See you there

At GoDaddy Pro, we are very pumped to finally (eventually!) be back in person at this year’s WordCamp Europe, which takes place from 2 June to 4 June in Porto, Portugal. We definitely missed being with our fellow WordPressers, but we did not slumber during the restrictions.

Follow us at WCEU and you will see we have made some new WordPress (super) friends, which we are proud to join. We have also deepened our commitment to the WordPress community through open source initiatives such as Five for the Future and virtual encounters.

Since last year, we have hosted nearly 200 events with approximately 2,700 participants and 100 guest speakers. To join, check out our event platform.

These are all good things, but it’s hard to beat the IRL experience of rubbing elbows with like-minded people. We’re so pumped up that we need to share a little bit of what you can expect from GoDaddy Pro at WCEU 2022.

Meet our WPSuperFriends

Look at us at the event, and you’ll probably see faces you recognize. We’ve joined forces with quite a few additions to the GoDaddy Pro family since the last time you might have run into us.

We refer to the group we put together as our WPSuperFriends.

These new members of the GoDaddy Pro team have driven transformation change at GoDaddy, especially in the way we approach the WordPress ecosystem. These brands and individuals sit far from silent, but use GoDaddy’s resources to make an even greater contribution to WordPress.

Currently we include WPSuperFriends:

  • Page – This pioneer in managed WordPress solutions makes the CMS accessible to all kinds of individuals and organizations.
  • SkyVerge The WooCommerce extensions created by these talented developers push the boundaries of what is possible with e-commerce.
  • Sucuri – One of the most recognizable names in website security contributes leading technology as well as thought leadership.
  • Manage WP Managing multiple sites becomes an easier task as users report saving hours each month for each site they manage.
  • GoDaddy Pro – Like the benevolent patriarch of the group, who provides guidance and resources.

We’ve learned a lot from these brands and it’s exciting to see what the future holds. In fact, we’re always looking for our WPSuperFriends, so if you’re into the WordPress game, consider joining.

A preview of GoDaddy Pro’s presentation

We’re lucky to have some really smart people at GoDaddy Pro and proud to have them in front and in the middle at WCEU. Here’s a preview of what you’ll see for us:

What do you offer at WCEU?

Security lessons learned from 2021: As with most years, a wide range of critical vulnerabilities have been found within content management systems such as WordPress, plugins, API keys, etc. I will summarize our 2021 discoveries and how these vulnerabilities (AnonymousFox, CC skimmers) have made an impact on the WordPress community, and what can be done going forward.

What is your experience with WordPress?

I have spoken at several WordCamps (e.g. Miami, Orlando) for almost seven years and myself a WordPress user for my own sites. I have been attending WordCamps since 2013.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I recently became involved with CrossFit. I am also a running enthusiast and these days I was exploring local parks and trails.

Outside WCEU we are still working on WordPress

In addition to the initiatives and virtual encounters mentioned above, our passion for WordPress has always been rooted in the contribution to the project as individuals – not just to support opportunities through corporate sponsorships.

We contribute our time, with GoDaddy’s support, to several Make.WordPress.org teams so that our much-loved CMS is the best it can be.

These contributions are not some mandate from above. It’s about believing in the power of open source and the WordPress project. It’s about giving people a voice, and the power of open source to create a truly open web for all.
