Later this week I’m heading on a speaking tour of a number of cities in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand talking about the past and future of WordPress and some of the things I’ve learned in the past few years of building WordPress and Automattic. It’s been a number of years since I’ve visited these countries, and I’ve never been to Korea, Singapore, Melbourne, or Auckland before, so really looking forward to meeting the local communities in each of these cities and learning about how we can best set up WordPress for the coming decade of growth, especially in languages other than English.
If you’re near any of these cities and want to come by check out the following links for more information. Even if it says “sold out” already, as many are, put your name on the waitlist anyway because I know some places are already searching for larger venues, and there could always be cancellations or spaces open up at the last minute.
- Sunday, June 1: Seoul, South Korea
- Monday, June 2: Jakarta, Indonesia
- Wednesday, June 4: Singapore (info)
- Friday, June 6: Tokyo, Japan
- Saturday, June 7: Osaka, Japan
- Monday, June 9: Manila, Philippines
Australia & New Zealand
- Thursday, June 12: Melbourne
- Monday, June 16: Sydney
- Tuesday, June 17: Wellington
- Wednesday, June 18: Auckland
The schedule might be a little exhausting, but I wanted to make it as many communities as possible in the short window of time I have before I need to be stateside again.

Wow! What a trip. Good luck!
and how come you miss India ?
It’s a short trip!
See you in Jakarta Matt!
Pity that you’re not visiting China, could have been very useful to create some more WP awareness.
I’d like to come, me and with my brother(as my birthday gift also to him to meet you Matt) but unfortunately there’s no available slot anymore on Manila.
I’ve been long follower of Word press for while now, don’t forget the continent of Africa; the people need a way of expressing their world as well.
I love Tokyo!
Welcome to Auckland, Matt. You are my role model so I can’t wait to meet you in person.
All your new news is fantastic! Ma.tt you stand for “HUMANISM” thank heavens, so. <3! Matt, when you get back, I want to ask you and WP about something I have been working on, to help the kids like Elliot that you saw in the news. It relates to this post: http://vbonnaire.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/assessment-elliot-object-relations-manifesto-genogram/ I have been looking for a long time at some of the art you will see there. I have designed a plan for ART & Narrative for these kids? And WP would be the platform to use. This plan would allow clinicians to assess via art and text — kids who might be following in that path. Thank you. ps: as for Steve Jobs I used to work on one of his first Macs — the tiny square one! I don't even think you were born yet, but would he ever be proud of YOU. Just like him, and his ideas were.
I really wish I can be in Jakarta
That’s five countries in Asia in 10 days. And then to Austrailia! Quite hectic but sounds really exciting.
You should write a book on how to travel. Peace…from the Chi! 😉
Looking forward to seeing you in Seoul.
Hope you are having the biggest fun! Okay WP pros. Here is some more thought on how WP can be cure? <3! http://vbonnaire.wordpress.com/2014/06/02/depth-psychology-concept-of-mirrored-self-tx-plan-elliot/ I am really oversimplifying this, but I know you guys at WP will get this so bigtime.
Hi Matt… Thanks for visit Jakarta.
Thanks for your presidential endorsement. 🙂
Thank you for your presidential endorsement. 🙂
Good to see you here in Singapore.
Hey Matt! Just wanted to say I thoroughly enjoyed your talk tonight! (I’m the dude who asked about China). Am working on my start-up projects too full-time now so it’s great to hear about your advice for entrepreneurs like myself. And I love music AND pol sci AND economics too! Am guessing you’re sympathetic to the Austrian School.
Anyway, thanks for the great talk again! Learnt a lot today~
