This weekend, 10up is sponsoring WordCamps on both North American coasts, as WordCamp Providence and WordCamp Vancouver host their annual conference. 10uppers are also busy preparing to play their part at both camps.
As an organizer for WordCamp Providence – an outgrowth of my organizer role at our local meet up – I have the honor of delivering opening remarks for Friday’s sessions and closing remarks for the entire camp on Saturday. Providence is close to our team’s heart. Our President started the meet up here back in 2010, and lived here for over 10 years. John Jacoby, our new Director of Web Engineering, lived in the city for two years, from late 2010 to early 2013, and helped organize last year’s WordCamp. Jess Jurick, Director of Web Strategy, started her career at 10up while living here. We couldn’t help but step up with a top-level, Anchor Sponsorship. The camp has a great line up, including a number of 10uppers.
