Diamond

WP Engine

Howdy Austin (And everybody who is gonna come hang with us!)

WordCamp Austin is right around the corner, and WP Engine is super pumped to be the Diamond Sponsor of the event. Austin is our home event, and we’re even going to make sure that our San Francisco folks fly into town to attend the event and hang out to talk all things WordPress with you all.

We hope to submit a few talks about WordPress version control, and perhaps about the ins-and-outs of building a WordPress-based business that can grow and be successful. We hope that you all are getting your talks together and are ready to send in your proposals. We also hope you’re ready to help out the organizers and be a volunteer.

Now, a bit about WP Engine.

WP Engine was founded more than 3 years ago in Austin, Texas to provide premium WordPress hosting that would take all the hassle out of managing scalable, secure hosting. Now, WP Engine has a full platform for anybody, regardless of technical ability to stage and deploy WordPress sites for themselves and their customers. Our developer tools include version control using Git Push, a one-click staging area that you can push directly to production. We also take daily site backups, and automagically update WordPress every time a new version is released!

Best of all is our amazing Support Team, many of whom will attend WordCamp Austin. If you have WordPress questions, grab one of the WP Engineers and see just how much you can get done on your site.

We can’t wait to see you guys!

Like many of our customers we started off as a startup and grew to be the leader in the open cloud and dedicated hosting. The more we worked in dedicated we began to see the rise of the cloud and the potential for vendor lock-in. For this reason we worked with NASA to build OpenStack, an open and scalable system for building public and private cloud. OpenStack provides both large and small organizations an alternative to closed cloud environments and has a highly engaged community of over 6000 individuals and over 190 companies.
