For anyone who may be living under a rock, tell us… what does Jetpack do, and how long have you been doing it?
Jetpack is a plugin that provides some of the most critical and desired features for WordPress sites by connecting your site to the community and services provided by WordPress.com. We’re able to provide our users with some pretty fantastic things: bulletproof security, proven reader engagement and traffic building tools, content delivery, and many other services that folks need to build and grow their sites.
Every year, WordCamp London relies on the financial generosity of WordPress agencies to help support the cost of organising and hosting a successful WordCamp. This year, we’re delighted to be joined by WP Engine, Heart Internet, 34SP.com and SiteGround as Stall tier sponsors.
Our Stall sponsors will be exhibiting during the event, so please do take the time to pop over and say hello; you may want to ask them questions about their services and products or simply say thank you!
There are sponsors who support a few WordCamps, and there are sponsors that support all of them! The following Global Sponsors have taken on the mission of providing funding for all WordCamps happening worldwide, and we’re super grateful to have them with us for WordCamp London 2017.
Join us in thanking them for their ongoing commitment to the WordPress community, and drop by to say hello on the day 🙂
Speaking at a WordCamp, is awesome. You get to share something you’re passionate about, folk listen, everyone wins. It takes courage, for some a lot more than others. We’re hugely grateful to the 44 speakers confirmed for WordCamp London this year.
We love our sponsors, and we love raving about them as much as we can. It seems this goes both ways! Here’s what our sponsors said about WordCamp London 2016:
‘Thanks for a brilliant event. Everything was amazing across the whole weekend. Well organised and literally every accessibility use case catered for. As sponsors, we had the opportunity to make our mark on the attendees and showcase our products direct to agencies and developers. A lot of hard work obviously went into organising the event, and it showed. Fantastic work.’
Each year the success of WordCamp London relies on a brilliant team of volunteers who kindly take on the wide variety of roles and responsibilities required to make WordCamp London the best it can be.
WordCamp London 2017 is no exception – and we need you.
WordCamps are created by passionate, eager and reliable people. If that sounds like you, then step up and let us know you’re interested in joining our backstage team.
If you’re considering becoming an organiser for future WordCamps, volunteering will give you hands-on experience with how the event is run. If you’re new to WordCamps, volunteering can be a great way to just get stuck in with the whole ethos of the WordPress community.
