Summer of WordCamps

by eric on July 11th, 2013 in: WordPress

It’s the Summer of WordCamps!

After an amazing WordCamp Seattle last month, I’ll be attending three more WordCamps in rapid succession:

In fact, my company, IvyCat is a sponsor of WordCamps Seattle, Portland and Vancouver.  We’re doing what we can to give love to the WordPress Community in the Pacific Northwest. :)

Hear Me Roar

I’ll be giving a talk at WordCamp Vancouver entitled 10 Tips for Better WP, Plugin & Theme Support, so if you’d like to see me sweat and stammer in public, or simply cheer me on, show up. :)

There are plenty of tickets still available for WordCamp Vancouver so I hope to see you there.

WordPress Seattle Meetup

Finally, the WordPress Seattle Meetup, which is over 1000 members strong and growing, has a new venue and format.

This new venue is terrific and will afford us the opportunity to have a mini-WordCamp every month with three separate tracks for Users/Bloggers, Designers/Themers, and Developers.

Hope to see you there.

  • Secure

Most importantly, a bulletproof site provides both your users and you with a satisfying experience, regardless of browser type, network speed, physical abilities, or preferences.

I’m going to highlight some easy tools to help you:
