At the recent WordCamp conference in Los Angeles this past weekend, there were a number of web hosting companies in attendance. WordCamps are low cost events sponsored by members of the WordPress community that provide opportunities for sharpening your WordPress skills, learning new tips and techniques, and networking with fellow WordPress professionals.
As an added bonus, many WordCamps also give you the opportunity to meet with your current or prospective web hosting companies. With WordPress continuing to grow in popularity for all types of websites, it’s not surprising to see many web hosts contribute as sponsors of the event and to come out to meet with all of the WordPress users and developers.
This year’s WordCamp L.A. was again held at Cal State Los Angeles. Among the web hosting companies in attendance were InMotion Hosting, SiteGround, DreamHost, Pantheon, MediaTemple, and GoDaddy.
Whether you’re a WordPress newbie or a seasoned WP pro, I would encourage you to attend a WordCamp event in your area.
