WordCamp US 2022 Wapuu

SurferPuu (pronounced sir-fur-poo) embodies the spirit of the area’s 70 miles of coastline, its land and marine life-themed amusement parks, beautiful vistas, and pre-dawn surfing in the crystal blue Pacific Ocean during endless sun-soaked days.

Drawn in the classic Wapuu style, SurferPuu:

  • Holds a WordPress aquarium with her pet fish, a tribute to the Birch Aquarium, the public outreach center for Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, which towers high above the coastline;
  • Rides a magical dolphin, an ode to the sixties network television series “Flipper”;
  • Rocks “Marge Simpson” cobalt blue hair, partial cornrows, and a large silver ring in her ear lobe; and
  • Wears vibrant throwback patterned board shorts and a surf leash ready to drop in on a ‘rad barrel’!

Wapuu Origin Story

In 2009, in a response to Matt Mullenweg’s call for ideas to promote WordPress in Japan, the community decided to create a mascot. Two years later at WordCamp Fukuoka (2011), Wapuu was debuted by the talented illustrator Kazuko Kaneuchi and the rest is history.

The illustrator Kazuko Kaneuchi designed the mascot as a free gift to the WordPress Community. These cartoon creatures often accentuate each local WordCamp marking that year’s theme or location.

A Personal Note

After two long years, WordCamp US is back and in person. Although it won’t be possible for me to travel to San Diego this year, most of my friends in San Diego will be among the lucky ones attending the biggest WordCamp event in the US, on September 9-11. Wishing to my friends to enjoy all 44 speakers from around the world who are lined up to talk about everything from accessibility to the WP-CLI. This WordCamp has a lot to look forward to!

The thing that sets WordPress apart from every other CMS is the powerful and dedicated community from all over the world. It is safe to say that WordCamp US 2022 will be a celebration of the WordPress Global Community. But again, which WordCamp isn’t?
