One of the humbling things about organizing WordCamp is learning how many people feel passionately about the WordPress community in Portland. The following companies are deeply committed to making WordCamp Portland a success, and we thank them profoundly for their generous support.
Not only has Digital Trends sponsored WordCamp Portland for 3 years running, but they also have provided space for our local meetup for over two years now. They help their readers navigate an increasingly digital world, providing trustworthy and unbiased product reviews written in plain English, as well as timely and entertaining coverage of the way tech is changing our lives. Also, they’re pretty big: 10 million monthly unique visitors and growing every month — and that’s before you get to our syndicated network featuring some of the biggest destinations on the web. Which is funny for those of us who think of them as just those friendly guys from down the block. Thank you, Digital Trends, for providing a home for the Portland WordPress community month after month, and for your support of this and previous WordCamps.
10up is a premium web agency that imagines, builds, and grows amazing websites with WordPress. 10up serves an outstanding collection of clients, ranging from small family businesses to diverse WordPress.com VIP clients like TechCrunch, Time Inc, Universal Sports, and Trulia, to universities like Bates College and the University of Rhode Island. Counting over a dozen credited core contributors to the WordPress project as employees, team 10up has the talent and know-how to conquer any project.
10up has also made its mark in Portland – they opened a brand new, satellite office in May! This will be the central hub for 10up’s face-to-face meet-ups, hack days, open houses, and sponsored events, in addition to being a regular office for their five Portland natives. 10up has consistently supported WordCamp Portland in years past, and we are terribly grateful.
WP Engine is the one of the most mature premium managed hosting platforms for websites and apps built with WordPress. WP Engine powers tens of thousands of websites, delivering the fastest, most reliable, and most secure web experience. Developers love WP Engine because they know that the ‘WP Engineers’ understand the challenges of developing WordPress sites, and have built an entire development toolkit with features like the one-click staging area, and .git for version control and deployment.
What does WP Engine love? Well, WordPress of course, and also WordCamps! They’ve been a sponsor of WordCamp Portland since 2012, and it’s always fun to give them succor from Austin’s terribly August heat. 😉 Thank you, WP Engine, for your support of this and all other WordCamps!
