Taylor, Zack, and Jeremy at WordCamp Vancouver

WordCamp Vancouver is coming up quick and 10up is excited not only to be a bronze level sponsor, but to also represent with three developers from our Portland contingent.

Zack Tollman, Taylor Dewey, and myself have all had the pleasure of participating in the entire WordCamp Cascadia circuit for 2012 and can’t wait to see the friends we’ve made and those we will make this weekend. The Pacific Northwest has a unique and wonderful WordPress community and we’re happy to be a part of it.

I’ll be starting the developer track off on Saturday with a talk on ‘Calm and Simple Code’. We’ll have a good time going through the reasons and best practices for remaining simple and coding with purpose when working with WordPress as a framework.

Later in the afternoon, Zack will be tackling the topic of cache invalidation in WordPress. It’s often easy to get started with the WordPress transient API and object caching in general, but things can quickly turn difficult when you start looking for the best approach to invalidating your caches to keep your data fresh.

And to top it off, we’ll be there for the first ever BuddyCamp the following day!

Be sure to look for us in our 10up shirts on Saturday, though we may change for your benefit on Sunday. Any topic is welcome. We can help you with your WordPress questions, converse about some geeky technical issue, or give you an overview of 10up and what kind of work we do on a daily basis. We’re always interested and we’re always hiring!
