We love watching the WordPress community grow as well as help facilitate that this year as WordCamp Los Angeles sponsors. Attending the camp this year, we were pleased to see record numbers of attendees in workshops, sessions and conversation. The WordPress community has developed quickly in the last decade. We are grateful to have watched and contributed to that growth.
Although our donation, as WordCamp Los Angeles Sponsors, builds community in California, it also benefits WordPress users globally. Were you aware that each WordCamp forwards excess, unused sponsorship funds to the next camp? That means that our sponsorship changes lives in Los Angeles and also benefits newer camps, such as WordCamp Ahmedabad in India. How amazing is that?!
9seeds is dedicated to supporting open source software and are grateful that WordPress makes it easy to do.
It is gratifying to watch a community grow. Through years of WordPress involvement we’ve witnessed many individuals start new, build knowledge, contribute and emerge as leaders in their local WordCamps. We’ve seen it happen all over the world.
This happens because WordCamps deliver to the needs of every skill level. This year WordCamp Los Angeles offered two half-day workshops, a pre-camp Beginner Day and an Advanced Development Track. An on-site networking after party concluding the first full day of the camp, which gave attendees a chance to further discuss topics on all levels and connect informally.
We Enjoy Being WordCamp Los Angeles Sponsors
2017 provided many opportunities for involvement in the open source community. In June, I personally helped organize WordCamp Orange County. Throughout the year I’ve attended and spoken at many WordCamps, as did many of our 9seeds team members. We actively participate in the communities where we live because we know that our involvement makes a difference.
We’ve learned from one another and seen how our contributions and the efforts of others have improved WordPress. We value each community member and every experience and hope you do, too.
