take place on 9-11 September 2022 in San Diego, California. The event is nearing and with that, the preparations are at their peak.
