At WiredTree, we were not content simply providing outstanding managed hosting solutions for WordPress users. We wanted to see the WordPress community thrive. After careful thought, we decided to offer our support to WordPress communities in the United States by becoming a WordCamp global sponsor. If you are unfamiliar with WordCamp, the following provides a detailed look at everything it has to offer individuals and businesses. By the end, you will understand why we are proud to sponsor this informative, yet exciting tour of conferences.

What is WordCamp?

WordCamp is an informal conference that focuses on everything WordPress. This gives everyone in attendance a deep insight into the easiest and most popular website and blogging content management system (CMS) available today, WordPress. Because each community plans its sessions based on what topics they are currently most interested in, each WordCamp is different. For example, WordCamp held in St. Louis might opt to focus on topics that developers would be most interested in, while WordCamp in Atlanta may choose to concentrate more on user related topics. This is why an increasing number of individuals in the WordPress community attend more than one conference a year.

Who Should Attend WordCamp?

WordCamp lasts anywhere from one to three days and is always a low-key event that is designed to encourage people from all walks of life to attend, learn, share, meet, and make new contacts. Everyone, regardless of how experienced they may or may not be, will benefit from attending WordCamp. If you are a WordPress user, developer, blogger, or designer, you should definitely take a look at the upcoming WordCamp schedule to see when a conference is coming to your area of the world. If WordCamp is not coming to the city you live in, find one that is nearby and make the trip. It will be worth it!

WordCamp Conferences are Unique

WordCamp is not your typical fancy conference. Each event is organized by local volunteers who take care of everything from recruiting talented speakers and presenters (both local and national) to scheduling each session. In most cases, they host a breakfast or lunch (sometimes both) for attendees, as well as an after party, which is ideal for networking with other attendees. As an added bonus, they are usually able to arrange for a few freebies from WordPress companies.

WordCamp sessions take on a variety of formats, including:

  • Live demonstrations
  • Presentations
  • Lectures
  • Workshops
  • Panels
  • Interviews
  • Interactive Seminars
  • Question and Answer Sessions
  • Ignite-Style lightning presentations
  • And more……

Potential WordCamp Topics

Of course, every WordCamp is different, so you will have to check the schedule of the conference you are planning to attend for specifics, but here are a few potential topics you may see.

  • Choosing the Right Plug-in
  • Choosing the Theme That Best Suits Your Needs
  • WordPress Troubleshooting Tips
  • Hot Topics in WordPress
  • Making the Switch From Stagnant Website to WordPress Site
  • WordPress and the Importance of Social Media
  • WordPress Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Advice
  • Blogging Topics, such as How to Generate Ideas, Blog Sponsorship, Time Management for Bloggers, Beyond Blog Hosting, and Ethics in Blogging
  • Things Every WordPress Developer Should Know
  • And much, much more!

WordCamp Benefits

Whether you are new to WordPress or a seasoned professional, WordCamp offers numerous benefits. From learning how to work on WordPress and developing new skills for users of all skill levels to discovering new techniques and ideas, WordCamp offers amazing educational opportunities. Additional benefits include:

Hands on learning: This is especially beneficial for anyone new to WordPress. You can learn about various styles and techniques from experts.

Brainstorming and Sharing Ideas: With people from all walks of life attending WordCamp, it is a great chance to brainstorm and share ideas with others that can help you improve your own talent and potentially gain new clients.

Meet sponsors: Most sponsors, like us, try to set up booths at as many WordCamp conferences as possible. Not only do we enjoy connecting with WordPress users, but we appreciate any feedback or suggestions attendees may have. Come and meet us!

Plenty of opportunities for networking: WordCamp is definitely the place to meet others you can potentially collaborate on bigger projects with, as well as share content and links with. Exchange personal information or business cards with as many people as you possibly can. An opportunity may present itself in the future, so hold on to these cards.

WordCamp is inexpensive: Thanks to sponsors, just like WiredTree, ticket prices tend to be less than $40, which is an outstanding deal when you consider you will be learning from WordPress experts. There is also a good chance you’ll get a meal, t-shirt, and additional promotional gifts as well.

How WordCamp Can Help You?

Whether you are an individual or a business owner who is considering taking your employees to an upcoming conference, you can be certain WordCamp will be worth your time and any potential effort it might take to get there. After all, you will have access to numerous learning opportunities taught by experts in the field of WordPress, as well as others just like yourself, who will make great contacts in the future. By taking the opportunity to network, you may learn about upcoming blogging events, web design conferences, and much more that you can also take part in.

Why Does WiredTree Feel so Strongly About WordCamp?

We have said it before, but it is definitely worth saying one more time. We want to see the entire WordPress community thrive and we feel that WordCamp offers the training, education, and networking opportunities necessary for everyone in the community to do this. By sponsoring WordCamp, we are able to help keep attendance costs down, which makes it easier for individuals to take advantage of everything WordCamp has to offer.

To date, there have been 507 WordCamps in 207 different cities located in 48 countries across 6 continents. Thousands of people have taken advantage of the opportunities these conferences provide and at Wired Tree, we plan to help thousands more do so in the future.

Whether or not you have attended a WordCamp conference in the past, you can definitely benefit from attending one in the future.

Summary: WiredTree was formed in June 2006 to set a new standard for managed dedicated and VPS hosting. The goal was to provide clients with a superior managed hosting environment through customer service, innovative network design, a unique suite of services, and the latest technological advances in server hardware. A managed hosting environment that not only supported clients at all levels, but also provided a true value.

To realize this goal they created a modernized internal support structure to better handle client issues and to ensure fast resolution of incidents. Having years of experience in the industry, they knew what worked and what did not. Using this information to build a new system which would help deliver enhanced and streamlining support experience.

WiredTree designed a network that utilizes two logically separated networks, a public Internet network and a private internal network. This modern “network-within-a-network” design allows them to securely provide a wide range of services not available at other providers including advanced service monitoring and server performance metrics. Choosing Chicago as their datacenter location allows usage of reliable and high performance bandwidth providers ensures their public network performance delivers low latency globally.
